Upgrading to Windows 7
If you've paid any attention to what's going on in a couple days then you'll know that the new operating system from Microsoft is set to launch, October 22nd to be more specific. It's called Windows 7, while I'm not attracted to the name of it, I do like the operating system itself. It offers many new things over Vista, including the ability to run smoother and of course better reviews and feedback.
The new Windows 7 comes in three basic versions available to the consumer, yes there are other versions like Enterprise but those are more for business level installations so we're not going to worry about those too much, we're more concerned with what choices the average consumer has. Each of the versions has something different to offer the consumer, and as expected as you go up in price the more features you'll expect to find and the more stuff you'll be able to do. You also have the choice of 32bit and 64bit versions of the operating systems as well.
There is another version not listed on the chart called Windows 7 Starter, it's not exactly available to purchase but the average person may run into it especially if they're purchasing a netbook with Windows 7 pre-installed. W7 starter is basically a very minimalistic or stripped down version of Home Premium that's configured to run fast and effectively on netbooks or lower specification notebooks. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles and aesthetic attributes of the other versions like Aero for example. These things are omitted for a reason, to make the end user experience that much more enjoyable and faster. TestFreaks
