The forthcoming release of Windows 7 for PC and laptop users will repair the damage done to Microsoft’s reputation by its Vista operating system, according to an industry expert.
Simon May, author of the Rough Guide to Windows 7, said that the new software shows a return to form for Microsoft, adding that virtually no one has a bad thing to say about it.
“Windows is not Microsoft’s only product or even it’s only big product, but it is key to its reputation. I think Windows 7 might be the new XP – highly adopted, loved by some and a serious competitor to the next version of Windows,” he added.
The new operating system will be released tomorrow (October 22nd) and it is claimed that it is better performing, easier to use and more intelligent that Vista.
New features include preview windows, jumplists and a minimiser tool, which allows users to shake their current open application to clear the screen of any open programmes which are cluttering their desktop.
