Microsoft will release its next version of Windows operating system on 22 October to a plethora of high expectations.

The company has been under scrutiny since the worldwide launch of Windows Vista in 2007. The decision left users wondering what Microsoft was thinking?

My positive experience started with Vista, but my interest has steadily decreased over time. He was released when I was in high school and would have done anything to get my hands on it.

At that time, Apple had launched a series of updates to its popular OS X, and was beginning to build my loyalty to Microsoft, and resistance to Apple.

When I finally got my new laptop with Vista, I could not put it down. I was impressed with its novelty and a large number of new features. It seemed that much work and the interface looked even better.

Soon after, however, began to slow start and made me reconsider my initial happiness.

I knew I needed a personal computer for all the quick work of multimedia publishing, I can do as a graphic designer.

So I changed it so you can only support programs that more often.

At the same time, critics said that Vista was Microsoft's biggest mistake yet. Apple was putting ads boasting about how easy it is using your software - working "right of the box.

And who can forget the popular "I'ma Mac vs. I'ma PC" ads featuring a young, informal and relaxed the rules of the Mac into a PC counterpart old, fat and always worried?

With the release of Windows 7, Microsoft fixed all that was wrong with Vista and are even more impressive additions tech-savvy would appreciate.

Started launched their revision when beta candidates earlier this summer. The best thing about Windows 7 is that it offers speed.

The taskbar changed both in appearance and functionality. Not only the house of your applications running and the start menu more. To the right is a bar for a new feature called the aero screen.

Drag your mouse on this to present the outlines of all running programs, this allows you to perform various tasks efficiantly.

It also offers a cleaner desktop while using more than one program.

Simply click and hold the top bar of the current window and give a jolt, it automatically minimizes all windows making everything more organized and thus making it possible to do more.

To restore the minimized windows, just shake the front window again.

There are many more features included in the release of Windows 7, like the fact that one can preview a window before it is opened from the taskbar hangs over it with the mouse.
The wallpaper can be set to change within certain time intervals in the user preference.

In addition, unlike other systems of sharing, it does not need to have storage space online. With Unite, Opera hopes to initiate the creation of new social networks that will be controlled by users themselves and not by others, as is the case with MySpace or Flickr.

The user and retain full control of their data, since they only remain stored on his computer. Available on Windows, Linux, Unix and Mac OS, Opera Unite is currently available in alpha version.

The very first thing one encounters when starting Opera 10 for the first time, it is refreshing the user interface. Opera has been the designer Jon Hicks to join the team for the beautiful people look up to the browser. Aesthetics is always a smaksak, but yours truly seems in any case that Opera 10 stands as a more attractive and far healthier browser.

There you have to take into account is that Opera is a program that is rich in features and suffering in many ways the same problem that the applications in Office suite to Microsoft - which the programs have very many features, but where the challenge lies in create a user interface that makes it easy for the user to access the various functions without being confused. We like what we see in Opera 10.For our part, it seemed as if the user tries to emphasize the new features such as Opera Turbo.


Due to the program's version status, we have not put great emphasis on test performance. A couple of tests we have taken the time to. Opera promises Opera 10 beta is the full 40 percent faster than the current 9.6-release. Under Future Marks Peace Keeper browser program achieved a profit of 1639 points. This is the second best result we have received during this Test.

By comparison, the Opera 9.64 520 points and preview release of version 703 points Tuesday. Although the increase in performance is solid, it is still a good distance up to 2.0 Google Chrome web browser that can view the incredible 2225 points. By comparison, getting 330 points IE8 and Firefox 3.0.10 470 points.

Faster Gmail

In more practical tests are the clear signs of improvement. In particular, Gmail goes very quickly. Here we talk about an improvement approaching two-gangeren. For popular services like Facebook and Twitter were discrepancies in the results so different that we have not chosen to emphasize them in this round. Was probably the server load that created the store in inconsistent results. But in brief, it is still a bit to the super fast Chrome, which is always a taken front of all the browsers on the market.


Opera has recently come in the shadow of Microsoft, Google and Firefox. The latter company has recently been busy launching new final and non-final versions of their browsers. With this beta release of Opera shows the company that they have not rested on our laurels.

Instead, the forces have been used to develop and improve. With this beta version of Opera browser 10 serves all interested a browser that is faster, more attractive and even easier to use than previous generations.

No longer is a beta, Google’s Chrome Web browser a capable contender to Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

However, the search company's browser not have some basic features found in IE, Firefox and Opera, and limits users who want to characterize settings and customize their browser. In spite of its shortcomings, browser users should give Google Chrome a try.

Just a few short months ago, Google surprised the Web world with the make public of the beta of Google Chrome, a new Web browser direct from the search massive itself.
So what does the launch of Google Chrome 1.0 mean for the Web browsing world and the Web in general? Well, the simple fact that it is from Google has a major impact, and should put the browser in a good place to fight with Microsoft and Mozilla for market share.

But what about the browser itself? From a severe usability standpoint, Google Chrome is one of the most attractive and instinctive browsers I have ever used, and is probably the most impressive first version of a browser ever. Once a user gets over some of the foibles and differences from other browser interfaces (such as tabs at the very top of the window and no file menus), Google Chrome quickly begins to feel like the right way to surf the Web.

Hopefully that post will help you any time you need computer repair related news, will get in that blog. Google Chrome also has some other nice touches, such as a hybrid search address bar and integration with Google Gears to provide desktop Web applications. However, not everything about Google Chrome shines brilliantly.

As it has done with previous Internet Explorer (IE) releases, Microsoft has made available an IE 8 blocking toolkit to allow users to keep Microsoft’s browser from being downloaded automatically on their Windows machines.

In a January 6 posting to the Microsoft IE blog, company officials noted that Microsoft is planning to push the final IE 8 release via its Automatic Update (AU), Windows Update (WU) and Microsoft Update (MU) update systems. To keep the release from being pushed, customers can download the blocker toolkit from the Microsoft Download Center.

Unlike some previous versions of the toolkit, there is no expiration date on the latest blocker. The toolkit can be configured by running the registry file on client machines or via Group Policy, according to the IE 8 blog posting.

Once the final IE 8 bits are ready, Microsoft is planning to mark them as a top priority for distribution, officials said via the blog entry:
“The IE8 update will be released as the highest priority update for each operating system. For Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, it will be listed as Important. For Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, the update will be listed as High Priority. Delivery of IE8 via AU will begin after we make IE8 available from the Microsoft Download Center. Of course, users can always decline to install IE8 through AU when it is offered.”

Microsoft hasn’t provided a final release target date for IE 8, other than to say some time in 2009. Late last year, company officials acknowledged Microsoft would not be releasing the final version of IE 8 before the end of calendar 2008, as some company officials had claimed previously. Instead, Microsoft is planning to distribute in the first quarter of 2009 one more public test release, Release Candidate 1, before it rolls out the final IE 8.

I’m not sure if we’ll see RC 1 of IE 8 this week. While Microsoft is expected to release the official version of Windows 7 Beta 1 to private and public testers over course of the next three days, the build of IE8 that is part of Windows 7 Beta 1 is still Beta 2, company officials said on January 7. (The refreshed partner test build of IE 8 that Microsoft released privately in December was designated as “RC1″ but isn’t the official RC1 release, the Softies have said.)
When I asked earlier this week, Microsoft officials wouldn’t comment on when IE 8 RC1 would go live.
