Visit to the Windows 7 Demo Lounge – Parts 1, 2, 3 (W/Video)

Posted by at 2:51 am on January 4, 2010

Looking back on 2009 the biggest event was the release of Windows 7.   Microsoft has a winner with this release and it is the OS that anyone with a machine 3 years old or newer should upgrade to.   Windows Vista was a disappointment to many and while SP 1 for Vista took care of most the problems, the damage to Vista’s image in the market place and to consumers was done.   Plus, the netbook phenomena pointed out how large a footprint Vista required, which drove the netbook makers to XP.

Windows 7 has a much smaller footprint, which is why you are seeing   it come pre-installed on netbooks. In short, it is easier to use than Vista or XP and supports many more of the new things we can do with computers today that were not even on the drawing board when XP was designed.

Microsoft has done a great job with ads, even 7 second ones, but as I have heard from many people, many of those ads cover the information a little too fast.   As one person told me, “Ron Popeil will take 15 minutes to just show you the basics of a rotisserie oven before even showing what you can cook with it.   I think Windows deserves the same.”

Well due to the hard work of a couple great PR people, we get to sit down with Brandon LeBlanc and Christopher Flores of Microsoft at the Windows Demo Lounge on Microsoft’s main Redmond campus to get a demo of many of Windows 7’s features.     If you subscribe to the podcast you have seen the highlight video of the visit.     Now we are going to release the in-depth videos.

These videos should be of help to you if you are thinking about going to Windows 7, if your firm is upgrading to Windows 7 or if you were lucky enough this holiday season to have received Windows 7 or a new machine with Windows 7 on it.   Below are the first three parts of the series.
