Windows 7

June 30, 2009 at 1:25 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

I attended the Southern California Code Camp last weekend. They were handing out free Windows 7 beta discs out, so I decided to put it on my laptop to play with it.

Initial impressions:
– Seems much faster than Windows Vista. The more I used Vista, the more I didn’t like it. Couldn’t Microsoft have made the damn thing faster? Subjectively, 7 seems faster than Vista
– The interface resembles that of Vista, which is a good thing. Seems more mac-ish and more modern. There are a few things that make things a bit slicker. Certain icons kind of glow when you hover over them. It just looks more modern.
– Release Candidate 1 seems remarkably stable. It was compatible with all my drivers, except my virus checker (AVG)
– 7 seems to be an incremental upgrade over vista in the same way that xp was an incremental upgrade over 2000. This is my impression anyway.

I’ve only used the OS for a few hours, so my review isn’t very in-depth, but i’ll write more on it as I learn more. So far, it’s a thumbs up.
