Window(s) on the horizon

Yes, today is October 22nd.
Today, the much awaited version of Microsoft’s popular operating system – Windows 7 – officially launches worldwide. And being the crazy electronics freak that I am, the box is already on my desk.

And here’s what it looks like, straight out of the box (along with my laptop and other stuff):

Yeah I know, I haven’t even opened the box yet [23oct, Edit:] Okay, so I’ve just opened the box this morning and can confirm, yes it comes with both the 32bit and 64bit DVDs which is a good thing because I’m looking forward to “going 64”.
And I really hope its worth the hype because I’ve completely lost hope in Vista (recently my Gtalk, Skype and other VOIP software stopped working all of a sudden).

I can’t wait to install this.

Do write a review of it after you have used it for a while. M too eager to hear about how it is. It looks promising, by the way. I have just downloaded its theme for XP :P

Dhanya said...

I second Darshan! Do write a review next up. Would love to know more...

-=A.R.N.=- said...

@Shimmer
Almost.
That coffee mug was there on the previous pic too :P

@A new beginning
Right now my Arabic is...er..on hold. Still have a long way to do.

@Darshan
Will do.
I'm still trying to work out some minor quirks in.

@Dhanya
You got it...but like I said, I'm gonna have to let this sit for a while so I get a better idea on it.

Do give your review of Windows 7 in a future blog post.

About the icons - I am giggling because I remember how you used to diagonally align your icons on your Windows 98 Pentium ii machine :-D

Jaffer said...

Darn it - I should have read the rest of the comments ! Now I sound like a spammer ! LOL

-=A.R.N.=- said...

@Rayees
I wonder why everyone's loading up Win7 themes for xp :P
Don't think it like this when Vista came out...

@Jaffer
Full review coming right up...I'm just giving this some "settling" time before I jump to conclusions.

Oh and you were right abt the icons...I had them diagonally for a long time before I got rid of them.
And don't worry abt being spammy...we all forget to read comments once in a while
