When you get older you’re supposed to get more conservative. That’s what I thought I was doing but with my behaviour yesterday and today may indicate I’m no wiser than a little child (and just as happy as one too). Yes all this verbal nonsense to say that I’ve joined the Windows 7 crowd. For those of you who don’t know, Windows released a public beta of their next generation operating system yesterday. Admittedly I’ve only been playing with this new OS for 1 day but man does it feel stable. Faster? Yes faster too but that may be misleading because I’m now booting off of a solid state hard drive. Between the two changes it is a bit shocking how quickly things load up. I’ve still got a dual boot so I can run under Vista if required but after my experience of the past 36 hours I think I’ll rarely take that option. Here’s to being young, taking chances, and running Windows 7.
