It’s something few people have ever said about Vista, but it looks like it could become a widespread phrase soon:
“Windows 7 is better than XP”
There will of course be a certain group of people who will refuse to admit that is even possible however I and many others have been saying it for a while now-and now Engadget have reports of something approaching proof!
Adrian Kingley-Hughes from ZDNet compared XP, Vista and Windows 7 at performing everyday tasks such as “boot up, shut down, file maneuvers, installations and other common tasks” and “On both test systems, an AMD Phenom 9700 setup and an Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2200 number (with ATI and NVIDIA graphics, respectively), the Windows 7 install soundly bested XP and Vista task by task, with few exceptions.”.
While this isn’t an exact science, it’s certainly very indicative of how things will be once Win 7 is released-and it’s looking good 🙂 Especially considering that this is the Beta of Windows 7 that’s being tested so one would assume that it’s final RTM (Release to Manufacturing) version will be even slicker.
It seems that Microsoft are really onto a good thing here…I can’t wait!
