The Windows 7 honeymoon is over

ZDNet: The Windows 7 honeymoon is over

“Thanks to the power of hindsight, it’s now quite apparent that Windows Vista was hated by a large proportion of the people who came into contact with the beleaguered OS. In contrast, Windows 7 has been receiving almost endless praise (even before anyone outside of Microsoft was even running the OS). But lately I’ve noticed the tide turning, and the shine is beginning to tarnish on Windows 7’s previously immaculate halo?

Over the past few weeks, Windows 7 has been hit by several problems, which while being high profile, may or may not only exist in the minds of the users. There’s been the battery issue, where users claim that Windows 7 is causing battery deterioration, and on top of that claims that a reliability patch released by Microsoft is actually causing problems. According to Microsoft, the battery issue is a non-issue and Windows 7 is working normally, and the company is investigating claims that the reliability patch is causing BSoDs and startup/shutdown issues.”
