Belated but requisite Windows 7 post

A tech blog just isn’t a tech blog without the requisite post about Windows 7; thus here is my belated entry.

I recently bought an HP Slimline AMD Athlon 7750 Dual Core 2.7 GHz processor and upgraded the OS to high-end Windows 7 version. It’s functioning as the family multimedia PC in the “entertainment room”. It’s nice. Runs much better than the beta did on an old 512M Optiplex scratch box.

I don’t see my IT department installing this anywhere in Production for a long time though. Not because of anything unique to Windows 7, but it’s hard to justify the upgrade in this economy and when XP is still plugging along just fine.
