Windows 7 Rocks
Thursday, 10th February 2011
I have been using Windows 7 in anger for a week now and I have to say that it rocks. I'm running several versions of Visual Studio to develop applications and websites, so I'm talking about light usage of a machine here!
It definitely looks like they have spent time on every aspect of this version. The task bar is slick, tabbing between windows is really nice and everything seems to be more productive thanks to clever visual clues.
I must admit, I never really had the problems that other people reported about Vista and haven't actually found anyone who can describe them to me first hand - but Windows 7 is really awesome. It certainly beats developing on Windows XP or even Windows Server machines.
