An Overview of the New Windows: Will It Be "Lucky Seven?"
"Fewer than three years since Windows Vista shipped, Microsoft has not only shipped the next desktop Windows, ""Windows 7,"" but it has also released a new version of Windows Server -- the first new desktop/server simultaneous release in about ten years. Will Windows 7 capture the audience interest in ways that Windows Vista could not? Well, there's a lot to like in Windows 7, including some productivity-oriented GUI changes, nearly ubiquitous PowerShell support, new deployment tools, a ""VPN-less VPN,"" new bandwidth-saving technologies, an Active Directory undelete function and more, so there's something in Windows 7 for almost everyone. With that said, money's tight and heck, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are familiar, reliable tools... so even if Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 are good, are they good enough to make you leave your current operating systems behind?
