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.

    Hi Noel:
    I hope you can help me. I read your blogs on virtual xp using windows 7 pro. I need to replace an old xp computer. I had macromedia freehand (xp) on it which is no longer made (and like so much better than illustrator) plus older versions of photoshop and illustrator. do you have any experience with these working in windows 7 pro. i have never seen any article with the virtual using powerful graphics software. hp is now offering a couple of windows 7 laptops but i don’t want to spend the extra 150.00 for pro if it is not going to work for these softwares. the model that I am looking is the 15t j100. That is the only laptops they are offering with windows 7 and windows 7 pro.
    Thanks, Susan
