Microsoft’s most awaited operating system i.e. Windows 7 is finally launched. The RTM i.e. release to manufacturing was launched just one month before for technet & msdn subscribers and for other OEMs , and here its final retail version available on 22nd oct 09.
After bad performance of Windows vista, Microsoft was looking for someone who will take place of its flagship product i.e. Windows XP. Microsoft already stopped retail sales of windows XP and also moved its support from mainstream support to extended support. In 2014 microsoft will end support for windows XP family and updates & security releases will be terminated.
Windows vista was one of the major flop in Microsoft’s history, but still it is the one who gave new look and feel to Microsoft’s windows lineup. Its awesome Aero looks and many such features gave a windows a new and fresh look.
Taking all good points from Windows vista, Microsoft developed a new operating system called windows 7. Windows vista bootup time was very high but here at windows 7, its very less. Microsoft improved many such features of windows vista to make this featured packed Windows 7.
