Windows Two weeks ago, I published an article in which I explained what was wrong about Randall Kennedy's "Windows 7 Unmasked" article. This was noted by Infoworld's editor-in-chief Eric Knorr, who suggested that Randall and I enter into an email debate regarding the various points made in our articles. We agreed upon publishing this email thread as-is, unedited (I didn't even fix the spelling errors), on both Infoworld and OSNews. We agreed that Randall would start the debate, and that I had the final word. Read on for the entertaining email debate (I figured it would be best to give each email its own page, for clarity's sake. My apologies if this makes each individual page much shorter than what you're used to from OSNews).

The whole thing makes me think of power plants. If you were a power plant expert for the first half of the century, you'd notice a correlation between CO2 output and power produced at plants. Then The first Nuclear plant would be built and some industry stooge would declare that its an incredibly weak power plant, based on the C02 output.

I can't believe Thom never hit on a similar metaphor. Editor position, please!

You're hired.

Seriously now, that's a really good analogy, and really sums up my position perfectly. I could basically replace the entire ten emails about thread count with just this analogy.

Too bad I didn't think of it.
