    I am assuming this is where the Snow Leopard resides...

    As for the article, definitely funny. Made me smile early in the morning.

    Lol, even with windows 7 out i'll stick with XP and Snow Leopard, windows 7 looks to clunky and useless, this time they REALLY copied apple.

    I agree... I still don't see businesses going for Windows 7. Where I work everyone loves Windows XP (best of all the choices anyways). We don't need all those flashy things Windows 7 brings to the table, as our IT would just shut them off anyways - AERO, Widgets, etc...

    Microsoft really needs to make two different OS's, one for the home users looking for all the fun, flashy features. And another for offices/businesses - More secure, less flashiness, just the basics to get the job done.

    they won't have a choice in a few years when XP is no longer supported. windows 7 seems to be the microsoft equivalent of snow leopard. just tweaking things a bit and slap on a new name. MS better discount 7 though. people will not upgrade from vista for the regular list price.

    You mean like, back in the Windows 95/NT days? I think Microsoft is trying to get away from that.

    Guess it depends how much of the kernel they monkey around with for Snow Leopard. Presumably, they could at some level make all their own apps much more Grand Central/GPGPU/parallelised/concurrent ready / whatever your favorit term for making sure that it can get some benefits from multicores, multiCPUs and GPUs.

    They are basically doing it now with the way they keep extending the Windows XP deadline as well as offering Vista.

    They should continue support for XP, drop Vista, and continue on with their Windows 7 endeavor.

    i hope that windows 7 will be more like the old XP than the vista cuz the features in vista was just to damn annoying and problematic. however i feel that windows is not creative these days. there copying apple now! windows 7 looks like a complete rip of leopard except its windows style.. ughh.. i was hoping for a completely different GUI sumtin that would surprise us all

    although i don't buy into the whole "copying apple" theory, i will say MS has a lot of trouble being creative with their gui.
    windows 7 is going to be a glossed over vista. i mean do they actually think people are that dumb not to know that? they need to go back and start over and take 10 years to do it. maybe then they will have an os that is stable, secure, and reasonably priced. oh and not 5 versions of it to do nothing but confuse and rip people off. :apple:
