Windows 7 Better than Vista
I wrote a two-part series arguing that Windows 7, still in beta, is already better than Vista. Microsoft apparently agrees, letting slip that Windows 7 runs many apps
that Vista chokes on.
I always felt that Windows 7 needed a whole new kernel. Yet even with the old Vista kernel, it's far more compatible and way faster. I guess the problem is with the millions of lines of code that surround the kernel, not the core itself.
Of course, I could be wrong, and the production version of Windows 7 may well disappoint. Let's hope not!
