Windows update is far more appropriate[/b]

Well it’s worth to download as an offline update anytime :slight_smile:

already update it yesterday…
My windows update is automatic…

Downloading it now.

lolx…West Malaysia company already use Window 7 two years before its release~ now i use window 7 too~ :smiley:

What’s so funny about that? The companies that used Windows 7 before its official release date are field testing the software before its official release. This is normal, and I even have the Windows 7 Release Candidate disc given by Microsoft Malaysia for us to try out the OS before its official release.

I also used it
it was free…a good OS so I bought it

It’s not easy for business to move on to the latest Operating System every time a new one exists.

Business have to factor in:
-Compatibility with their current softwares
-Usage
-Hardware compatibility
-Operational cost

Factor in people’s atitude towards new OS too. I’ve encountered so many users reluctant to change OS because not getting used to the new interface.

win 7 will improve productivity…100%

Hardware compatibility is not as issue, w7 finds drivers automatically

if you try it you will know

much easier to use than XP, you need to keep up with the times

it is 2011 now

downloaded and installed and updated! woots!

yeahh, there is still customer/users that don’t like Windows 7 and request to downgrade to XP. Not because of software compatibility…but not comfortable with the interface :lol:
