Welcome to breaking Windows. Where we try to do our best to provide alternatives to Windows as an Operating System and where I will wax poetic about all things geeky in nature.

Now with that out of the way, it's time to get down to business:

Windows 7 will be a major flop, as bad or worse than Vista

read this

With some reports claiming as many as 6-7 different versions of the O.$. Micro$oft is hoping to cash in on the average consumers misunderstanding of the various versions. It seems that the starter edition (the lowest version on the totem pole) will only allow a user to open 3 applications simultaneously. This is RIDICULOUS!!! What reason could this possible serve, other than to sell laptops for a lower price that advertise that they use Windows 7. When the consumer gets home and tries to open four applications, they will get a message from Micro$soft telling them they need to upgrade their operating system. I just do not know how this can be legal. This is the greatest scam ever. I'll bet the upgrades won't be cheap either.

Just when I think that Micro$oft is starting to learn their lesson, that charging insane amounts of money for inferior products was starting to take it's toll, they create a mess out of what could have been a usable operating system. Leave it to Micro$oft to ruin a product with terrible marketing! For years their products were terrible (save their Office suite) and they forced their way onto 93% of the worlds computers. They have used every dirty trick in the book (and when they ran out of dirty tricks, they created a new book of even dirtier tricks) to strong arm their way into our lives and onto our machines. It is time that the consumers speak up and take back what is rightfully theirs!

Viva la Open Source!!!
