So… Vista or Windows 7?

windows-7-logo1It seems like it was just the other day we were all sitting around with our friends, complaining about how long it was going to take to get our laptops downgraded to Windows XP because of how utterly horrible Windows Vista turned out to be.

Here’s an operating system that takes up a startling amount of memory, while only offering an aesthetically pleasing interface that has too many security holes, and a thousand other problems that have basically tanked Vista, and therefore made Mac and Linux rise in popularity.

So while some of us are thanking our lucky stars that we still have, and love our old standard XP machines, the curious are coming out of the woodwork to see what’s in store from Windows 7.

The most noteworthy feature so far in Windows 7 is the new Windows Media Player, which has finally changed into something we can look forward to again. According to Seth Rosenblatt of CNET news:

“Certainly, one of the biggest new features makes Windows Media Player useful again: you can now stream media files from one Windows 7 computer to another, across the Internet and out of network. Even better, the set up procedure is dead simple.”

Excellent news for people who love music, and love to share music, –count us in! One feature that has the critics feeling pretty neutral is the virtual “XP mode” that Windows 7 will have available, mostly to business owners and professionals, who need to view documents or programs that aren’t upgraded to run in Windows 7 or Vista. Other changes such as more accurate search results, and a lack of in-system bluetooth support.
