    Re: Windows 8

    I don't see the need to upgrade my desktop from Windows 7.

    As for Vista, XP had its fair share of issues at launch too, but Microsoft updated it to the point where it became the standard OS for a decade. I think Windows 7 is what Microsoft originally visioned for Vista. Instead, they got there by releasing a new version instead of patching it.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    That's a fair point, but I still think there is something to be said about running an OS like Vista on a laptop with only 256mb RAM. Thing seemed to have a mind of it's own when it came to loading up/shutting down certain programs, and the machine simply may not have been strong enough to properly represent what Vista was capable of.
