“Number 7 for Luck?”

The netbook/laptop I am currently using has been mine now for four years. When I bought it, Windows 7 was pretty new and having had a bad experience with Windows Vista, I was a little worried about whether it would be an improvement or worse yet. I had been hoping to revert back to XP, the better...

Windows 7 makes Windows Vista feel like a beta. That’s my philosophy. It was my philosophy before I bought Windows 7 and it’s still my philosophy now. That’s where the “it looks like Vista” comments come from. Windows 7 is Vista without all the rubbish. Everything people moaned about in vista is...

My father, a venerable old gentleman of 79 years at the time decided to buy a laptop from Aldi, and surprise me. He had no experience of computers, but wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It was one of the first laptops shipped with Vista, and my first viewing. Vista seemed like a...

Windows 7! As I quietly type across my slim keyboard on top of a beautiful interface, I can definitely say this is a very top notch operating system!
