Windows 7 Beta: I can’t go back to Vista … I won’t

Windows 7 Ultimate

After spending the last couple years running Microsoft’s Vista OS on my traveling notebook computer and recently installing the new Windows 7 Beta, I can’t imagine ever being forced to go back to such a pitiful operating system as Vista. Perhaps it was Microsoft’s strategy that users suffer so no matter what came out next that it would be praise? I doubt it, but can’t imagine that the company that sold the world on Windows could blunder with the release of  such a lousy operating system? Now that I’m back running an acceptable OS — Windows 7 — I’m beginning to worry about the beta’s expiration — which I’ve heard is August 1, 2009. I don’t want to reinstall Vista … NO I WILL NOT reinstall Vista. Join me in making this point clear to Microsoft.

Windows 7 Beta

Dear Microsoft,

As a satisfied Windows 7 Beta tester, I am concerned that the release of Windows 7 may trail the expiration of the current Version 6.1 (Build 7000).  If users are asked to reinstall the Vista OS prior to a Windows 7 release, it will be a marketing mistake.  Personally, I will purchase a new computer before reinstalling Vista and it will be a Mac Book Pro running Apple’s OS.
