I've got it running in an ancient 2004 laptop. It's slow ad crap but that's the computer! Its a nice idea, but I still find myself doing things in desktop mode because u don't do multi touch on that PC. It has beautiful design and I wish I had something more modern to put it on. It will be interesting to see how well the market responds. Its very interesting that's for sure!

Having used to work for MSoft whilst developing Vista, I can safely say 8 will be their best OS yet.

ME - crap

XP - good

Vista - crap

Windows 95 was a decent OS, it wasn't totally crap.

Also, you missed 2000, which was actually a really good release. (No Windows ME and Windows 2000 are not the same thing. Windows ME was released after 2000.)

I guess it's a stretch to say 95 was crap. It was definitely sandwiched between two better OSs though. I don't really consider 2000 or NT in the regular progression line as they were much different and eventually turned into MSs server OSs.

i'd rearrange your list to say

95: good

98: poo

2000: ok

ME: fuging horrible

xp: probably the best (ram and dx limitations aside)

vista: total poo

7: not bad at all

still follows the pattern

windows 3 wasn't bad, but i definitely preferred dos. i never used windows 3.1 except to play solitaire. too much of a resource hog in the 386 days
