Windows 7: Microsoft’s long awaited seventh operating system
Windows 7 is going to be the next update to the Microsoft Windows operating system line of software. Windows 7 couldn’t come soon enough after Windows Vista in the opinion of many. It is being developed with the goal of being compatible with the hardware and applications with which Vista and XP are compatible with. Some new features are being added to it to the many popular features of Vista and XP. On the other hand some of the current features are being removed. Microsoft’s broadest goal is to make Windows 7 faster, more secure and reliable. Windows 7 has completed beta testing and the release candidate has been available to hundreds of thousands of testers nearly 2 month ago.
Completion of Windows 7 was such a high priority; Microsoft has even released the newest version of Windows to manufacturing already. The slated date of release for the long awaited ‘XP replacement’ has been released and is scheduled for October 22nd. However, you may start seeing many manufacturers and resellers selling current Vista model PCs, with a “Free Upgrade to 7” offer included. These users will have to mail into Microsoft and pay shipping and handling to retain their copy of the Windows 7 Upgrade version. Seven has been boasted for quicker start-up times than both Window XP and Vista and improved performance for a whole host of typical functions.
New Improved Features in Windows 7
Advanced Taskbar with full screen previews: Windows 7 gives you the ability to set the order of your taskbar at the bottom according to your preferences. Users can also see a full screen preview of the window, making program hopping even easier.
JumpList: Another attractive feature of Windows 7 is known as jump list. It improves the efficiency of the operation system by giving the user an easy interface listing all the most commonly viewed file directories, allowing for quick navigating to common files and folders.
Ease of Use: Windows 7 gives users a more intuitive graphical user interface and less menus and submenus. The simplified desktop customization is one example of how Windows customization will be more accessible for even beginner PC users.
More built-in applications: Windows 7 is equipped with a lot of the latest programs such as Internet explorer 8, Windows Live Messenger, Photo Gallery, Mail, Writer, Movie Maker, and more. These applications are in place to make sure you have full functionality of all today’s most common computer functions as soon as you turn on your computer for the first time.
Advanced Device Management: Windows 7 gives users an advanced device management method by providing a feature called Device Staging. Device stage allows the ability to interact with your devices and perform common tasks on any device within a single window.
Networking: Windows 7 has made creating a home group or small business network as less intimidating endeavor as compared to the complications and quirks of the process in previous versions of Windows.
Windows 7 will be released for sale at all retailers October 22nd 2009
Our view: Windows 7 should be a much more popular operating system than Windows Vista right off jump street. More importantly I think, it will be a much more user friendly and more stable operating system than its predecessor. It surprisingly has more features than expected. Users that are currently using Windows Vista will flock to Seven in droves and rightfully so. Seven will prove more responsive, more aesthetically pleasing and more stable than Vista without much convincing. Seven’s start up time and even it’s installation process will be much improved and streamlined even further.
