Windows 7

So, this week, I downloaded the Beta edition of Windows 7. Windows 7 is the new operating system Microsoft is working on to release towards the end of this year. So far, it's been pretty cool. I'm trying it out on my old laptop, so it's definitely not going to run as well as it would on a newer, average system, but it's working a lot better than I thought it would. It's actually running better than XP right now. How crazy is that? Anyway, here's a couple of screenshots of the Desktop, Start Menu, Libraries screen, and Computer screen, as well as a shot of Microsoft Word (it's not a new version...still Office 2007). Enjoy!

Desktop Screenshot, feature the Betta fish (get it...Windows 7 Beta--Betta're so funny, Microsoft)

Start Menu. One of the features of Windows 7 is that the Quick Launch toolbar is integrated into the Taskbar. You can see the icons just to the right of the Windows icon.

Libraries are another new can put all of your pictures, videos, music, etc. into libraries even if they're from different folders.

The Computer screen (formerly My Computer) shows the drives and how much space they're using.

Microsoft Word...nothing new here.
