Windows 7 is Really Cool

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

This past weekend I tested out a version of Windows 7.  I am not a tech geek.  Overall, my experience as a "regular guy" user of Vista was ok.  It worked fine but I didn't fall in love with it.  Windows 7 is much smoother and easier for me to use.  As someone convinced that there are security breaches everywhere, I like the added security features that Windows 7 provides.

Dear Twitter, every once in a while I include non-antitrust posts. It includes the most trafficked postings on the blog (Antitrust look-alikes and the post on Antitrust and Yom Kipur).

Overall, my love of Windows 7 is shared here at UF. UF law did not upgrade to Vista and is leapfrogging to Windows 7 from XP.

Windows 7 is another outrageous anti-competitive effort by the evil ones at MS. When you attempt to network with other computers, you will eventually find the following:
Computers must be running Windows 7 to participate in a homegroup. HomeGroup is available in all editions of Windows 7. In Windows 7 Starter and Windows 7 Home Basic, you can join a homegroup, but you can’t create one.

In other words, MS has intentionally installed a block in W7 to prevent what would otherwise be easy, a network connection to older computers. Why? To sell more computers and versions of W7. Just to make it more obvious, they even made up a new word for network, "homegroup", newspeak if I ever heard it. Gates and his apparatchiks are stuck in 1984.
