Seems businesses have the same idea I have, wait for the idiots to debug Windows 7 for MS then upgrade maybe later on. There is no reason really to change an OS if your current OS is still supported and works pretty much rock solid. And are the features really worth plopping down 100’s of dollars?
- Make the things you do every day easier with improved desktop navigation.
Ok, so whoopteedo.
- Start programs faster and more easily, and quickly find the documents you use most often.
My programs start fast already on XP Pro. And if you can’t find your documents quickly, that you use most often, then you should really get some help, mentally.
- Make your web experience faster, easier and safer than ever with Internet Explorer 8
No thanks, I will stick with Firefox.
- Watch, pause, rewind, and record TV on your PC.
I can do this already on XP Pro with freeware.
- Easily create a home network and connect your PCs to a printer with HomeGroup
I can do this on XP Pro already.
- Connect to company networks easily and more securely with Domain Join
Can’t you do this in XP Pro?
7. Recover your data easily with [automatic backup](http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/backup-and-restore) to your home and business network.
Can do this on XP Pro.
- Help protect data on your PC and portable storage devices against loss or theft with BitLocker.
I can do this on XP Pro with the aid of a program. I bought a USB drive that came with a free file encryption program and you need Windows Ultimate 7 for this?
9 .Work in the language of your choice and switch between any of 35 languages.
Do I need this? Really?
My thoughts on the features listed on MS’s website, for a new OS, it doesn’t really look like they made a good case for upgrading. To me, it looks like they have changed part of the GUI, which they always do anyways to give it a “new” look when in fact it isn’t new really underneath. Making graphical changes to the GUI isn’t worth a couple of hundred dollars or more even with the features mentioned on their website. Sorry, I can see why businesses would want to pass.
