Windows "A senior Samsung Electronics executive said Friday the launch of Windows 8 has failed to bolster demand for PCs and he does not expect the PC industry to rebound soon." Of course, Samsung and other OEMs could've, you know, built better computers. Just a suggestion.

recall the Javascript wars of the late 2000s. how many versions of office mostly changed file formats and added corner features. people say win7 and win8 re faster than their predecessors. that wasn't true of previous windows releases that were successively noticeably slower.

I think it is easy to make bold statements. I think there has been a big architecture change in recent years and some change in thinking.

I think Vista being late was because they re-wrote and mvoed a lot of stuff, which paved the way to improvements in 7 & 8.

Also Windows XP just doesn't run well on modern hardware even with specifications as good as my machine (I have a partition for .NET 1.1 dev). It just doesn't know how to take advantage of the hardware.
