22. Window 7 - from experience

For all those out there thinking they should stick with Vista (or XP!) as they do not want to try yet another new operating system in Windows 7, I can tell you that so far the difference I have found are minimal. Clearly there must be new features, but so far I have been able to use all the old functions, and change back to older interfaces where necessary.

How do I know? Because I have just bought a new machine (Sony Vaio 15.5in VGN-NW20SF for the record) with Windows 7 installed. Why? because the old computer decided not to work. Did I loose any data? Everything was backed up only a few days before, and all new documents had been send to colleagues for checking. So (remarkably for me) no data lost!
