Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y With Snow Leopard finally been given a release date and a price, the comparisons with Windows 7 are starting to pop up all over the place, especially focussing on the price aspect of things. While Apple's move to price Snow Leopard at 29 USD for Leopard owners is a very welcome one, the move doesn't mean that Microsoft is getting a price beating from Apple.

RE[4]: Really?

Agreed on all counts. As much as I disliked Vista (having tried it) and as much as I know about the Mojave experiment and all that Windows 7 is just plain faster on my setup than even XP x64 was. I am running the RC right now as my main OS and it is absolutely rock solid.

That's because Windows 7 takes better advantage of modern processors. Windows XP was written in a time where home users did not have SMP/multicore machines, those only came later. Both Vista and 7 are much more optimised for these types of computers/processors.
