True, W7 is much better than XP or Vista. Whenever I work with W7, I can't help but feeling there was a laundry list of things to finish off, complete, tweak. Funny that as an OSX users as well, I found it easier and more familiar to work with than previous Windows versions ;)

It wasn't until after I saw W8 that I realized W7 would never be completed. They were off on something else, and didn't intend to tweak some of the file menus and general flow of the GUI. To this day, I think they erred in not sticking to the general W7 concept and layout. But it will be interesting to see what the verdict is when consumers start buying the first batches of W8 machines.
