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.

Even though I haven't used the RTM version for 100 days, I've experienced no issues and have enjoyed this version.

This will be a great version of Windows, and I'm sure that people will adopt it have forget about XP and Vista.

Windows 7 RC 7100 x64
 
 

Am running it at Work atm and have had the 7100 build for a while at home, no problems as of yet.
coming from WinXP Pro which i used for years and years (skipped vista altogether) it took a little time to get used to how things were and WHERE things were.
But once you learn it all, its not bad

Been using it only since release date...happy as the devil since. Upgraded one PC and bought a new PC with 64 bit installed last week.

I signed up for testing 7 and ran the beta builds until the RCs were available where even those saw favorable results. That's been far longer then 100 days but 10 months now!

In all that time only one program surprizingly a newer version of one used for several years keeps running into problems were XP or Vista(likely Vista) will have to go back on a second drive once that is no longer seeing the 64bit RC still on. Hopefully the 32bit retail version will be able to run the older version of that program rather then a possible need to set up a dual boot of XP/Vista on the second OS drive there.

I am very pleased. Very minor things I had to figure out--but nothing burdensome or complex. 10/10.

Been using the RTM since day 1 essentially, and I couldn't be happier. I used to flip-flop between OS's, but with 7, I'll never be going back to XP or Vista.

My first days with a Windows 8 phone
I became adventurous and spent $79 for a Windows 8 phone. I said to myself what can you lose, I spent similar money for a USB stick. But what I can gain is some experience - as if I needed that at my age, LOL. My first impressions are mixed. There are really 3 parts to it. 1. The Nokia part...
