Windows 7 Upgrade Release Date Moved Up

Microsoft’s newest operating system, Windows 7, is scheduled to be released on October 22, 2009. However there are rumors that the product will begin shipping before that date. It’s not often that Microsoft releases a product early. Then again, in my opinion, Windows 7 is Vista with a face lift and a few service packs installed. If you are like many of us that hate don’t care for Vista, you can pre-order your copy now at a discount.


Windows Vista Service Pack 2 RC

windows-vistaMicrosoft released Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 and Windows Vista Service Pack 2 RC on March 4, 2009 and is available for download. A list of Notable changes in the new service pack include improved compatibility with some hardware and software. I would personally like to see a service pack that would make Vista suck less. But, if you are going to test out this Release Candidate (RC) make sure you have backed up your system prior to installing the service pack. Microsoft service packs sometimes blow up machines. It would be best if you can make a Ghost image of your machine. Clonezilla is an open source disk cloning tool similar to Symantec Ghost that you can use for this step.
