Windows 7 a Winner at First Review

Well Windows 7 is out on the street and so far it looks like a significant step forward over Vista. With some new additions that should make it more user friendly for a long time to come. I haven’t yet changed my Laptop from XP pro, but the desktop is doing well with it and I am monitoring its stability. So far no issues with old program compatibility so they seem to have got it right this time.

The Jump List is pretty cool and the Shake it up feature is very helpful when you have a lot of open windows (that statement is pretty significant in itself if you’ve had the multiple window problems I had w Vista). I don’t yet have a touch screen PC (but will probably by the end of the year) so I can’t really comment on the compatablity but if it all works as stated the multiple touch feature found on many 3g phones will be an even more comfortable advance.  

Here is a link to Amazon.com Windows 7 resource center where you can check out what’s new and check the blogs for problems and comments. As I said at the Top Looks like a winner, well worth the pennies if you’re running Vista of any kind.

If I could get mine to do special fonts I already would have, you might want to give this one a try though it seems pretty good so far..

Nice hub. I think Microsoft may have redeemed themselves after Vista had many complaints. 7 is said to run on "netbooks" nicely too. The lower RAM and CPU usage is a plus.

I agree, Big John. I have been using 7 ultimate for the past 4 months (beta tester) and it seems nice. Not one problem found/noticed so far. Yes, the multiple window feature is my favorite.

Gary777g - Thanks for Dropping by and commenting, Being both a MAC and a PC user I am skeptical on Windows O/S's this one seems to have done it right finally.

Great hub, I agree about Windows 7 it's much better than Vista, which I was glad to be done with.

I have Window 7 now, only had XP before but prefer this one. Much better. I haven't tried all the features yet though.
