I just made a ^fanboy^ post about Windows 7 with their advertisement’s tagline that windows 7 was my idea. Certainly it was my idea and it’s exciting to see that idea come to life.
I used windows 7 beta version and then I again used windows 7 RC version which not going to expire sooner. And I’m pleased with the progress. I can discuss what’s new in windows 7 & which features impressive, but I know there’s already thousands of pages written about it. So I’d simply suggest you to visit windows website. I heard that windows 7 breaks the pre-order volume records of harry potter’s 7th book at Amazon. So, yes we have been waiting for this operating system since long…. since we fed up with windows XP, and sorry windows vista was disaster. I’m so glad that I never bought it and/or installed it on my PC.
Incidentally if I look at my OS upgrades trend, I’ve skipped windows operating systems and used alternate upgrades.
Since the beginning I used:
- windows 3.1 (Oh yeah I remember my early school days 😀 )
- windows 95 never used it, & never heard of it 😛
- Windows 98 used for looooooooong time on my own PC as well as on others
- Windows 2000 I know whats coming in your mind winMe> doesn’t qualify to be listed 😉
- windows XP yes, always. & still will. on netbook maybe.
- windows Vista I specifically bought a new laptop which doesnt come the vista pre-installed.
- windows 7 I’m using it RC version. & I’m pretty much happy with it.
I see the same opinion shared on a tech/web forum where people more than 70% people voted said Vista sucks and they’ve been waiting for newer, better/another OS (now windows 7) from windows. Do you have a choice? of course not, well unless, if you can play around with linux…
But I know windows 7 is here to stay, I’m not saying this because it’s newly launched, I could have said this for vista couple of years back. I’m saying it because I’ve used it. And I’m looking forward to it.
