The Windows 7 Experience Up to Now

Image
Ah well, I have been running Windows 7 now for a good couple of weeks so thought it may be prudent to breifly share my experiences.

Is it that different to Vista? In terms of how it looks, it is definitely an evolution rather than a revolution. The general look is more or less the same really as are many of the functions such as being able to hit the start key and then filter for the app / file that you want ect.. The control panel is more or less the same as well.

The big obvious difference is the task bar, the programs have now been grouped together underneath icons which can hold several instances of a program (for example a load of Excel workbooks under the Excel logo or a load of IE windows under the IE logo).


I think I really like this feature. I say I think becuase just recently it has been annoying me a little bit. It definitely means you can have lots of different programs open without the desktop and taskbar feeling to crowded, the only thing is it turns some jobs into 2 clicks…
