The Last Days of Windows 7, Part 1

In just a few short days at the BUILD conference in California, Microsoft will finally take the wraps off Windows 8 and we’ll see exactly what they’re going to offer us for a desktop operating system over the next three years. This means that we’re in the final few days of Windows 7 being ‘top dog’, and I thought I’d take the opportunity to have a look back over the operating system.

Tomorrow I’ll look at all the new features that Windows 7 introduced and try to examine the impact they have had on the end-user experience, especially on tablet devices. Today though let’s look at what Windows 7 did for Microsoft.

The Last Days of Windows 7, Part 2

In just a few days Windows 8 will be formally unveiled by Microsoft at their BUILD conference in California, so we’re in the final few days of Windows 7 being top dog. Yesterday in part 1 of this article series I wrote about how Windows 7 had reversed Microsoft’s fortunes and only a single year after its release, had silenced all the company’s Windows critics. It was extremely quick to sell and sold many more retail copies than any other version of Windows before it. But what actual new features did Windows 7 bring to the table and how did it improve over XP and Vista?

Allot of people, including me, are keeping 7. IMO, the only thing that isn't perfect with 7 is it's looks.

I put Windows 7 on this computer brand new right out of the box-both the computer and the os. I have NEVER seen it lock up, have NEVER had to force a reboot, and have done, watched, listened to and played anything and everthing i have wanted on this machine. Zero problems! I do not care about fluff or features...I care about performance. MS got this one right...it will be hard to get me to move on.

Windows7 has been excellent and I have had zero problems with it. I had moved off Windows and to OSX when Vista came out and I had nothing but problems with it. But when Windows7 came out, I gave it a try and never looked,back. my next desktop machine will be Windows based. As you can say I have drunk the Microsoft Koolaid, and found it yummy. I looked at Linux and even Freebsd and while they are improving, I find Windows on my Lenovo Laptop to be the perfect OS for me.

I plan to run Win8 Beta in Virtual Box and if they come out with a nice 7" tablet, I will buy that. And from there we will see.

Not sure I'll be making the jump to 8 too quickly. I like 7, it works, and for me has run without issue for 2 years.It will take some big improvements now to budge me off 7.
