So far then, Windows 7 gets a tentative blessing although it needs to be tested using RAID drives, external hard drives and many types of printers before we would commit fully. The signs though are good - good enough to start thinking about building a full machine and giving it a real hammering. Thus far we found W7 a bit pedestrian using Photoshop and we are not sure if it is the laptop restricting things or the drop down from 64-bit. Time will tell, watch this space. Windows 7 seems to be the program that Vista should have been in the first place. There is no need for us to forgive Microsoft for producing such a poor release with Vista, we simply never bought it in droves and have punished them in their pockets - they seem to have learned their lesson, perhaps next time the engineers will hold sway over the bean-counters and the launches will be made when the software is actually ready, not when the balance books demand an inrush of revenue.
