If Windows 7 Fails, Citrix (Not Linux) Wins

geeknado Re:Those days are gone (638 comments)

I'm in partial agreement with you here-- XP/someLinuxFlavor on my old machines, Vista/Ubuntu dual boot on the newest one-- but, having played with Windows 7, I think that those of us with Vista may see a "real" reason to upgrade. As has been widely reported, the beta version is pretty solid and performs well on older hardware /with/ the glitz features like Aero. Assuming this holds true for the release as well, I expect a fair percentage of those using Vista will indeed upgrade.

Not if he delivers on his promises within a reasonable window of time or can defer blame for his lack of delivery to a reticent congress. The very fact that we're talking about his prospects for re-election _10 days_ after he assumed office illustrates why it's so difficult for politicians to do anything meaningful. Yes, no one's life is magically better because Obama is now in power. This is in no way a surprise.

Yeah, you'd think that, but here in VA(and NC too, from what I understand), somehow a large quantity of ballots got damp, which prevented the optical scanners from reading them successfully. My sister, for instance, had to leave her vote in a stack next to the scanner, trusting that they'd do it later...
