Microsoft Windows 7 is Released Today

Whether you love Microsoft or hate them, this is a big day for them as they have officially released their latest operating system: Windows 7.  Initial reviews have been mostly favorable (then again, they were favorable for Windows Vista also).  

There are two major flavors of Windows 7, a 32 bit and 64 bit.  (You must have a 64 bit procesor to install 64 bit Windows 7).  Then there are three sub-versions of this operating system: Home Premium, Professional and Ultimate.  To compare the differences of these versions, click here.Compare Windows 7

Minimum requirements for Windows 7 is at least: a 1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor, 512 MB of system memory, 20 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space, Support for DirectX 9 graphics and 32 MB of, graphics memory, DVD-ROM drive, Audio Output, Internet access. (More RAM is recommended).

For those with Windows Vista an upgrade is possible (but clean installs of a new operating system is always recommended).  While those with Windows XP or earlier will need to do a clean install and re-install all programs and data.

Michael, I just wont participate in the MAC vs Microsoft debate.  Each is free to use the system of their choice.

Gabe, I saw them on sale at Costco yesterday. They even have a multi ack upgrade. I just recently bought a laptop with Vista and I am still trying to get used to it. I wonder how long till sp2 comes out. Seems to be pretty common with Microsoft products.

Randy, I'd upgrade to Win 7 if you have a recent laptop.  It's supposed to be pretty stable.  All operating systems have service packs (including MAC OS's)

Direct X Graphics throws me in the system requirements. Unsue if I have that in my one year old laptop. I picked up a Windows7 copy yesterday but was unaware that is starting from scratch on XP. This means I would need to use one of my newest laptops with Vista but I am concered about glitches with various Real Estate programs. How do you like it so far?
