Microsoft Windows 7 Preview

 Date: Tuesday 21 July, 2009
News Content

We were invited to Microsoft's North Ryde Office, just off Epping Road, for a night of previewing Microsoft's new Windows 7 operating System which is due for release on the 22nd October 2009.

Apart from the obvious interface changes, the thing the stood out about Windows 7 was that it is now Lean and Mean, requiring far less resources then Windows Vista. The whole operating system has been optimised for speed. This is good news for Media Centre users as more resources will be available for media centre to use providing an even better Media Centre experience.

Windows 7 will be available in the following versions :-
  1. Windows 7 Starter
  2. Windows 7 Home Premium
  3. Windows 7 Professional
  4. Windows 7 ultimate
  5. Windows 7 enterprise
Windows 7 Starter is intended for Netbooks, while Windows 7 ultimate and Windows 7 enterprise are identical and are aimed at cooperate environments.

Windows Media Centre is available in Windows 7 Home Premium onwards. Windows 7 Starter is the only version that will not include Windows Media Centre.

If you are running Windows Vista, you can simply upgrade to the equivalent version of Windows 7. If you are running Windows XP there is no upgrade path and you will be required to format your hard drive and install a fresh new copy of windows 7. For Windows XP Home use Windows 7 Home Premium and for Windows XP professional use Windows 7 Professional.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
