Windows 7

There is no disputing that Microsoft Windows Vista was poor. Vista made changes to the file system, user interface and other critical components of the operating system that were essential. Unfortunately, such changes meant that Vista had major compatibility problems. The early days of Vista were plagued with complaints about peripherals that no longer worked because there were no compatible drivers available. Older programs also began to malfunction.

Windows 7 was released early. The official retail release date of Windows 7 was October 22, 2009.

Windows 7 is more refined than Vista, but there is no ignoring the fact that, in many ways, Windows 7 is fundamentally different from XP. The taskbar is completely different, and the user interface has many other large changes. You’ll also find a plethora of security solutions that were not present in Windows Vista or XP.

Those coming from Vista will have it easier. Although Microsoft has been doing its best to distance itself from Vista, Windows 7 is not entirely that different. Many features, like Windows Aero and User Account Control, still exist. The new taskbar will require some adjustment, but you’re in familiar territory.

Windows 7 System Requirements

Windows 7 does have some minimum system requirements that your computer must meet in order for Windows 7 to run smoothly (or at all). They are as follows:


• 1 gigahertz processor

• 2 gigabyte of RAM

• 30 gigabyte of space (for 32-bit) or 60 gigabyte of space (for 64-bit) hard drive

• DirectX 9 compatible graphics processor


If you have not upgraded yet you can use the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to examine your computer’s compatibility with Windows 7. The Upgrade Advisor will do a complete examination on your PC and let you know if anything on your computer is incompatible with Windows 7.

Windows 7 End of Life

Windows 7 is due to expire in January 2020 after 10 years of sterling service!
