Microsoft Windows 7
29 November 2009
Conclusion: Microsoft's new OS is a big improvement over Windows Vista, and because it's based on the same underlying kernel code there should be fewer compatibility headaches for those who make the switch. Add to that a retooled taskbar, simpler home networking, faster start-up, and more, and Windows 7 may succeed where Vista failed.
Pros: Smaller disk and memory footprint. Faster installation, startup, shutdown. Stable. Less intrusive. Taskbar icons more flexible. New home networking capabilities, including media streaming. Working with external hardware is easier. Multitouch support. Nice new eye candy.
Cons: Keeps the Registry and some other Windows baggage. Performance not a huge gain over Vista. A bit pricey for upgraders.
