Yes, it’s true. I have been selected to host an official Windows 7 Launch Party. The event takes place on Friday, October 23. I’ll be giving away some door prizes (including a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium) and the party is more of a happy hour with some Windows swag and chances to play with the new operating system thrown in.
I have to admit that I am very impressed with the latest version of Windows. It surprisingly runs better than Leopard on my MacBook Pro (the jury is still out on my comparison to Snow Leopard) and looks and feels gorgeous. I have been using a 90 day copy of the RTM (release to manufacturing) version on my PC and I have been quite pleased.
I could get into lots of details of the changes and such, but I found a very thorough review of Windows 7 on ActiveWin. Follow this link to read (or skim) the 70 page review if you’re so inclined.
