Windows 7

I have installed Windows 7 aka Windows Seven successfully

Hello all,

Are you waiting for the new OS that Microsoft is going to release within next year. Perhaps Windows 7 the next version of Vista systems might be released before 2010, by the end of the last quarter in 2009.

Any way, I wondered a lot. And download the Windows 7 the first day it is released for MSDN Subscribers. I have downloaded both the 32 bit and the 64 bit editions of Window 7 Ultimate edition from MSDN subscriber downloads. But a friend of mine has installed the 32-bit edition before I install the X64 Windows Seven.

His opinion about the Windows 7, although the released version is a Beta version, is very positive. I know he does not like working on betas. Actually he was looking for a stable operating system after working on Vista Ultimate. His main aim is running the Vista or the Windows 7 as a home media pc. And his first impression about the Windows 7 is very encouraging. He said he was tired of the Vista, and Windows 7 is much more reliable when compared with Vista SP2.

If you ask my opinion about Microsoft Windows Seven, after a failed installation attempt as you can see how I failed because of insufficient disk place at Microsoft Windows 7 - A failed installation titled picture gallery, I managed to install Windows 7 both as an upgrade from Windows Vista or as a fresh installation.

I had very limited disk space on my hard disk, so I had to bought a new disk in order to spare disk space for HD movies :) By the way I bought a Samsung SpinPoint F1 series hard disk. Do you have any comments on these disks. Actually after I heard about the failures about a wide range of products of a disk producers I'm glad to have chosen the Samsung SpinPoints.

OK, now a few notes about the Windows 7 installation experience that I can share with you. First it is very simple, you do not have to stand by your computer. You just type a few descriptive names, chose your regional selections, etc. Then start installation and take a short break. Because the installation is also fast. I can easily say that Windows 7 Beta release is the simpliest operating system installation I had ever experienced.

The desktop is very similar to Vista with a few slight differences. If you wonder the new Windows 7 games as I had, there is not an additional game that were existing in the Vista Ultimate editions unfortunately.

The IE 8 is installed default on the Windows Seven. By the way the Internet Explorer IE 8 Beta 2 is far better than the first beta.

I would like to share my experiences on Windows 7 soon again in this blog. If you have any questions, please share them with us.

Wish you a good Windows 7 experience too!
