Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit
What we think
Some flaws in design, but playing heroes with a limited lifespan provides interesting decisions and choices.
Reasons to buy
- + Improved performance
- + Pinned icons
- + Live thumbnails
- + Jump lists and window snaps make Aero useful as well as attractive
- + New ways of organising files with libraries
- + Improved backup
- + Less annoying notifications
Reasons to avoid
- - XP Mode isn't an integrated option yet
- - Microsoft backed down on libraries and Ctrl-E brings up My Computer instead
- - You can't add NAS drives to libraries
- - Ultimate edition is almost unnecessary except for adding BitLocker – which should be in the Professional Edition – and rather expensive (as are the Anytime Upgrades)
- - Yes, it's what Vista should have been (but it's more than that)
