Why should you upgrade to Microsoft Windows® 7?
Are you still using Windows XP? Have you considered upgrading to Windows 7 yet? Windows 7 is the current flagship operating system by Microsoft. Here are a few reasons why you should consider upgrading if you haven’t already.
Because Microsoft has sold 400 million copies of Windows 7 already - What does that number tell you? It’s a testimony to the fact that people trust and are happy with Windows 7. Â It is a much better and improved offering as compared to their old operating systems. Market penetration surveys have revealed that consumers, both individuals and corporate, are shifting from Windows XP to Windows 7 at an increasingly faster rate.
Because it is simpler, sleeker and faster – Are you aware that amongst its predecessors, Windows 7 takes the least time to boot? You would love the first impression that it makes. However, it does not stop at the first impression; the performance in general is superlative when compared to XP. The file transfer, or time taken to open applications, or other processes, Windows 7 wins hand down.
Because it has new features - Gadgets, jump lists, HomeGroup, Windows Live, and Taskbar are just a few of the many new, better and improvised features of Windows 7. Use Windows 7 Gadgets to access applications, music, news, RSS feeds, or system monitoring applications right from your desktop. Jump lists help you manage, access files, and applications right from the taskbar. These jump lists differ from application to application. This means that you would have a separate jump list for Explorer and another one for Windows Media Player.
Because it has Aero - How many years will it take for you to get bored of the same old look of the XP desktop? Or are you already bored? A translucent design, animations, and new colors in Windows 7 will make you see your desktop in a new light. With the Shake effect, you may shake a window on the desktop, and it would automatically minimize all the other open windows. The snap effect lets you drag an open window to the edge of the screen in order to maximize it, and when you want the window back in its original shape – just drag it back. Enjoy all these and many other features only with Aero in Windows 7.
Because in approximately 1000 days there would be no official support for XP – It’s official. Microsoft has announced that support for Windows XP will be terminated from April 2014. You may have to then upgrade to Windows 7, or other versions that Windows might release then in order to ensure smooth sailing. Like they say, the sooner the better.
