Readers Talk Back on Windows 7, Twitter
Tony Kontzer joined the geek snarkfest around Microsoft's marketing of Windows 7, but readers say that the product itself is what matters.
JohnJ writes, "The Windows 7 Party Video is irrelevant. Geeks enjoy making fun of it, but the general public will never see it...[I] anticipate that Windows 7 will be a very good product."
Hank says, "I've had it for 7 weeks. I like it."
On the other hand, Onion Head predicts that PCs will go the way of the dinosaur: "My guess is many will opt for the iPhone or such and the Personal Computer (ie desktop/notebook) will disappear in 5 years."
Elsewhere, Twitter user @danielkennedy74, who was quoted in one of Tony's Twitter-as-zeitgeist posts, says, "It is scary to have your tweets quoted in a regular news publication." Don't be scared, that's just the way we journalism now.
