Windows Four years ago, July 2007, Microsoft released the first few tidbits of information about Windows 7. Vista had just been shipped, and it wasn't received well - both by critics and the marketplace. During these days, I argued that for Windows 7, Microsoft ought to scrap the Vista userland, and build an entirely new interface and userland on top of Windows NT, while maintaining a 'classic' Windows version on the side for business and other reluctant folk who want to see the 'new' Windows mature a little bit first. While they didn't do this with Windows 7, they are doing exactly this with Windows 8. Ladies and gentlemen, Windows 8 is the first 'cut the legacy'-release we've all been waiting for - and Microsoft couldn't have picked a better time.

It has happened before and people have disappeared, but it's his site so he can do what he wants.

Well, I am incredibly lenient, and have no problems with sharp discussion and debate (as you can clearly see in this thread alone). However, two comments were deleted in this thread, and in the interest of full disclosure:

- the first contained several instances of "design fags". I will obviously not tolerate such slurs.

- the second one was the bazzilionth personal attack on myself by one particular user, who has been showcasing such behaviour for months now. The bucket was full, so he got banned.
