Could backfire and have a negative effect though. Might make viewing guests not want to sign up, and just look at the progress bar and wait till it gets close to the first leak. Affect user sign up in other words. Not to mention it probably wouldn't be too accurate, just based on speculation. :rolleyes:

I agree that it will be based on speculation. But I still support it.
As for it affecting user sign up, you guys can make a system that only members can only view it. You can make an extra option in User`s control panel from where we can access it.

...or, make it in such a way, you must become a member to view it, hence increasing user sign ups. Can use it as a way to increase our user base.

Nice idea, but I think Microsoft is so unpredictable, you never know how far down the line you are. If you ask me, this would just a) disapoint people and b) Make people want to only register on the forum when the bar is nearly full ie. the forum, in the long term, people would loose interest.

A progress bar based on predictions can be terribly inaccurate though.

That and it makes it seem set in stone.

We have been over this, and it won't happen.

~Lordbob

I'd have to agree with you both. Besides, 8 might be further delayed if XP gets another reprieve!

Me too; Windows 7 is already getting kinda boring because of how limited it is... (yes I said that, but that's because I push to the max)
