New From Microsoft

July 28th, 2009

Windows 7 is on its way! The latest OS from Microsoft will be available on Oct 22.  Check out the video demo from CNet.

This is a full replacement operating system, and more than just “Vista done right.” From driver support to multitouch groundwork for the future, from better battery management to the most user-friendly interface Microsoft has ever had…“, CNet reports.

Preorder or see version comparison at Microsoft’s Store.

MS Office 2010 is close too. Read more…



The latest version of Windows is just around the corner. Windows 7 will be available for purchase on October 22nd.

Microsoft offers a guarantee on new computers purchased near the release date of their latest operating system.  Probably around the end of June, new computers will include a free, or discounted upgrade to Windows 7.   If I were in the market, I’d wait until then to buy.

Have Windows Vista now and interested in upgrading to 7?  Rumors suggest upgrades may be as little as $50 – $100, depending on your version of Vista.

Why Windows 7?
Most reviews share high opinions of Microsoft’s latest operating system.  Faster, smaller, ready for touch screen and multi-touch interfaces, and tons of additional visual features, to name a few.

In the news…

Wow! This XBOX preview looks amazing!  Watch video… (keep watching for home use, not just games)


What is Windows 7?

January 15th, 2009


Windows XP, Vista, and now, Windows 7 is Microsoft’s latest operating system.

The previews look clean and simple.  I’ve been impressed with everything I’ve seen and read.  Check out great screenshots, and a few videos here.

More details…
Currently called Windows 7, it will be all that Vista should have been,  without the annoyances.  Windows 7 was announced late last year, and Microsoft recently released a public beta.  Although officially it should be available late 2009, early 2010, many speculate it will be available mid-2009.
