I purchased a new computer last week and it came with Windows 7 Home Premium. I have been concerned for some time as to how I would ever get all of my data transferred to a new computer. You always miss something. It has always been near impossible for an average user to get their mail accounts with all messages and attachments transferred. Well not any more.
Transferring all of your email and data is a snap. It comes with a program that allows you a variety of ways to accomplish it, asks you a few simple questions, gives you the tool needed to be installed on your old computer and Bingo. Sit back and watch everything transfer. It leaves your old computer in tact so you can go back and use your info on it as well, but all of your data is transferred.
Once your data is transferred Windows 7 provides you with a full report on exactly what has been transferred. It also provides you with a list of programs you will have to re-install on your new computer to be able to access the data. (You should have the install disks that came with the software). Once they are installed you are back in action.
I’m not saying that making the move is painless, but Windows 7 sure goes out of it’s way to make it as painless as possible.
Windows 7 has the stability we all need as well as compatibility with peripherals and software. Something that was sadly lacking in Windows Vista.
Anyway, this is not a commercial for Microsoft, just “My Two Cents” on the subject. I am very impressed and got a smoking deal on the laptop to boot.
If you are considering purchasing a new computer/laptop and are concerned about the new operating system, put your concerns to bed and enjoy!
