    I expect that they will end up with that either way. Windows 7 was the most liked OS right from the start, moreso than any other MS OS in the past.

    Yes, the current 320 pixel, remainder of screen snap is completely useless.


    At the end of the day, I guess I don't really care at all what the percentage of use of the OS is. Either you like it or you don't. Neither the people who do like it, or the people who do not, are right or wrong.

    Pretty much, you just to point A to point B in modern fashion, if that's quicker than before, awesome. If not, oh well.

    Many of the world's largest organisations are only now migrating to Windows 7 from Windows XP, they will remain with Windows 7 for years to come and Microsoft will support Windows 7 for years to come. Microsoft extended support for Windows XP far longer than they wanted to, because of the corporate backlash when they announced that support would be stopped.

    People would whine if MS threw in an overseas trip to Paris and 3 cartons of beer, it's just the nature of the beast.

    If Apple would have bought this out and charged an extra $200 the world would be in love with it.

    You really seem to be obsessed sometimes with what Apple would have done. I'm not an Apple fan or Apple owner, but when they do something, it seems like the fans really seem to enjoy the way it's been done. It's just hard for Windows users to understand that type of success.

    And the majority of Apple users aren't clamoring to come back to Windows. The primary exception is Windows people who gave Apple a shot. But even then, I have many coworkers, and fellow IT counterparts who have moved over to OSX and they don't have regrets and encourage me often to really give the opposition a shot. I trust their opinions and am almost shocked at how satisfied they are with their iPads and MacBook Pros.

    apple releases something that isn't that revolutionary or better than other products, yet everyone is crapping their pants. It's an illusion that it's apple and that's that and it must be had.

    I don't get why people to go the mac, it's gross quite frankly. The thing I KNOW for a fact would piss me off is the bland silver chrome interface. Can't change it without Terminal and skills. That's not a Personal Computer, that's steve jobs' computer. Then there is the disgusting leather and skeuomorphic design.... I live in the modern age with a modern OS, not one that I would give my grandparents who have never used a computer before other than a calculator...

    Then there are the apps and lack thereof. And the lack of gaming thereof.

    And don't get me started on the cost!

    As one can see from here, he is obsessed with Apple and keeps buying their products no matter how crappy he thinks they are: BillWindows's comments on CNET. Makes you wonder.

    I know plenty of people who use a Windows desktop, but as are happy as pigs in muck with their Apple/Android devices. But I guess they are all wrong.

    It's good to see you're taking a healthy interest in my adventures on Cnet Ray.

    if you look at one of the comments I made, its about the biggest Apple lover on Cnet, ZeroRandy. This guy absolutely despises anything Microsoft and guess what? He's just gone out and bought a WINDOWS 8 convertible, game over Ray. If this guy crossed the line there will be plenty more to follow.

    Not only that, he's actually HIGHLY recommending it, that's like the Pope quitting his post, oh yeah.
