Windows 7 is out
Big news from Microsoft today, Windows 7 is officially launched today.
Similar to the very complicated editions used in Windows Vista almost 3 years ago, Microsoft Windows 7 is going to have Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Home Basic, Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Enterprise, and the most powerful Windows 7 Ultimate. On top of those, there are 32-bit and 64-bit versions to choose from. In comparison, life is very easy with Mac OS X Snow Leopard. It runs on Macs with Intel CPU, and there's no so many different editions, nor the different packages for 32-bit or 64-bit OS.
The price of Windows 7 is not cheap. Starting at $199.99 (USD) for the most basic Windows 7 Starter to the very expensive $319.99 (USD) for the Windows 7 Ultimate. Just for the record, the Windows Vista Ultimate was priced at $399.99 (USD) initially. Our friend Don has a copy of Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate.
Without a doubt, there would be a number of Apple bashers defending Microsoft. They claim that Apple tax Mac users US$129 every year, which was clearly untrue, and the latest Mac OS X Snow Leopard was only $29 (USD). Some of them also argue that new version of Mac OS X Snow Leopard should only be released as Service Pack, however they praise Microsoft's every single improvement into Windows. Allow me to give you an example, Paul Thurrott and Leo Laporte praised the use of graphic processor (GPU) on Windows 7, whereas the underneath improvement and increased usage of GPU on Mac OS X Snow Leopard should only be a 'Service Pack'.
Microsoft Australia is also known for over taxing Australians.
