Windows 7 review result: like Vista, but better


The first thing you notice when Windows 7 is that it looks like Vista. He also works as Vista, in the sense that they have the same plumbing underneath, to update except for a very welcome DX11 graphics. This works much better than Vista, and most of the Annoyances of Vista have been either removed or (especially) can, so that the system works, how you want to change. It requires adjustments to the extreme.

Microsoft has analyzed data from millions of user sessions calculation to find exactly what people do with their computers, then attacked the "pain points to make Windows 7 faster and easier. (Approximately 15 million people used The Windows 7 Beta.)

The most obvious difference is that Windows 7 will not bore you with questions – even if it is true that the latest version of Vista, much less boring than the original. In fact, you can define the degree of discomfort on a sliding scale, although the reduction increases the risk of security breaches. However, Windows is much more secure than XP, 7, and in any case, the landscape changed since the threat was called XP against worms like Blaster and Slammer to life. Today the most significant changes include security in Internet Explorer 8, the only defending against cross-site scripting.

Another obvious difference is that Windows 7 uses fewer resources.

If Vista really needs 2GB of RAM, Windows 7 will run quite happy to 1GB on an Intel dual-core slow, although I recommend 2GB or, preferably, 4GB with a fast version 64-bit Windows 7

The small size and some optimizations using Windows 7 people and raises more quickly (though not in the same class as Mac OS X).

And laptop batteries should last longer. I’ve been running Windows 7 on an Asus UL30 laptop with a claimed battery life of around 11 hours with Vista: it now does more than 12 hours.

Any computer with Vista is currently running will be better with Windows 7 – a first for Microsoft – and it should work on most PCs running Windows XP SP2. (Search YouTube and you’ll be on the screen with the addition of users visiting inadequate systems, including antique Pentium III chip.) The problem is that upgrading a PC with Windows XP requires you to reinstall Windows 7: you can not reasonably implemented. It is a source of complaints, because it means to reinstall all applications, as well.

However, we’ve known for a dozen years that a clean installation of Windows usually works better, and geeks have generally recommended it.

Indeed, people used to reinstall Windows 95, 98 or Me just to clean up their systems, so it’s silly to get hysterical about it now.

The interface of Windows 7 has some significant changes. First, the Sidebar is gone, but you can keep the watch and other goodies, and you can put anywhere. Secondly, the Quick Launch area of the taskbar and have been replaced by a sort of combo-packs.

Instead of putting applications in the QuickLaunch area, you can now right-click and pin them to the new-style Taskbar, alongside running applications.

When the plane Vista icon in the toolbar TASKS specified unit, several mini-clips, depending on whether Windows-No, Now What EC is interactive. An overview of the mini-aircraft exhibition in full-screen mode on the desktop, and what is the right mouse button lists of options to go.

It makes it dramatically easier to see what you are doing. However, if you are an inveterate Alt-Tabber, that shows the same mini-previews. And if you liked Vista’s Flip 3D feature, that’s still an option.

Incidentally, you can now move TaskBar icons around to change the order, like browser tabs. As I always try to keep XP TaskBar items in the same order, I find this useful. It’s a small point, but Windows 7 has lots of small points, and they add up.

There are a few tips, the use of Windows 7 users with their friends, to show how fractured Aero Aero Aero Peek and Shake. Aero breaks you can put two applications side by side for easy comparison and copying and pasting. Aero Peek is sometimes open windows transparent so you can see what your desktop. Aero Shake means that if you shake a box hides all other windows. All are useful and fun.

The Documents module is reorganized under a single title, the libraries. Among these documents, music, photos and video with Windows 7 to get things in these folders shell. Each has two sub-folders, like music and my music to the public. It ‘s easier to keep things from far away you want to share what you want to keep for themselves.

Sharing is an important part of Windows 7. It has a HomeGroup feature that makes it very easy to set up a home network and share things. It only works with Windows 7 machines, which I expect will sell a few family packs of Windows 7 (three copies of Home Premium for £149.99).

Right-click a photo, for example, select Share, and this gives you four options: Nobody, HomeGroup (Read), HomeGroup (Read/Write) and Specific People. "Plays to" lets you display a video, for example, on a different PC.

Support for the consumer electronics industry’s DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) standard should help Windows 7 PCs work with other devices, though I’ve yet to see an example.

There is awareness of ONE UN Also setting up some "in the Features of Windows 7 will not understand where are you – IN OR non-domestic enterprise network, for example – and the appropriate" Select Printer. There A section of the site’s control panel, and Other Sensors, May be the sensors installed and maintained. Interest Example Light Adaptation "is located in your PC a light sensor, adjust the Windows 7 pm brightness of the screen to match.

Multi-touch is also supported, if you have the hardware to take advantage of it. There is an emerging flood of laptops with multi-touch pads and new all-in-ones with multi-touch screens, but it remains to be seen whether these will be successful.

When it comes to applications for Windows, the older ones have been improved considerably. Paint and WordPad now "Ribbon interface", as Office 2007, and two of the computers and thus Shell (MSH) are much more powerful than before. Technically, many standard applications have been also removed from the operating system, but I expect most PC manufacturers to install them.

What Microsoft has done is decouple the Windows Live Essentials suite of applications – Mail, Messenger, Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, etc – from the operating system. It means the Live programs can be updated from the web every six or nine months, or whatever, instead of on a three-year operating system development cycle. It also reduces the attack area for anti-trust complaints.

But one thing missing in Windows 7 is still the Microsoft Security Essentials anti-virus program, formerly called Morro. To obtain Windows Defender and firewall improvements, but Microsoft seems to make the European Commission’s afraid of what would have been better for users and also an anti-virus software as well. As it stands, installing trial versions of anti-virus companies specialized on new PCs and PC makers pay very well for sales. If Microsoft did the right thing and defend the people for anything, it would upset the applecart financial.

All round, then, Windows 7 is generally good, and some Windows fans reckon it’s better than Apple’s Mac OS X. It’s certainly easier to use than Mac OS X if you are already familiar with the Windows way of doing things. Also, Windows 7 – released to companies on August 6 – has so far proved to be a lot less buggy than Apple’s Snow Leopard, which has even lost users’ data.

If you dig into Windows 7 you will, of course, find numerous relics from the past, going right back through Windows 95 to DOS.

There are lots of inconsistencies that still need cleaning up.

However, Microsoft’s Business on the exploitation of millions of programs stretching decades back, and supports a large number of devices and provide a platform for thousands of competing manufacturers, who do everything from handheld computers and Tablet PC to the network data center mainframe. Only the door of the bunker Windows.

But with luck you will not see too many of these relics, and on the surface, Windows 7 is impressively smooth.

Am full time users of Windows XP that do not have to spend my two PCs to Vista, I do not see a reason to stay with XP now that it seems doomed to failure. I have a Windows Pro 7 discount Amazon Upgrade bought for my office and I intend to buy a new Windows 7 laptop to replace my old ThinkPad X31.

Windows 7 is a long way from being perfect, and it’s not an essential upgrade if you’re happy with XP. But nor is there a real reason to avoid it. Windows 7 is simply the best version of Windows you can get.
