I might pass Vista and wait for XP SP3 and Vienna now ;) Although it's not a crime to take your time for an OS, I'd say.
I much rather have to wait a long period of time and get something good, rather than something "half baked" (Dutch expression, dunno if that's used in English, too) :P

I wonder if this "Vienna" OS is going to be like a disaster like Vista (No offense, I think Vista sucks). Probably more bloatware and unnecessary components. We'll wait and see, but I'm not going to get my hopes up for this new operating system.

And maybe by this time IE8 will be out for this one too, which I could care less.

I heard that Vienna was renamed to "Windows 7" and then to "Translucency". Centro has been officially renamed to "Windows Essential Business Server"

[quote]Tell me about it. At my school, teachers are always requesting for this software, copyright © 1998, to be deployed on every computer on the network. We have a very strict active directory system where one teacher on the campus gets admin rights, but most teachers and all students don't. Our problem is that when the software is running, it's trying to swap out new XP/2000 dlls with ancient win95 ones... but they can't because they are running without admin rights. Anyways, it can be a mess without proper backward compatibility.[/quot]

Yeh m8 u have hit the nail on the head there... In my opinion i think vista has the fullest microsoft capabilities have from windows 3.1 upto vienna pppffffff thats a laugh aint it, why dont microsoft make 1 windows OS capable of gaming, downloading, using a server instead of all these versions that need different specs... yano why dont the make a 30gig os capable of different specs that way it will stop alot of s***... but i guess bill gates is too stupid to use the idea and i bet you any money bill gates uses an optimized, modified windows OS either hacked cut down with nlite/vlite etc. because he cant stand his own OS... yet again i do think college/university an school's have the best stable versions of an OS because they boot up within 30 seconds, then takes less than 10 secs to logon then i'd say 45 or more seconds to load in properly bt w they have too much old software on the systems..

Because being all things to all people means you have to make compromises. Besides, the bulk of the money Windows brings in are desktop workstation installs and then servers, THEN gamers. So don't count on any changes.

In my oppionion, vienna is going to pick up were microsoft screwed up in vista. Vista seemed to primarily take a dive and is still going down the drain since its release, most people are sticking with xp. I think vienna is going to be microsofts attempt to "fix" it.

From what I have read it seems that Windows 7 (Vienna) will have many of features that are featured in Vista like the GUI but all the securtity cr*p like UAC will be removed. Why they just didnt overhaul XP in the first place I don't know they could have just pimped up the GUI and made it DirectX10 compatable (as well as other tweaks) and theres their new OS without upsetting every man and his **** dog!!!

Me personally im not holding my breathe with Windows 7 since MS made such a cock up with Vista but having said that though here's hoping kinda thing :D

Actually, Win7 will have a brand new kernel.
