WINDOWS 7 – October 22nd is the day! – Finally, Windows users get to catch up to Mac users again, instead of allowing Microsoft to embarrass itself like it did with Microsoft Vista. On October 22nd, Windows 7 will be released. This is a huge improvement over Windows Vista and XP and should be as popular as XP in home and work environments. If you’ve purchased a computer since late June, you are eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 7. This “in-place” upgrade will allow you to pop the DVD in, click run, and an hour later you’ll have Windows 7, at least that’s what we’re being told. So, don’t forget to sign up for the free DVD for it because you won’t get it otherwise. The technical specifications are similar to Vista, so don’t expect it to run on your four year old desktop with 512 Mb RAM because it won’t. Stay with Windows XP.
