Windows 7


So, the other day I was bored, and when I get bored, I usually completely remake/redo something. I decided to format my hard drive and install the beta version of Windows 7.

And I'm glad I did!

We have been using the 32-bit version of Windows XP on the computer I built last year. Unfortunately, that meant I couldn't use all of my 4 GB of RAM, so I've never been able to enjoy my computer as much. Now with Windows 7, I can!

I like Windows 7 because it acts more like a Mac than past versions of Windows. And apparently, it already has fewer compatibility issues than Vista. Though some of my programs I haven't figured out how to install.

Anyway, thought you techie-folks would enjoy that!
