So I've been using windows 7 for a bit over a week now and here are some of my opinions on it;
First off, let's see what's new with it utility wise....
Windows 7 Start Menu
1. Sticky notes
Basically just notes you can leave on your desktop, good for reminding yourself what you are doing next.
2. Maths input panel
Really simple, you write simple math equations on it, and the computer does the rest, it's more of a look towards the future of how computers will read input from the user. I think it would be better if I had a graphics pad for it, and I would say the code for reading symbols needs to be refined a bit.
3. Snipping tool
The Snipping tool is a utility for taking screen shots, and that's all there really is to it.
4. Paint and WordPad
The stupid mother f!@#$%s changed the interface to the "Ribbon User Interface" (first seen in Microsoft office 2007) making it impossible to use, until I get used to it.
5. Windows Movie Maker
Windows Movie Maker has now become a component of Windows live; it is now known as Windows live Movie Maker.
6. Windows DVD Maker
Windows now has a wizard for making DVDs.
7. Shutdown text
Notice that it now says "shutdown", as opposed to windows vista which just had an off button that would only send the computer in to standby mode.
Other things about windows 7,
I can't get Command Prompt to run in full screen, I've tried everything; I've even disabled and removed my graphics card, and it still doesn't work so I don't know if this is anything to do with the operating system or what.
There is the same crash procedure as with windows vista, which is all well and good if you're an everyday user, but if you are a developer, it makes it incredibly annoying to write programs.
Windows explorer also likes to crash often, I don't know if this has something to do with my computer or it's the operating system it's self but it is very annoying.
Better than vista by a long shot and just as good as XP, plus with the added bonus of windows XP mode (only in some versions) there is really no need for windows XP anymore.
Know what version of Windows 7 you are buying; some versions may not have a specific feature others do.
