That's a good description of the progression of the windows family up until now. Win95>98>2000>XP. Just toss in too many useless features, too many steps to do something, clutter the screen with 50,000,000,000 icons and up the system requirements and you've got a new version of windows!BornAgainMac said:...Heck, they can just change XP with some color tweaks and repackage it with a new version of Media Player, add some library changes and sell it. Works with up to 80% of all the Windows XP software titles. It would be able to ship by the end of 2006.
But it didn't take Apple 6 years to make OS 9...stoid said:Certainly confirms that as expected Longhorn is going to wind up being little more than a rehashing of Windows XP. Figures. Apple went through it with OS 8 and 9, so I suppose that MS is allowed similar re-hashings in in XP and now Longhorn.
