Windows 7 is the hottest topic on the internet now. So I can’t help writing another article about it. Does windows 7 reach a goal that vista cannot, although Bill Gates thought it would? Besides, where is windows xp’s future?
Windows 7 was officially available to the public in October of 2009, which is the latest public release version of Microsoft Windows. Microsoft is hoping it can avoid the negative press that surrounded the launch of Vista, almost three years ago. Compared with Windows XP, do you think Windows 7 is better than Windows XP?
With the launch of Windows XP in 2001, we thought we were poised on a brink of a new world of NT-based goodness. So many people have been big fans of XP for a long time even though the new Windows 7 has released. According to a survey, the reason is that they think Windows XP is still the best choice for an operating system. Sure Windows 7 and Vista look nicer, but in terms of performance, they think XP is the one to go with on average. But it is a real fact : Windows 7 is simply the best version of Windows you can get.
Windows 7’s advantage
Windows 7 includes a number of new features, such as advances in touch and handwriting recognition, support for virtual hard disks, improved performance on multi-core processors, improved boot performance, DirectAccess, and kernel improvements. Moreover, Windows 7 is vastly more secure than XP and, in any case, the threat landscape has changed since XP was trashed by worms such as Blaster and Slammer. On the other hand, Vista's girth and bloat make it a no-op for NetBooks. XP fills that role today just fine (as does Linux, btw). Both Windows 7's improved performance and its ability to be slimmed down into smaller OS disto's means Windows 7 can easily replace Windows XP as the default NetBook OS.
A Little trick of windows 7 that xp haven’t
Shake your desktop free of clutter
If you frequently run multiple programs simultaneously, your desktop can get extremely cluttered. This can get annoying if you're working on one program and want to minimize all the other windows — in previous versions of Windows you had to minimize them individually.
With Windows 7's "shake" feature, though, you can minimize every window except the one in which you're currently working — in a single step. Click and hold the title bar of the window you want to keep on the desktop; while still holding the title bar, shake it quickly back and forth until all of the other windows minimize to the taskbar. Then let go. To make them return, shake the title bar again.
You can accomplish the same thing by pressing the Window key-Home key combination — although doing that is not nearly as much fun.
Reset Windows Password

What is the future of windows xp?
Mircosoft said:“We know you love Windows XP and you’re in good company. Hundreds of millions of Windows XP users are fans of the operating system, and many depend on Windows XP to run legacy applications and hardware not yet compatible with Windows Vista. Even though we’re retiring Windows XP, we won’t leave you hanging. Microsoft Support Lifecycle explains it all.
You can still buy new PCs and use Windows XP. Windows Vista Business and Windows Vista Ultimate have downgrade rights that let you return your operating system to Windows XP. We plan to provide support for Windows XP until 2014.”
It means windows xp is retiring.
Anyway, Windows 7 is generally good, and some Windows fans are supportive of it. However , it is a long way for Windows 7 from being perfect. Microsoft's business depends on running millions of programs that stretch back decades, supporting vast numbers of peripherals, and providing a platform for thousands of competing manufacturers who make everything from handhelds and tablet PCs to racks of data-centre mainframes. That's just the baggage Windows carries.
In my opinion, the one meeting your need smoothly is the best choice for you. So if you're happy with XP, you don’t have to upgrade to Windows 7. And now I am enjoying my windows 7 after using window xp for years.
