Comment In Sweden... (Score 2, Insightful) 375

...I have a 100/100 Mbps connection with no limits at a monthly cost of $21/month. That includes up to 1 GB of complementary web hosting (albeit with a crappy url) and some other small goodies. Seeing costs the like of ~$100/month just makes me laugh, really, since us Swedes paid about $25 for 100/100 Mbps connections ten years ago.

Operating systems are UIs; they are not intended to be performance boosters. Their task is to deliver the information that you need in a timely, neat and conclusive manner. As far as I hear, Windows 7 does this better than Vista as well as (at least when it comes to the neat part) XP.

Try thinking of it in terms of a human body: we're all pretty much the same, but with some differences in component performance. It all comes down to how the body is used and maintained.

Go ahead. Make a sex joke.
