The launch of the Windows 7 this week had the heart pounding of Microsoft and why not, their Vista made their market from 90 % to 85%.
Designed for the touch screen but works on any screen of quite good system. It's not a what-if scenario. Windows 7, set to arrive on new PCs and as a shrink wrapped upgrade on October 22, has a minimalist feel and attempts to fix annoyances old and new. In contrast, Windows Vista offered a flashy new interface, but its poor performance, compatibility gotchas, and lack of compelling features made some folks regret upgrading and others refuse to leave Windows XP.
Windows 7 is hardly flawless. Some features feel unfinished; others won't realize their potential without heavy lifting by third parties. And some long-standing annoyances remain intact. But overall, the final shipping version I test-drove appears to be the worthy successor to Windows XP that Vista never was.
