Windows 7 Love

I got my Windows 7 DVD for a while but I have decided not to upgrade to the latest OS from Microsoft as soon as the installation disk arrived.

The main reason is because through my personal experience of upgrading Microsoft made OSes from the past 10 years, the first 6 month would always be terrible.

Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista.

All were not pretty during early period of launch.

One other reason why I didn’t jump immediately into the new system (like I used to) is the hassle that came with upgrading to a new OS.

Backing up all the stuff that you own on your computer that goes back 5-6 years is really, really time consuming, and I happen to be one lazy hermit.

Well, not until yesterday.

I was up partying on the night before, and I woke up that morning, with a sore neck and a sleepy head because that’s what always happened when I ended sleeping in beds that are not mine; but I somehow had an enlightment that I need to stop this unprofitable procrastination and upgrade to Windows 7 right away when I reach home.

So I did, and it was incredibly trouble free!

I had a slight trouble with the drivers for my Sound Blaster, but it was resolved pretty quickly and it was a really quick process, I think I’m in the future!

Anyways, with just a couple of hours using the new operating system from Microsoft, I must say, I’m really, really impressed!

I mean, this thing is even faster and better than any OSes from Apple!

The taskbar has been improved for easy multi-tasking and the visual improvements actually help me get things done faster and more precise.

I am really loving the new taskbar, and the improved flexibility of the widgets are a HUGE plus; I don’t need third party software for those!

I cannot believe that this is something that comes from Microsoft!

I tried encoding a couple of videos with TMPGEnc, while I multi-process some photos with Adobe Photoshop as iTunes play some dikir barat music, and my browsing experience with Firefox did not seem to have any effect at all!

Alas, I must conclude, Windows 7 is the perfect match for my Core i7.

It was brilliant, and I am more than glad that I made the upgrade.

I should have trusted the reviews posted on the internet and upgrade earlier.

Microsoft, congratulations. You surely didn’t fuck this up, and believe me, your reputation has been secured.

Still, Internet Explorer is still way behind Firefox.

For those who haven’t tried it, GO WIN7 NOW!
