Just received e-letter from MS and it mentioned that MS has free AntiVirus software for Vista and Win7.

This software is called Microsoft Security Essentials.

I just installed. It looks good.

Reviews: Windows 7 Utlimate

Before installing Windows 7, a lot of friends commented that. It is faster that Windows Vista and it has a lot of improvement that Windows Vista.

When my first touch to Windows 7, my feeling is “It is a Vista”.

After navigating it, it is a Vista. Not much different !!

For my Vista box, I have done a large amount of performance tuning to it. It includes Network and system tuning.

So, I cannot feel a big improvement when I use Windows 7.

I do not have an exciting feeling to Windows 7 as when I used Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

In Windows 2000 and Windows XP, it showed a lot of improvement for me. E.g. Kerbose, Windows Firewall, Remote Desktop.

In Windows 7, it seems facing bottleneck.

Overall comments:
1. If I can have choice, I will stay with WinXP
2. Win7 is an improved Window Vista. I don’t think it is a new version.

Reviews: Windows 7 – Virtual PC and WinXP Mode Comments

Just have time to re-install my Vista box to Windows 7.

My initial planning is using Windows 7 Virtual PC for my PoC Lab testing.

After I have installed Win7 and configured the Virtual PC. I found that it is only support Win32 Virtual Machine.

I am very disappeared to it.

And the so-called killer feature “WinXP Mode”. My comment is “that is a marketing word”.

It is a monster for pushing customer moving to Win7.

The cost is very high to maintain 2 OSs for every users.

Overall comments:
1. The interface of Virtual PC for Windows 7 is not good
2. It does not support 64bit platform OS.
3. Monster “WinXP mode” sound attractive. But actually, it is quite difficult to maintain it.
