Windows 7: Windows 7 Shapes Up as Microsoft’s Best OS Yet

Windows 7 Shapes Up as Microsoft’s Best OS Yet

Good news, everyone! If you’ve been stuck in a time loop using Windows XP, which is nearing eight years old, or Windows Vista, which is just annoying, you can finally break free: Windows 7 is almost here. Microsoft delivers a slickly designed, vastly improved OS that will warp you to the world of today. This upgrade is big, and it’s hugely recommended for Microsoft users.

When we say big, we mean really BIG — so we’re not going to bombard you with an epic overview covering every single aspect. Rather, today we’ll guide you through an early look at some major new features and enhancements we tested in the almost-final version released last week. And in the weeks leading up to the Oct. 22 launch of Windows 7, we’ll continue posting our impressions, testing more features of the OS on various types of hardware.

We’ll start with interface, move on to performance and usability, and then we’ll conclude with the “funner” stuff. Let’s begin exploring, shall we?

Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 will be like ditching your old Toyota Camry for a sexy, new Nissan GT-R. Everything from the typography to the icons, and from the toolbar to the windows, has been refined with some extra detail, polish and shadows. Finally, Microsoft creates a clean, modern look that competes with Apple’s finely designed Mac OS X Leopard.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi all

These sort of reviews are totally meaningless - of course W7 is the best OS from MS yet but the article is a bit of meaningless "dumbed down" mumbo jumbo which isn't even as good as a typical "Sales Spiel" piece of literature.

This reminds me of the typical rubbish you see when going into a large electrical store (in the UK such as Comet / PC World etc.) and want to choose a decent FULL HD TV or Monitor -- and the only displays they have are of some poorly filmed live musical gig with appaling sound and blurry less than standard definition TV pictures -- asking the salesman to display a Hi res photo or blu ray DVD to get some idea of the real quality possible with the equipment just brings back a blank stare.
