ZOMG! ZOMG! It’s here!
I totally didn’t expect them to come through, but my computer arrived this morning. Wheeeeooooo! This thing kicks fifty or sixty different kinds of ass.
I’m a Microsoft hater from way back and I gotta tell you, I love Windows 7 so far. This is an operating system designed for me — the weasel with the short attention span and a bzillion different application windows open at the same time.
Desktop cluttered? Take the one window you want and shake it, and all the others minimize themselves. Shake it again, they come back. Drag a window to the top, it maximizes itself. Drag one window off the left of the screen, one off the right, and they each size themselves to half the screen (fantastic for comparing two documents).
The taskbar has been reworked, too. It’s excellent.
It looks and feels a lot like Linux now — desktop-wise, at least — but that’s nothing but good, sez me. I love Linux, only I could never get all the bugs shook out.
Anyhow, I have a TON of stuff to do, as usual with a new machine. Like fire up HalfLife2 and shoot me some aliens.
