Windows 7's first 100 days: So how were yours?
Posted by Zack Whittaker @ 6:35 am
It has been 100 days since the release-to-manufacturing copy of Windows 7 was available for download on MSDN and TechNet.
Iíll put this very simply: I have never used an operating system which works so well, is as stable as it is, is aesthetically pleasing, and is a pleasure to use still even after three and a bit months.
There is nothing within Windows 7 which is particularly aimed at students or me specifically. The whole kit and kaboodle focuses on making it an all-inclusive ďexperienceĒ, but after using it for so long now the experience fades into the background, like a sickly cough in a lecture theatre.
At the end of the day, all you want to do is check your emails or whop out a quick essay. You donít particularly care about the experience and most of the time you donít notice the surroundings. Even with Windows 7, this hasnít changed.
