You can also have two hard drives in your system and keep one for the operating system and the one for saving your files and data.

Does Windows 7 stand Tallest Amongst the OS!

Microsoft Windows 7 has been in the market for almost an year now. And there is no doubt that the operating system has been a success overall attracting a great deal of people to migrate to the operating system. The much attractive Windows Vista was not able to attract these many people towards the OS. Instead Windows Vista was more like a curse for Microsoft in the market. The engineers and their teams were cursed by many users around the world for the security problems that it had. Windows 7 made the people around the world believe that Microsoft is still able to deliver a solid Operating system.

The Competition

This is a real competitive world and everything has to stay in the competition to do quality business altogether. Likewise, Windows Vista has to compete Mac OS and Linux and there might be a lot of people who will find this to be the best amongst all. There are many of the domains where Windows 7 rule while there are others where Windows 7 needs to improve to be the best in all the traits.

Microsoft has recently announced it to be the superior OS compared to MAC OS X and Linux in the Microsoft;s Worldwide Developers Conference 2010 (WDC) this year. They also stated that Microsoft has sold more then 150 million licenses for Windows 7 ever since it has been released into the market. This certainly set it to be a distinct operating system.

Another comparison that certainly gives an edge to the Windows 7 operating system is the compatibility issues. Windows 7 certainly has a huge amount of applications that are compatible for the file system and can run spontaneously with no issues at all. There are the most critical applications designed for Windows 7 as compared to any of the Mac OS X or even Linux. When it comes to the comparison, applications do make a lot of difference and that is what sets Windows 7 on the top of the list. Apple is more concentrating on making applications for the iPhone, iPod and iPad on the App store then for the Mac OS X.

Mac has got an excellent user experience and you will hardly ever fall into a hardware incompatibility in the MAC OS while Linux does provide you a number of applications that are very essential with fast boot up and quick responses bundled with ultimate security. These are the domains where Windows 7 lacks.

Windows 7 on the Whole

Windows 7 on the overall was a great achievement of Microsoft after the release and the cold response on Windows Vista. It has all the elements that needs to be there in a modern operating system with the tools and technology defining greater standards altogether. There are many of the critic opinion that Windows 7 has many of the interface lifts of the Mac OS X and even if they have done that, they were quite successful in lifting the operating system to a great deal making it to be a standard in terms of the interface.

You can an overall excellent build operating system in terms of the interface while the experience is vibrant at the same time. Microsoft made a sensible move this time to test the operating system with a number of beta release prior to the final release just to make sure that everything was running in fine tone. There was a beta test for Windows Vista as well but that didn’t last longer and probably that is the reason to the failure of the OS in getting an overwhelming response.

Acer No Chrome OS device from us at Computex

Acer will shortly introduce its first Chrome operating system (OS) device. Multiple sources on blog sites had mentioned this news but no one had specified the type of device. Actually, Google was the first that introduced the first Chrome operating system (OS) last year. Google has designed this operating system for Tablets, Smartbooks and Netbooks. Acer already had made a statement that they are working on a Netbook that will overshadow the Chrome operating system designed by Google. They had also mentioned that they will launch this new Netbook in the middle of 2010. Acer’s Chairman, J.T. Wang mentioned that “Acer will be the first company who will introduce Chrome operating system based device”. Acer is the first PC manufacturing company who committed to work on the manufacturing of Chrome operating System (OS) based device.

In the month of November, Dell has also started to work on manufacturing a Chrome operating system (OS) device, Mini-10V Netbook. But this Netbook is still under process. Like Dell, Android is also talking about the manufacturing of a Chrome OS based device. But here interesting thing is that Android is dealing with Smart Phones and Chrome OS is only suitable for Tablets, Smartbooks and Netbooks. So in reality it is bit difficult for the coexisting of Android with Chrome operating systems.

Acer who had committed last year that they will soon launch its first Chrome operating system device has now made a new modified statement on Monday. Acer has now refused the news that “they will launch a Chrome operating System device within next two weeks.” Acer has now committed that they don’t have any plan to introduce a Chrome operating System device in a near future. It has also announced that “Acer always looks for new experiences and tries to discover such innovative things that enhance the overall performance of its products and services”. In addition to this, Acer has also announced that “they are closely watching the Google’s strategy related to its product and will surely work on Google Chrome Operating system in the future but at this time they don’t have any immediate plan for the launching of such kind of device”.

All these above statements of Acer authorities suggest that Acer is now desperately trying to detach itself from its earlier statement that was made in last year by its Chairman that “Acer will be the first company who will introduce Chrome operating System based device”. But now Acer is saying that they are just trying to follow the progress and development of Chrome operating system and Google’s other products. Acer has also signed an agreement with Google to help him in making its particular operating systems for mobile devices. On the other hand, Google has cleared it many times that Chrome operating system will not be available for Notebook devices until the end of year 2010. Now it is clear that this operating system will not be available before the starting of next year.
