Do you have the newest PC operating software available? If so, you are running Windows 7. If not, you may be running Windows Vista, Windows XP, or an even earlier operating system. Many sources reviewed Windows Vista negatively, losing Microsoft countless customers after its late 2007 release. However, if you are one of those PC users who never gave Windows another chance, or you have simply never used Windows 7, read on and reconsider! Windows 7 gives users a faster, smarter, and simply a more exciting platform on which to use your PC.
The overall look of Windows is 7 significantly improved, including a newly retooled taskbar, new wallpapers, and handy new features like Snap, Shake, and Peek that give users unprecedented control. For example, simply drag a window to either side of the screen and watch as it "snaps" to fit that half of the screen perfectly. You can also aim your cursor over a minimized window to see a translucent preview of its contents. These great new features go on and on.
