The final Vista Ultimate extra? Windows 7

I am almost certain they won’t but Microsoft should seriously consider how they will make Windows 7 available to the public when it is released next year.  Ever since Vista came out there has been no end to the complaining that there were not enough extras available for Vista Ultimate.  They say it was not worth the cost and I agree.

So here is what Microsoft should do.  Eliminate all versions of Windows 7 but one.  No ultimate edition, or basic edition, or primary basic edition, or grandma’s pro edition.  Just one.  Very simple.  Windows 7.

Then, considering that almost all of the units sold come from new computers, give a free upgrade to Windows 7 to all who purchased Vista Ultimate sort of as a final Vista Ultimate extra.

Finally, sell the Windows 7 upgrade for $99 and the full package for $189 at retail shops.

This is so obvious that a child could figure it out.  Which is why I have no hope that Microsoft will see it.

  1. That's true, Microsoft use to release a lot of different version of the same software, making hard to choose one.
    But do the same again, with more version than Vista if possible.

  12. Unlike its predecessor, Windows 7 is intended to be an incremental upgrade from Vista, with the goal of being fully compatible with device drivers, applications, and hardware with which Windows Vista is already compatible.

  14. Recently, we suggested that a cut-down version of Windows 7 should be made available free to owners of Windows Vista. OK, so that's not going to happen, much as we think it should.

  15. Windows Vista is among a line of operating systems developed by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, Tablet PCs, and media center PCs. Prior to its announcement on July 22, 2005, Windows Vista was known by its codename "Longhorn."

  16. In all, Microsoft's senior program manager, Chaitanya Sareen, outlined 36 changes in the Windows 7 release candidate. Minor changes will give users more control than what they had in the Windows 7 beta. However, Paul Thurrott dismissed these "laundry list of tiny changes, much like the '300+ New Features!' lists that Apple makes every time it ships a new version of Mac OS X."

  17. A feature spotted in beta versions of Windows 7 could be an indicator that Microsoft will allow users of the operating system to switch off Internet Explorer.

    One of the features in build 7048 of Windows 7 includes a "Windows Features" dialog box, which allows certain applications and software functions to be switched off. One of those is Internet Explorer 8, and Media Player can also be disabled.

    Will Windows 7 arrive this year or next? Last week's "accidental" Windows 7 Release Candidate download page, dated May 2009, and repeated leaks to the Web of Windows 7 builds are strong indications that we'll see the next manifestation of Windows in about two months.

  25. Rosen proposes that ultimately the passionate will be most involved and by having <a href="http://www.mustuniversity.com/Schools-Majors/Social-Services.html">online social service degree</a> an open system with widely available tools, users will police it. I think CBS Eyemobile and Apple offer examples of how the users are policing content.

    Originally, a version of Windows codenamed Blackcomb was planned as the successor to Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. Major features were planned for Blackcomb, including an emphasis on searching and querying data and an advanced storage system named WinFS to enable such scenarios. However, an interim, minor release, codenamed "Longhorn" was announced for 2003, delaying the development of Blackcomb.By the middle of 2003, however, Longhorn had acquired some of the features originally intended for Blackcomb. After three major viruses exploited flaws in Windows operating systems within a short time period in 2003, Microsoft changed its development priorities, putting some of Longhorn's major development work on hold while developing new service packs for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

    I agree with you, different editions just confuses the customer and limiting the power of any OS is just not right. For my desktop, I have started to love Linux because I can do anything I want in it and for free.

  52. The Touch Diamond is the first new HTC piece to get teed up for Sprint, but the Touch Pro is hot on its heels a few weeks later and with a QWERTY keyboard, it's hard to ignore. Question is, is it worth the extra wait? Well, ease your troubled mind for just a second and take a gander at our gallery on Engadget Mobile we're not saying it's going to make your decision any easier, we're just saying everyone likes pretty pictures.
