Windows 7 – Windows Vista with New Marketing

January 31, 2009

A client of Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans proudly displayed his installation of Microsoft Windows 7 Beta, the successor to Microsoft Windows Vista. Windows 7 is supposedly loaded with new features, such as boot or startup performance advancements, touch, speech and handwriting recognition developments, virtual hard disk support, multi-core processor improvements, and kernel upgrading, to name a few.

The Window’s 7 desktop sports a new look and some contend the taskbar is greatly improved.  However, a check of the operating system’s build is 6.1.7000.  Some are contending Windows 7 is simply a revamped and remarketed Windows Vista (known as Windows 6).  Windows 7 utilizes the same device drivers and includes many other features found Windows Vista.  Is Windows 7 simply a marketing trick similar to ‘Mojave?’

It will be interesting to note how Windows 7 will integrate into an existing configuration of Small Business Server 2003, Windows XP, and many printers released before 2007.  Hopefully Microsoft learned a lesson from the incompatibility issues of Microsoft Vista: If Windows 7 is not ‘plug-and-play’ with existing business networks and software, then businesses may not readily incur the expense of upgrading existing systems, especially in the present economic environment.  Do you think Windows 7 will succeed where Windows Vista failed?
