Windows 7 Just keeps Getting Better
As most people are aware, Windows 7 went RTM and is now available to TechNet Subscribers (and many of those that took part in the Beta program). First impressions are that it feels even faster than the RC release! It installed flawlessly. Easy as.
This is simply, the best OS Microsoft have ever released.

Interestingly, my disk score has fallen 0.1 points, which is shame as it’s the slowest component. Rather surprising, given that it’s an SSD (and one with a reasonably high performance). I feel a bit of tweaking coming on…
So never mind your poser laptop with the nerdy cover light! Can it compete with a real PC? ;)
