Windows 7 Available on Thursday

The day is finally here for those of you waiting to ditch Microsoft Windows Vista for something other than having to downgrade to Windows XP. It’s been under development and was talked about almost minutes after Vista was launched.

My experience with Windows 7 has been pretty good. The interface is mostly like Vista, so it’s still taken a bit of getting used to in trying to find things and familiarize myself with the operating system. After spending so much time with Windows XP, there’s bound to be a learning adjustment there. I think it’s probably similar to the interface changes that were seen by users switching into the Office 2007 ribbon interface.

My wife has been pleased with her experience for the last few weeks as well. The only real problem I think we’ve experienced is our Lexmark printer driver hasn’t been working for her since she upgraded to Windows 7. We’re hoping that a new driver will be available Thursday as well, if not soon after.

How many of you will be upgrading to Windows 7 as soon as it’s available on Thursday? Are you using Windows Vista now, or Windows XP? What’s the biggest change or improvement you’re looking to take advantage of with the upgrade?

    Just ordered new laptop where upgrade to windows 7 is available. I will definitely upgrade to windows 7. This laptop will be used by my wife, she is switching from windows xp. I am still using windows xp / linux.
    I am wondering how she will get used to windows 7. When I last time gave her linux on her laptop she was quite pleased asking if that is new version of windows :o).
