Windows 7 Power User Overview

http://www.cnet.com/ is one the most reliable sources on the Internet for hi-tech information.


In the following video, Seth Rosenblatt, Senior Associate Editor with Cnet.com takes a good look at Windows 7.

If you are looking for a new computer, you will be happy to know that the next version of Windows (Version 7) does away with much of the issues experienced in Vista. Also, compared to Vista, Windows 7 reported: runs faster, is more stable, and supports legacy hardware and software better.




That being said, for those of you that plan on installing Windows XP your next new computer keep this in mind:

Windows XP has a maximum ram limitation of 3 GB

Considering that most new PCs are shipping with 4 GB or RAM or more, you are forced with 2 options: Vista or Windows 7

In my personal opinion, most of the bugs have been sorted out in Vista now so either option is just fine. Also, Vista has some nice features compared to Windows XP so once you get used to the new look and feel, you should find yourself getting more done and you should find it easier to find the data you need when you need it. That being said, if you have to choose, I advise switching to Windows 7 when you get the chance.

Also, in Windows 7 versions: Business (or Pro) or Ultimate, you can install the Windows XP mode in case you run into any issues with old software, etc.

Enough said, here is Seth:
