Isn't the aim of making new versions of Windows to make each one the best?


But yeah, I do think it will be the best (Second to Longhorn, but it was never released so it doesn't count).



EDIT: Just saw it was your first post! Welcome to BetaArchive mystyleonfire.

If Windows 7 will be the best of all then Microsoft won't think about updating their Windows to Windows 8. I heard that they will start working on Windows 8 after Windows 7.

It is far, far too early to be making judgements like this...

Yes, I believe Windows 8 will be a completely new OS (then again, 7 was supposed to be), refreshed completely (getting rid of all this bumf-code - the codebase for Windows 7, as we know, dates right back to 1987 or so). And that will be the last version before the Midori OS takes over.

The NT line of Windows (as we all know the current line of Windows is based on NT) Dates back to 1993, Windows NT 3.1, you are thinking of the DOS line of Windows, which ended with Windows Me.
Midori is a reasearch project being conducted by Microsoft, never, have they even hinted that it will be sold commercially.
Here is an article you might want to read about Midori.

Note that I said Midori takes over from, not updates, joins the family of, or merges with Windows. Anyway, whatever Midori is, I have read in countless reports that no new Windows versions will be released after 8 or 9. Whether Midori takes over or not, whether Windows-based applications will continue to be supported or not, the Windows name dies. Dead*.

Another point:

S. Sinofsky used to cencentrate on one aspect of Office with every release... For example, Office 2k3 was about some new tools like InfoPath. Office 2k7, however was about improving the Interface (obviously). That doesn't mean that they didn't add any functionality though.

My guess would be that it's going to be similar with the Next Windows releases.

Microsoft has always been behind of Apple (in technology, not in market). The release of Vista sure made an impact to the Microsoft's market, as Microsoft decides to stop supporting XP, users might migrate to free alternatives such as linux. To prevent this situation from happening, Microsoft has to release a better operating system to rescue itself. And I think Windows 7 is the answer. However, I won't call it the best ever as they sure could have added more innovative features into it. Besides, backward compatibilities and stability are still unknown, I won't be making any judgments this early.

I'm sure it won't. The best Windows will be Server 2008 R2, just like the best one now is Server 2008.

Have they? Personally, I don't think OSX is technically better than the NT kernel anyway, but since you say Microsoft have *always* been behind Apple... What about OS9? At the time, it was competing with Windows 2000, and I think even Apple would admit in hindsight that they were behind MS.

As for Midori, it is currently a Research Project. It's intended to determine whether a new OS based on the .NET system could really be used in the same scenarios as Windows. However, Research Projects, once complete, can go on to become a commercial project. While the name may change, and some features may be dropped or changed, the core will almost certainly be retained, and any commercial project following the same idea as Midori, will almost certainly use Midori as it's starting point.

So while we may never see Midori as such, we'll probably see a commercial version of Midori some day.

Creating an OS that can match the Windows NT Kernel is going to take some time. And when it comes, no doubt Microsoft will use the opportunity to completely overhaul other areas of the architecture.

An OS of a completely different nature and architecture can't follow up a more 'traditional' system. If I had a company that sold a DOS-clone, that then ditched that line and replaced it with a UNIX-clone, would not be producing a follow-up. It would be producing a replacement.

And as I have said, I'm not considering it Windows-anything; I'm considering it (like I have just said) as a potential replacement or even an alternate option, to be offered alongside Windows.

Please note: all words are important in a sentence - read and take note of all of them, and you can completely and fully understand the meaning of anything anyone says to you.

I think XP was the best up to now. Good combination between home and work.

I don't know about 7, it is too early for that.

Based on the pre-beta, I think this will easily be the best OS that Microsoft has put out. Driver compatibility is amazing OOTB, and the interface is cleaner and more optimized. This is really what Vista was trying to be.

I think that Windows 7 will be the best OS to date assuming Microsoft fixes all of the problems and customer complaints found in Vista.

i think we just have to wait for the final release of windows 7 to make that judgement.. even when that happens, there are many things to consider if we want to call it as the best OS of all..

I think it's too premature to think about "The best Windows Edition"
See it this way. What if suddenly Microsoft decides that the new bar is not as good as it must, and they morph / remove it. (The same way that happened with Windows Chicago), so we must evaluate it into a present day. Enjoy it now, and after that, when we start seeing where Windows 7 is going to we might start speculating if we'll migrate. I think at least we must wait for the Betas so that we can see if it's worth it.

I think Windows 7 is not the best.

Microsoft has promised us many great things which eventually bit the dust. Watching from the sidelines, every Windows release has seemed to be less and less exciting.

I think that it will be better then Vista, the virtual folders are a great feature, So I'm quite happy running 6801 as my main, but MS has to work on the superbar, Right now it sucks

I really like build 6801, it's a pre-beta build so the COM Surrogate bug is likely going to be fixed.

On Topic: I think Windows 7 will be the best Windows version until Windows 8 (or whatever it's going to be named) is released.

Windows XP is nearly perfect, but i think it is the best one
Windows Vista sucked me, because of the Hardware Settings and it is so slow
I get the Windows 7 Build 6801 x64 and was surprised, it's faster than Vista and as a Alpha Version this results are very good
