Windows Now that Windows 7 has been out and about for a while, the first balance sheets regarding its success start popping up. Consumer helpdesk firm iYogi surveyed 100000 of their customers, and the results of that test paint a relatively positive picture for Microsoft's latest operating system release - but one problem point sticks out like a big eye sore.

But you're still not really changing anything architecturally in the OS.

98SE to XP was a completely different OS architecture, and XP to Vista / 7 is such a radical change that you might as well be installing a completely different operating system.

Sure, if you compare OSX 10.0 to OSX 10.6, it's a pretty large change, but really it's just been one service pack to another on the OSX side.
