Windows 7: Done

These are the final days of Windows Vista, if indeed Vista ever had its day to begin with. Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are done. Microsoft has apparently released them to manufacturing.

There's not much more that we can say about Windows 7 that we haven't already said. The bottom line is that it had better be good -- and it does look good. All Windows 7 has to do is save a fairly large portion of Microsoft's financial bacon that has taken a hit thanks to Vista, netbooks and (all together now) the economy.

Many of you have tried and reviewed it, and most of the reviews have been positive. Well, the lights are coming up, the new operating system is backstage, and the curtain is about to open. And not a moment too soon for Microsoft. Our only regret here at RCPU? No more Vista jokes. Alas, they were fun while they lasted.
