IE 10 was originally designed to run in Windows 8 and now it has been tested and could be stable to run in Windows 7.
IE 10 is claimed to be at least 20% faster than IE 9.It could also support 60% more web standards than IE 9(CSS 3 transformation,animations,gradients etc).It enhances the security features such as Do Not Track enabled by default.Of course,the test result will be better than IE 9.
Microsoft will put into auto updates in the coming weeks.That means if you’re running genuine Windows 7 and enabling Windows Update,you will get it soon to replace IE 9,getting better web surfing experience(if you’re still IE fans).
If you don’t want to wait,you could download from windows.microsoft.com/ieand install it by your own.It could be fairly simple.
I went to Lowyat Plaza buying a piece of Windows 7 Home Premium(32bit+64bit DVD) at RM469 yesterday.As I’m going to buy a new computer in the near month,so I need to have one more copy of Windows to install on that PC.
RM469 is still a promotional price and the official retail price is RM525.I installed this brand new operating system into my 4-year-old Lenovo laptop.It took approximately 30 minutes from reassigning the hard disk to completing the installation.Window 7 can recognize most drivers for the hardware,so it saved quite a lot of time on this part.
The only issue I met is for the audio driver.The Windows driver can make it work and so I spent several hours to look for a latest driver which is compatible to Windows 7.However,I was not so lucky.After all,I decided to use Vista driver and manually installed it and it worked half of the function-I could get sounds from speakers,but my internal microphone didn’t work.
Anyway,Windows 7 is really faster a lot than Windows Vista and better on arranging the resources too.Now I’m going to solve the microphone problem.I wish I could work it out.Or anyone wanna help me?
Officially Windows 7 released on October 23rd worldwide.However,I couldn’t find the track of Windows 7 on that day.Well,finally I get the news saying Windows 7 was in town on November 2nd,7-day late to land in Malaysia.
The prices for Windows 7 in Malaysia are labeled at US dollar and so we have to exchange them into Ringgit Malaysia by the given exchange rate US$1 = RM3.75.
Estimated retail price
*Note:The above prices are for full pack(retail version).
I know Windows 7 is of good performance and better security,but it’s still quite expensive.I’m now waiting for PC fair where may provide some promotions.
Actually Apple always does it,especially in the advertisements.They have enough creativities to cut Microsoft into single pieces.It’s Apple’s style,killing people by words.The latest advertisement from Apple is going to kill Microsoft’s popular baby-Windows 7.
It counts all past broken promises from Microsoft and implies that Windows 7 will continue having those messy.I don’t know whether it is the truth because I haven’t used it.If you’re having Windows 7 now,what is your real experience?I don’t want to hear that it’s exactly the same as the ad expresses.
Microsoft officially introduces Windows 7 in every country at the same time.It seems that Microsoft pays a lot of spirits on Windows 7 and has its great hope on this new member of Windows.I believe there should be some promotional events in the recent days to sell Windows 7 at a special price.However,this kind of events always accompany with crowds that I will never like.
If you hate the crowds and don’t mind the price,you could try to get your piece of Windows 7 online because Microsoft online store is selling Windows 7 too.Both upgrade and full version are available there and also you are allowed to download it to USB/DVD or ask for a back-up disc with a bit more money,even asking for shipping to your door.
It is quite convenient,right?But I’m not satisfied with the current product line yet.Here are my issues:
I personally have 2 computers.One installs Windows XP Professional and another installs Windows Vista Home Premium.According to what I know,I can only upgrade the operating system to the corresponding versions(ie. Windows Vista Home Premium only can be upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium).That means if I want to upgrade both systems,I can’t buy a family pack instead of two packs of Windows 7 as the family pack can be used on Home edition.I have to pay more.
The family pack is only available on upgrade version,no full version available.That means if I want to install Windows 7 directly into 2 computers,I have to buy 2 pieces of Windows 7 full version.
I don’t know why Microsoft is not willing to send out sweeties to all potential customers.Windows 7 is attractive,but I don’t want to get it so soon.
2 days later,Windows 7 will be officially in the market.I think a lot of Windows users want to upgrade the operating system into Windows 7 because it could provide better performances,visual looks and more great functions compared to Windows Vista and Windows XP.However,some old hardware may not be supported by the new operating system well.Thus,to download Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and run it could let you know whether your PC works perfectly with Windows 7.
Please connect and turn on all devices which you may use in your system,such as the webcam,printer,scanner and so on before you start the check.
It took only 1 minute to show the final result.From the result on checking the compatibility of Windows 7 in my current system,I’m just recommended to do some software adjustments before upgrade.That could be just a simple job.As my computer has been 3 years old,I think Windows 7 should be quite friendly in terms of compatibility.
So guys,please run Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor before upgrading Windows 7.In fact,I think that is a must-do procedure.
