Microsoft focused on the fundamentals with Windows 7, listening to consumers and incorporating their feedback to produce an exceptional release. I remember when the first beta of Windows 7 was released in January of 2009 that this was going to be something special. Improved performance and efficiency of the code, revamped user interface, improved compatibility all contribute to an exciting user experience.
If you haven’t upgraded to Windows 7, now is a great time, I have been running it on my Dell Dimension 8300 I purchased back in 2004 and the performance is great. That’s one of the great things about the OS, the performance and efficiency. I also love features such as Jump List, enhanced search, desktop effects such as Aero Snaps, Peeks and the beautiful themes.
