@CharlieTuba: It's called Windows 7 because it's supposed to be the version number of the operating system (Windows 95/98/NT was version 4, Win XP was version 5, Win Vista was version 6). But if you look closely, the actual version number for Windows 7 is 6.1, which lends credence to the suggestion that Win 7 is meant to be Vista with all the bugs ironed out.
We maintain 25-yr old applications (i.e. softwares) that run on IBM mainframes for a premium card company...
If Dogbert were to come to know this I wonder what would he attack us with...a nuclear missile?
BTW, agreed that IE6 is poor but XP is now a pretty good OS since it has got such a long period to gestate. Wonder what pissed Scott to go against it...
P.S. - Posting this using Ubuntu 10.04 from a dual-boot laptop with Vista (which I log in to around twice a month :P)
Actually I think W7 is the current and less buggy interim version of vista that was "rebranded" to avoid all the "bad publicity" of vista. But they also get to take more of your money.
Its funny that the only thing I like out of MS is their hardware, since they claim to be a software company. (To be fair, I like Apple's software more than their hardware, though they claim to be a hardware company).
