Windows 7 is now available. It’s Microsoft’s newest and greatest operating system that it hopes will correct the wrongs did in Microsoft Vista and hopefully convince businesses that upgrading to Windows 7 is worth it.
Microsoft has failed miserably in recent years to coerce users to jump from a very stable platform – its Windows XP operating system – to Vista. Users complained that Vista was too slow, didn’t work well, had issues with hardware compatibility.
What did Microsoft do? Redesign Vista, correct everything that was wrong with the operating system and release Microsoft Windows 7.
People who have attempted the “upgrade” process in Windows 7 have found that IF it works, it can take upwards of 20 hours. As well, gamers are reporting problems, there are issues with drivers and software compatibility.
Here we go again!
Microsoft in their great wisdom has managed to convince most that Windows 7 is the best operating system it has released. That will be right up until a major security flaw is unveiled and everyone with a Windows 7 computer crashes, loses data or has a heart attack because they cannot get into FaceBook or Twitter.
Windows XP was a solid and very reliable operating system. Even with its issues, it simply worked and worked well! Vista sucked and well, the verdict is still out on Microsoft Windows 7.
Am I running to upgrade to Windows 7. Not in the next few months. I will however, continue with Ubuntu and enjoy great productivity.
