Windows 7 'upgrade' doesn't mark XP spot

filey

there you go

obviously, upgrading vista to windows 7 will be easy as windows 7 IS vista, more like a service pack than a new OS

Question..

Can we expect customer service levels to plummet further (if this is possible) ?

The reason is all the hard cost-cutting, designed mostly to give AMD a hard time

@piro

yes, i know its a limitation of 32 bit addressing

maybe mainstream windows needs to go 64bit, and maybe virtualisation for older apps?

We have all heard about the need to recycle...

It feels too soon, too much like a recycled vista. Seems likely i will be using XP for a few more years

Questions...

Will windows 7 be able to do anything regarding the 3GB ram limit?

it was silly the mainstream vista couldnt use any more ram than xp, usually when i buy a new machine it has loads more ram than my last. My current machine came with 2gb and its near 4 years old.

Is that a spider? I blooming hate those things...

further

more reading of the ebay listing shows me that it is indeed the F700 offered in the description, the F700V written on the box in the picture, but not in the description, thought to counteract this he states:

ITEM IS IN GOOD CONDITION

ITEM IS IN ORIGINAL BOX

Next Windows name unveiled: Windows 7

filey
Gates Horns

i'm not buying it

Why won't they call it Windows Vista 2.0? or Mojave?

we all know its just the vista codebase with knobs on, mostly just a search and replace name change.

Look out for features such as 3gb memory limit (that limit is a joke now, imagine 5 years time!)

Offers full-length shows?

Maybe it does, but whats the point for us UK users

any ep of any show from CBS's youtube channel is greeted with:

This video is not available in your country.
