Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

Windows 7 is complete! Don’t know what it is, well it’s the new operating system from Microsoft to replace Vista! As many of you know Vista has caused a lot of mixed emotions during it’s existence. Windows 7 is designed to increase the performance and look of the OS. Check out this video from CNET on Windows Vista 7.

If you are like me, or like most windows users, you want more than one window at a time. Windows 7 will allow you to view two windows at the same time easily! Most software applications that handle multiple windows provide tiling options (Tile Horizontal, Tile Vertical) where the application takes all open windows within that app and display and re-size them all so they are all visible. Window 7 will now do this amongst different application you have open!

Familiar with Mac OS X? Well there are some Mac OS X looking features in Windows 7. The taskbar is all new as you just saw in the video, providing fast and easy program docking.

Well the hype is there, and the industry is expecting Windows 7 to be a success and give a helpful boost to the struggling tech industry. The scheduled release date is in October 2009. So if you are planning on buying a new computer in the next couple of months, you might want to wait till October and give Windows 7 a try. We’ll see how it does. I don’t have a pre-release copy of it, but I know some people who have run it, and they liked it’s improvements over Vista. Time will tell!
