    Hi,

    Why 7.9 is the highest score possible for Windows Experience Index?

    Why not 4.2 or 185.3 or (3.14^2)/Sqr(2) or more simply 10?


    Any idea?




    PS: Pehaps M$ engineers have only eight fingers....:cool:

    7 times 9 equals 63. 6 plus 3 equals 9. 9 is 1 plus 8, meaning 18.

    So its a hidden 18, three sixes.

    Thats what i would think.

    So 7.9 hides a hidden 18, 3 sixes, you know what i mean, lol.

    Some of you may think its bunk, but ms like most big companies play around with these numbers. Things hidden in plain site, lol.

    Maybe since it is Win 7 so they maxed out at 7.9 then when they release Win 8 they maxed out at 8.9.. and so on... :p

    The designers probably took bets on how many forum threads they could spark by setting it at 7.9 instead of something more logical. ;)

    Actually vista had maximum 5.9 and with modding the maximum was 9.9 if i remember correctly
    Win7 has maximum 7.9 and with modding its possible to get 11 in screenshots

    There is one thing even worse: if you play it forward, Vista gets installed...

    Just for fun:

    It remind me of a mathematical question that was posed to me once that I have yet find and answer for:

    3 men go into a hotel to rent a room for one night. The room cost $30.00 per night. So, they split the bill which costs them $10.00 each.

    They go up to their room and they all agree the room is not worth $30.00 so one of them call the manager and complain about the condition of the room noting it is not worth $30.00. The manager agrees and tells them he will send the bellboy up there with a partial refund.

    The manager gives the bellboy $5.00 and tells him to take it to the 3 men. The bellboy, on his way to the room, wonders how he is going to split $5.00 amongst 3 people. So the bellboy decides he is going to pocket $2.00 and just give them $1.00 a piece.

    After receiving the $1.00 refund per person, the 3 men are somewhat satisfied as they only paid $9.00 a piece for the room.

    BUT WAIT:
    If each person only paid $9.00, that equals $27.00. Then add the $2.00 the bellboy kept and that totals $29.00. They initially paid $30.00, what happened to the missing $1.00???????

    Actually the guys were to pay $25 but after the bellboy decided to take "his share" of the returned $5, the actual payment ended up being $28. So 28 + 2= 30. No missing dollar:D

    the men only paid $25 for the room ($30 - $5 refund), so the ended up paying the bell boys tip between them ($2)

    But then IF he returned 1 dollar to each of the 3 men (3 dollars), then :
    3x10 - 3x1 = 27 +2 in the bellboys pocket = 29

    Hah... it seems I need a coffee break ;)
