I’m taking a break from the world of Linux for a couple of weeks and giving Windows 7 a proper test drive. I installed it temporarily a couple of weeks ago, but didn’t play with it long enough to form a proper opinion.
So far – and I’m literally just a couple of hours in – my experience has been very positive. It’s snappier than Windows Vista, and the interface is cleaner and easier to get to grips with. The only application compatibility issue I’ve had is with OpenOffice.org, and I think that might be fixed in a patch I’m currently downloading.
