The Vista/7 argument I think just justifies the OP more. Vista, 7 and 8 for the most part share the same NT kernel Vista being 6.0, 7 being 6.1 and 8 being 6.2. In fact 7 ships with less consumer features because they took out Mail and Calendar. By the time 7 rolled around Vista was running solidly on the same hardware as 7. That isn't to say 7 was not an improvement, but it was marginal, being able to run on netbooks (albeit Starter edition though), and vast productivity improvements with the Superbar and Aero snapping, its core was still Vista. But tech writers heralded it as the 2nd coming of Windows when it wasn't that much of an improvement (that isn't to say there wasn't any improvement).
