Windows 7 is out

Big news from Microsoft today, Windows 7 is officially launched today.

Similar to the very complicated editions used in Windows Vista almost 3 years ago, Microsoft Windows 7 is going to have Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Home Basic, Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Enterprise, and the most powerful Windows 7 Ultimate. On top of those, there are 32-bit and 64-bit versions to choose from. In comparison, life is very easy with Mac OS X Snow Leopard. It runs on Macs with Intel CPU, and there's no so many different editions, nor the different packages for 32-bit or 64-bit OS.

The price of Windows 7 is not cheap. Starting at $199.99 (USD) for the most basic Windows 7 Starter to the very expensive $319.99 (USD) for the Windows 7 Ultimate. Just for the record, the Windows Vista Ultimate was priced at $399.99 (USD) initially. Our friend Don has a copy of Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate.

Without a doubt, there would be a number of Apple bashers defending Microsoft. They claim that Apple tax Mac users US$129 every year, which was clearly untrue, and the latest Mac OS X Snow Leopard was only $29 (USD). Some of them also argue that new version of Mac OS X Snow Leopard should only be released as Service Pack, however they praise Microsoft's every single improvement into Windows. Allow me to give you an example, Paul Thurrott and Leo Laporte praised the use of graphic processor (GPU) on Windows 7, whereas the underneath improvement and increased usage of GPU on Mac OS X Snow Leopard should only be a 'Service Pack'.

Microsoft Australia is also known for over taxing Australians.

Again using the improper juxtaposition of $399.99 and "Don has Vista Ultimate". How many times do I have to tell you my copy was free?

Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate had a price tag of US$399.99, and you have a legit copy of Windows Vista Ultimate. Which part did I say wrong?
Posted by Antony on 23 October 2009 11:18 AM.
The part you said wrong was implying that I spent $399.99 on Vista Ultimate.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 24 October 2009 2:47 AM.
Except I did not say that. Hence I said nothing wrong.
Posted by Antony on 24 October 2009 1:04 PM.
You implied that; that's just as good.

The Windows Vista Ultimate cost US$399.99, to make the conversation easier, I believe we can call it US$400, was true.
You have a legit copy of Windows Vista Ultimate, which was also true.
I only stated the facts.
Posted by Antony on 24 October 2009 1:52 PM.
And implied that I spent $400 on Vista - that's pretty much undeniable.

Firstly, all I said were correct.
Secondly, I believe we can agree that we shouldn't expect someone who can't speak English is able to insinuate anything.

You speak English, everybody (but you) knows that.

Lets see how it goes for Microsoft? I hope it will be better than Windows vista.
