Saturday 4 June 2011.

For a while, it’s seemed as if Microsoft OSes have been a case of "once more, with feeling".

Windows XP was fine. Windows Vista was, um, well, somewhat less than impressive. Windows 7 was what Vista should have been. In short, the last three versions of Windows have been functional but rather mundane operating systems that have tweaked and retweaked but not exactly set the world ablaze...
