Windows 7 Released This Month

As we’re sure you’ve heard, the new Microsoft operating system - Windows 7 - is released this month. There’s not enough space to list everything new and improved about Windows 7, so here are a few features we really like.

Below is a table of the relative speeds it will take Windows 7 to complete certain tasks compared to Windows Vista. These tests were run on identical laptops.

Open Word 20074 seconds2 seconds
Open Excel 20073 seconds2 seconds
Time to hibernate 45 seconds21 seconds
Time to boot (start up)60 seconds40 seconds

Windows 7 is designed to be understated. Its minimalist style takes a step away from the flashiness of Vista, and works in the background, allowing you to concentrate on your work rather than Windows itself.

For example, the taskbar has been redesigned so Quick Start icons and running tasks have been grouped into one thus looking neater and allowing for more space on the screen.

Better for Roaming
For those of you who use your laptop on the move or in a wireless office, Windows 7 is far better at dealing with and switching between wireless networks.

Windows 7 is released on October 22nd. If you’re interested in upgrading, please get in touch.
