windows 7 boot
Let's face it; Windows 7 is to Windows Vista, what Windows XP was
to Windows Millennium, a replacement for a very bad operating
system Windows Vista was such an annoyance to use, that almost
anything (even switching to Mac OS or Linux) would have been
better After 3 years of hearing people complain about Windows
Vista, Microsoft was well aware that people absolutely hated Vista In
fact, I disliked Vista so much that I eventually switched back to using
Windows XP
 But now it is Windows 7 to the rescue What's New It Looks Better-
Okay enough with the Windows Vista venting; what makes Windows
7 different or even better? Well the most obvious difference is its
looks Although it's not dramatically different from Windows Vista,
Microsoft has made a few tweaks and changes to Windows 7
desktop, which give it an improved, look over Vista
 It's Easier to Use- This is the area that Microsoft really got right;
where they took the time to really listen to the customer about the
changes that would make Windows a more user friendly operating
system It Works Better - Windows 7 is much improved over
previous versions of Windows Microsoft has done a great job of
developing Windows 7 so that it installs faster and with less human
involvement
  The Windows installation process continues to get better You just
insert the Windows 7 DVD, answer a few questions about
preferences and click the "Install Now" button This process takes
about 30 to 45 minutes; this is usually for clean install, not upgrades
 For upgrades the total time will be a little longer I heard a rumor
where the upgrade process for one user took more than 3 hours
Also, Upgrading to Windows 7 in most case does not require you to
buy a new computer
 If your computer is already running Windows Vista, it can easily run
Windows 7 However, I highly would encourage you to download
Microsoft Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and run it before you attempt
to upgrade It's Safer - Windows 7 is more secure
 It uses BitLocker, a new file encryption system Encryption is a way
of protecting your data from being tampered with My Final thoughts
While, I think Windows 7 is an improvement over previous versions
of Windows it windows 7 boot is far from perfect
 For the first 3 months of use, I thought Windows 7 might possibly be
the perfect operating system But I'm sure Apple computer and Linux
users would strongly disagree One of my kids has a Mac book Pro
running Leopard and on those occasions when I have used it, I liked
it a lot
 I have also been using Linux Mint on another computer the past 6
months and I liked it as well; plus it's free It is clear however, that
Microsoft put a lot of thought into Windows 7 and for a change; it
appears that they were really listening to their customers
