Windows 7 (64 bit)

February 27, 2010

So far the best that I can say about Windows 7 (64 bit) is that I’m not totally frustrated with it.  As with any new operating system, particularly Microsoft products, it takes a few weeks to tweak things to just the way you like them.  But it also takes a while for the glitches to start showing up.  So far I have only had a couple of quirky events where I had to restart my browser or reset some options, and one major freeze up where I had to I had to reboot the computer.

I was tempted, at first, to switch to a Mac but as it turns out it would have been a monumental task for me to at this particular period in time.  By staying with PC I manged to get away with not having to upgrade most of my software.  I’m now using Open Office which I’m liking a lot so far, and because Windows 7 will let you run a virtual copy of XP I’m able to run my current accounting software which is great.  I was very surprised that some applications like WordPerfect 10 actually installed with no problems at all even though the MS website said it would not run.  (They wouldn’t be pulling my leg now, would they.)

So in celebration of Windows… here’s a window.
