These commercials are really neat… but still they don’t make me to upgrade to Windows 7 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Produktion Windows 7: Fertige Boxen
Today I learned about a new way of upgrading to Windows 7. Actually you don’t need to run to the store anymore or order it via the Internet. You can download it. It’s not for free of course but I think it’s much more comfortable and there is an option to order a backup disc.

I think the most sexy feature of Windows 7 is DirectX 11 – check out a demo – it’s really neat:

Windows 7 without IE in Europe


That’s big and in my opinion a step in the right direction. Now Windows 7 needs to bring a feature to choose from a different set of browsers. Internet Explorer 8 is for sure competitive so I think sill a lot of people will choose it as their primary browser.

… but what about the media player, firewall, messenger that’s bundled? ๐Ÿ˜€


Windows 7


I’ll probably get Windows 7 for my new Phenom II machine once it’s out. Ubuntu Ultimate is nice and stuff but that’s simply not Windows. I totally denied getting Vista but 7 looks great and finally MicroSoft is listening to user feedback ๐Ÿ™‚ – aghemm! – finally !!!

Did I mention that I’m a real Windows fan? I always preferred it over GEOS and OS2… I started with version 2.0 around 1989 ! The Hercules monchorme graphics back then really rocked ๐Ÿ™‚ Later I found out it can run in EGA (16 color mode) as well ๐Ÿ˜€
