Eh, all I know is that MS seems locked in to the 1 bad OS release followed by 1 good OS release cycle.

By that logic:

98 - Good
ME - OH God, is there a word that describes how bad that was?
XP - Good
Vista - WTF? NO!
7 - Good
8- Going to be bad? Most freakin' likely.

(No, I'm not counting the Enterprise centered NT OSs before they merged with consumer level.)
It goes back even further than that.

1 - not sure, haven't heard much about it
2 - god-awful OS
3 series - very solid OS for its day, and loved by pretty much anyone who used it
95 - Awful. Brand new UI was the only thing good about it. Lots of people stuck with 3.1 or 3.11 until 98 came out.

The reason it works out this way is because every other release they try to cram too much new crap in and make a mess. Then, on the in-between release they just focus on fixing all the shit they screwed up on the previous one. I'd tell you to guess which one 8 will be, but you already have and it's too painfully obvious.
