Tech Talk: Windows 7

Finally less Microsoft headaches!
Without getting into the “Mac vs. PC” war (I’ve been a PC user for 20+ years) – I wanted to share my positive experience with the latest version of the Microsoft desktop operating system: Windows 7.
For anyone still on the Windows platform – and not using Windows 7 – I’d personally recommend upgrading as soon as possible. Why?
- Stable. I’ve suffered the least amount of “down time” trying to deal with headaches associated with a horrible operating system (practically zero). It just allows me to do my work (for now at least).
- Simpler. Even complete novices will find the interface improved over any other Windows version.
- Leaner, faster. The boot time is quick, and the OS handles memory much better.
Even though I installed the program on a fresh hard drive – I heard that even the upgrade process from previous Windows versions was fairly smooth as well. While getting a new PC (with Win 7) would be your best bet for noticeably improved computing – you may still want to consider an upgrade if funds are tight.
Anyone else enjoying Windows 7 as much as I am?
