    good post

    Just because thousands of people use Windows (which usually isn't by "choice" but because their $500 PC came bundled with it), doesn't mean they know what they're doing

    sure, there are gonna be a handful of IT geeks who'll know what's going on,but your average user will either under or overbuy the product


    I forsee mass confusion
    and a few new Mac users because of it

    So because one lab has a few clueless people it translates into the majority of America being clueless?

    half of the people that have computers no little more what to do with it than go online, check email and play solitaire

    people take their PC's to CompUsa / BestBuy / etc.. to get some pretty basic tasks performed. i bet alot of people don't even know what 'msconfig' is or does and certainly not why

    When it comes to a computer, a majority of America can write a paper, burn/rip cds, and surf the net. Very few(relatively) can use Excel to a descent extent and know PowerPoint enough to make it look good.
    Ask an American what C++ is?-Most have no clue.

  7. Actually, there are going to be 8 versions. 2 of them are for Europe only with WMP stripped out.

    MS is going to confuse people too much. I can understand the value of multiple versions, but they have too many. Yet people will still buy Vista...

    didn't we have this same discussion like a month ago?

    I gurantee Bill Gates is taking care of Bill Gates with 6 versions of Vista that much is a given.
