My 2 cents on Win7

You asked us to make everyday tasks faster and easier, to make your PC work the way you want it to, and to make it possible to do new things -Microsoft.com

So was that written about WinXP, Vista, or Windows 7? Doesn’t it sound like all Microsoft does is copy and paste? And I agree the tasks are faster, because they require better hardware, therefore it’s the hardware improving not the OS.

Windows 7 was built around your feedback, so you’ll see a lot of things you’ve asked for. -Microsoft.com

I think what most people want from Windows is a fast reliable OS, not tons of useless programs thrown together.

  • Sticky Notes
  • A Revamped Calculator
  • New Paint
  • Magnifier
  • Snipping Tool
  • Windows Power Shell
  • Windows Journal
  • Tablet PC Input
  • Math Input Panel?

Okay right off the bat, Windows Journal, what the heck! Who wants Windows Journal? Okay that’s wastd program #1. Sticky notes, sort of handy but there are already a million programs that do that. Calculator, your cool, you look good but I am never going to do my mortgage with you. Magnifier, really a waste of time. Snipping Tool is useless, and I don’t have a Tablet PC, so why would I want to be able to input. And Windows Power Shell aka renamed command prompt and changed the colors. And who wants to type in Math equations on their computer?

The taskbar is WAY to confusing, I am lost just it is mixing links with things already open, how do I know the difference? It is way to confusing and once again, useless.

Overall, stick with XP, or better yet, go Ubuntu!
