    Windows 7 is really just Vista SP3. Even Microsoft somewhat acknowledges that. It is just version 6.1 of Windows while Vista SP0-SP2 is version 6.0.

    Except you're missing a few OS's...

    Windows 95 wasn't bad.
    Windows 98 had problems, fixed with Second Edition.
    Windows 2000 was GREAT -- I don't know why you think it was a joke...
    Windows ME was horrendous.
    Windows XP was HORRIBLE at the start, but improved with patches.
    Windows Vista wasn't THAT bad, it had it's issues, but was mostly just a lot of negative hype.
    Windows 7 is what Windows Vista should have been.

    When i was thinking about windows 2000 being a joke for an OS i was thinking about the ME edition. I really did not try out win 2000. I tried Win 98 SE, then tried ME then went back to 98 SE till Win Xp came out.

    Yep... 2K was a stable OS however with HORRIBLE P'n'P support (like freezes etc.).
    XP was polished in that direction but full of bugs (anyway - I have had the OS updated every day so for me it wasn't like a hell-hole full of bugs - they were squashed every update, but I've had my fight with blaster at the beginning ;) )

    Windows 7 is listed as and returns 6.1 for compatibility reasons. When programs that were written for Vista are run on 7, and they look for the Windows version number, they see version 6 and everything works as it was supposed to.

    Thats only partially true. Just making the version 6.x does not mean that apps & drivers will automatically work. There still has to be required OS components underneath it all to provide that compatibility.

    In this case, the core of W7 is still the Vista core components & kernel and THATS what is providing the compatibility.

    Keeping the version as 6.x may avoid some app & driver issues depending on how they validate OS versions, but make no mistake this IS essentially Vista SP3 or perhaps more apporpriately it should have been called Vista SE (much like W98-SE or Windows 98 - Second Edition).

    Don't let the pretty eye candy (as much as I also like it) fool you, it is still Vista under the hood...:D

    Really makes me laugh when I see people bash Vista, then almost in the same sentence say how much they like W7. I think it just shows their stupidity for not understanding that W7 IS still Vista !

    Although it did get ALLOT recoded and cleaned up and does run 10x better than Vista ever has on any PC in my home. It's just a much nicer OS all around and as most comparison charts show Windows 7 blows Vista out of the water time and time again.

    if you want vista then use vista.

    if you want win7 than vista then use win7.

    ps. to tell you the truth win 7 was made not from scratch but from vista.
    but its not right to call people stupid who cant understand that.
    end of discussion.

    this thread should be close now.

    I will suggest to keep on Vista SP2, I didn't mean Vista is better then Win7, just because software/driver are still not ready. for example, my Intel dual port giga adapter have problem in Win7, but not in Vista, other minor bug, such as the gadget Calender will show wrong "Week" when using specific locate.

    it don't need to be rush in, just wait for more support for win7.

    p.s. Even XP mode are still in RC.

    No one remember all the hassle and all those crashes with windows 3/95/98 anymore? Thank god they're gone!

    Vista does have a bad reputation, not easily washed away, but SP1 made it stable, and SP2 even more so. Vista IS better than its reputation.

    Agreed. Lot's of people just stayed on their first impression when it came out and haven't seen it's evolution.

    Vista RTM is unfinished Longhorn and at the same time Win7 pre-alpha 'because Vista: 6.0 ; Win7: 6.1
