Microsoft almost lost the ground when people felt that Vista is not up to the mark. But MS is back with a bang.
I have just installed Windows 7 Ultimate and my first impression was wouuu…
Installation went so smooth and fast. What amazed me most is the speed. It is fast. I have Dell Vostro 1500, Core 2 duo T5270 @ 1.40 Ghz, 2 GB RAM. On this configuration it works very good. MS has changed the UI experience a lot in Windows 7. They have done some very small changes which will make the life easy and good.
Few of them are :
1. Now when you open My Computer ( Which is now just “Computer) ) in the status bar you will find some good information about your computer like
Name Of your computer, Domain or workgroup, Processor and memory etc.
2. Sticky Notes : No need to install any third party software or Office One Note. Your sticky notes are present in windows 7 only.
3. Snipping tool : The above snaps was created using snipping tool. So easy to use. Just start it and drag it to the area you want to snip.
4. Calculator : At last some one spent some time and improved it.
5. Paint : looks like it has been improved a lot. Did not used it yet.
6. Windows Power shell is now in built.
7. All new shiny Date Time Indicator. The Show Additional clock feature is very very handy.
Few Disappointments are there also : I am trying to find solutions about it also. I will post each of them as soon as I get.
1. Why no one wants to improve notepad a bit. I know its just tiny editor and it should not have full fledged features of Editor like Notepad++, But I think it should at least have some features of notepad2
2. The old problem of Windows : The copy or move operation is so slow and the timing calculation it shows is
3. Network Activity Indicator is missing :
Now I hate this. It has to be there. Now I just dont have easy visual confirmation of Network activity.
4. Windows Explorer does not have Address Bar
I used to copy address of folder from address bar. Now I can not.
