Microsoft Releases Windows 7

Even though we might be pretty big fans of the stuff that comes from that other software and hardware company, we realize that a lot of people out there are also big fans of Microsoft’s Windows products. So, in the interest of fair and balanced reporting, we are pleased to let you know that the Redmond giant has today released the latest version of its operating system, dubbed Windows 7.

The new software arrives in stores today with much better word of mouth and reviews than Windows Vista, the previous version released a few years ago. The new operating system is designed to boot up faster, look cleaner and streamline the way people work with fewer clicks and fewer annoying notifications. Windows 7 is also said to work better with plug-in devices, like cameras. Setting up home networking to share photos and music is also supposed to be easier. Several versions of the software will be sold with prices starting around $120.

In the meantime, if you are thinking about upgrading to Windows 7, first run Microsoft’s free Upgrade Advisor to make sure that your current system’s hardware and software will still work. Over at Lifehacker they have a lot more tips about preparing for a Windows 7 install, including advice on setting it up alongside an earlier copy of Windows or on a Mac.

If you do decide to upgrade, be sure to let us know how it goes in the comments.
