Microsoft Windows 7 was arguably one of the most important launches in Microsoft’s long and storied history. According to Steve Ballmer in a recent Worldwide Partner Conference, 400 million Windows 7 licenses have been sold so far. Even so, Windows XP still dominates the operating system.
When it comes to the Windows OS, we have to mention the upcoming operating system of Microsoft, Windows 8, which will be available in 2012. Now many uses are hesitate about whether to update to Windows 7 immediately or wait for the forthcoming Windows 8?
For this problem, Microsoft suggests that users should switch to Windows 7, rather than to wait for Windows 8. “The way to get to the future (Windows 8) is to embrace the present, namely Windows 7.” said Tami Reller, Corporate Vice President and CFO, Windows & Windows Live.
“The path to Windows 8 starts with Windows 7. It's the perfect time for customers to update their environment, modern hardware, a modern OS, modern applications and a modern browser. Together, we can add measureable value to customers by helping them get to Windows 7, Office 2010, IE9, all on the latest server infrastructure. The time is right now to lay the foundation for the future,” Reller said.
Believe it or not, many uses will ignore this suggestion. In my regard, no matter what decisions users make, it’s important to add a strong windows password to protect their computer data from prying eyes. A Windows password reset disk is also necessary as many Windows users get in trouble as result of a lost windows password.
