Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 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)

Your PC, simplified. You told us what you want in a PC. We listened. And made hundreds of little improvements and a few big ones that add up to a whole lot less. Less waiting, fewer clicks, and less complexity. With less of what you don’t need, Windows 7 helps you do more. More work, more play, and more of everything in between. Making every task simpler and every day easier...
