Windows By all early reports, Windows 8 is going to be a good operating system. Microsoft's hegemony may be crumbling in a mobile computing onslaught, but its core empire remains undimmed. However, whereas Windows 7 had three versions, Windows 8 will apparently be ballooning to 9 versions.

I think I'll respectfully disagree on both points.

On the first, think about it this way: The more users you have, the more people you have asking questions about how things work, and the more people there are who have already solved that issue and can educate the askers. I know that the old saying "A person is smart, people are stupid" might apply in a lot of things, but in this case I think the hive mind grows in knowledge the bigger it gets.

On the second, I've noticed that the larger a fanbase grows the more rabid the fans become. Whether it's music fans or OS fans, they seem to feed off of one another's fervor.

Of course, the above sentiments are simply my take on things and I'm only one person, prone to being wrong.
