Windows 7: Should I upgrade?
If you’re still using Windows XP or Vista, now would be a great time to consider upgrading to Windows’ latest operating system. Windows 7 offers a vast amount of improvement over its predecessors and looks fantastic to boot.
Among the reasons to upgrade:
Increased compatibility with peripherals and hardware
More Intuitive Searching
Ease of Navigation
If you are running a Windows XP machine now, upgrading to Windows 7 also gives you the ability to run more than 4 Gb or RAM on a 64-bit operating system. What’s this mean? It means that you can take full advantage of multi-core processors and screaming-fast performance for things like gaming, video editing, and mutli-tasking.
Windows 7 fixed some of the issues in its Vista debacle, and in our opinion, was simply done right. Windows 7 recognizes just about any piece of hardware you plug in to it and doesn’t nag you with endless security prompts like its sibling.
It’s our belief that Windows 7, teamed with a multi-core processor and ample memory, will not suffer the 2-year cycle of obsolescence we’ve seen in the past. That is to say, you won’t find yourself needing to upgrade your hardware for many years to come.
