I findley got 2 updates, after bitching in public. All I can say is take a look at these fourms and you will see just how staible it is. There is alot of problems. I don't mind beta testing for them but we do need their support as well. We do not want another Vista. I have spent alot of money on Microsofts os's and do want a good one. Tired of beeing treated like the plage after we buy thrir producs. Just trying to make shure we all get a good Windows 7, and that is called feed back and if they don't listen then it is time to do our bitching in public. Shure that will piss off alot of people, better to be pissed off than spend our money on another Vista. This Windows 7 will make billions in money and we don't need to wast our money on it if it is not going to be a good expeariance, that is what Windows 7 is susposed to be and it is up to all of us to make shure that is what we get. It looks like I findley got through to Microsoft and got my update to work. There was not anything wrong with it to start with, they just was not realsing updates at all. So now that has changed and that is a good thing. If we have to kick start the thing to make it work then WE WILL.
Thanks for your input, mine worked and will make shure it always does. And I have helped make os's befour and made some very good money for the company that realeased it. It was called NewDos-80 for the TRS-80 and was the best out there is it's day.
Sorry Thomas but I have to comment on this too... First of all, I agree with the fact that you did NOT get 2 updates from MS just because you bitched in public... I really hope you don't actually think that you did...
Secondly, you say that by just looking at the forum you can see how many problems Windows 7 has.. give me a break man... do you honestly believe that?? There is no way you can judge how many problems an OS has from the look of a forum... I'll even explain why just in case you don't know why I'd say that..
Think about it for a minute... how many of these posts are from people who have never Beta tested something before in their lives (they just downloaded it because it was available and they wanted to have the latest thing, not acknowleding the fact that is is BETA software and as such there will be problems/bugs).... ALOT.. ok so take those ones out.. now we're down to about half the total amount of posts that describe "Windows 7 problems"..
Ok next.. take out the posts that are repeat posts.. (even if they are worded slightly different, the're still repeat posts).. So now we're down to about a quarter of the total posts... Finally take out the posts that have nothing to do with any actual "problems" but that deal more with 'broken user'... After all that your left with about a handful of actual "problems"- and I mean ligitemate problems that are severe enough to hurt the OS overall... I just really think your being unfair to Win 7.. Just because a couple things won't work for you in it.. doesn't mean it should be labeled as a sh!tty OS before it's even out of BETA stages....
As far as getting a good Windows 7.. Well in my opinion we already have a good Windows 7..
And Build 7022 is further proof of that.. I can say that from experience as I have it running on my main PC and guess what.. it installed quicker than build 7000 and works quite a bit better.. so I don't see how you think Windows 7 is crap.. I really don't.. I admit it is frustrating when something works well for so many others and not you... but that isn't reason enough to start bashing MS and saying Windows 7 is junk.. common.. really..
Also, if you don't want to waste your money buying 7 than that's your decision obviously.. but I really don't think you can speak for everyone on that... and yet again what is so wrong with Vista? Do you hate it simply because the general opinion on it is it's crap or because it actually doesn't work good for you? I still use Vista and will continue to use Vista after I've bought a copy of Windows 7 when it's in final form.. Yes, Vista was crappy when it was first released but it is a solid good working OS now.. Same thing with XP.. it was crappy when it first came out but now is a near flawless OS that works well with anything.. But on the flip side, it's old, outdated and very open to malware and things of that nature whereas Vista and Win 7 are not as open to stuff like that..
So all in all I think Microsoft is doing it's job and quite nicely at this point in time.. they have listened to many of the general public's suggestions and input for Win 7 and have made some changes based on this but of course their not going to do everything that the public asks for.. that in my opinion would just be a poor way to create an OS..
Long story short.. if you don't like Windows 7 that much than don't buy it...
