Over the last few months I’ve been reading everything I could get my hands on about Windows 7, in order to prepare myself for supporting yet ANOTHER version of the Windows Operating System. (Can you tell I’m just thrilled?)
Windows 7, according to all the “techie magazines” will start appearing pre-installed on new computers beginning October 22, 2009. Read this article for more information.
So with the news, I’ve decided that I need to jump on the band wagon and build a “test” machine using the Windows 7 Release Candidate (a “Release candidate ” is the version that is the last beta or test version that is released prior to a “final release” for the general public”. )
I’ll be posting updates as I work with the new version of Windows. But as always; we recommend that you do not run right out and buy the newest or latest & greatest version of anything.
I’m anticipating trouble with obtaining drivers for some of my existing equipment (which really isn’t all that old) and I’ll tell ya, I’m NOT looking forward to this; so be on the look out for “rants” in the upcoming weeks.
