Windows 7 Shazam!

“Wow” doesn’t cut it for me. “Wow” is what I say if a lady yells at her kids in public. Or if I see one more person wear brown Uggs with black leggings (so many kinds of wrong). Or 10% off of whatever. Yeah, wow. So when it comes to the Windows 7 awesomeness, I like “Shazam!” better.

So first of all, this is to all you folks that want to know about the specific awesomeness of Windows 7, especially any that are currently lobbying me to get them a copy. Have you no shame, people? Because you don’t get it for free. You have to pay me in shame. Get crackin’.

Anyway, I installed Win 7 a couple weeks ago and in my normal fashion (wait, that comes with instructions? who reads instructions?), I went on my merry way. Totally merry. And I didn’t do any “getting started with…” shizz. I’m a busy lady. Ya hear? So aside from the shiny awesomeness I can see and feel, I know that there’s more there. So it would be totally helpful if there was a chairman of awesomeness that could break it down for me, like Hammer style. So it can get awesomer and awesomer.

This shows up in Fast Company (big ups for the much improved content, my FC friends). Some of this I knew about and some I didn’t. I mean, come on, Aero Shake? Who doesn’t want to shake their open application windows closed? I always tend to like the hidden features where you think “how the heck would I have known about that?” And also, who doesn’t love shaking?

I’ll keep digging in and finding more cool stuff in here to share with you guys as the digital trip progresses (seriously, wait til you see the desktop art and then tell me you don’t understand why we don’t drug test…oops, maybe I shouldn’t have said that).

    Yo MS lady!


    I’ll be hosting one of the Windows 7 parties and received my copy of party materials from MS; including the Windows 7 "Steve Ballmer" Signature edition.


    Have a rockin’ weekend!

    P.S.  Hmmmm….I want to go see "Paranormal Activity"!  Sounds cool!

    P.S.S.  Forget getting me a free copy of Windows 7 (besides MS ALREADY sent me one)… about a frickin job!  😉  LOL.

    Aside from the stability (I’ve been running it at home since this summer without any problems) the wallpaper is my favorite.  It was my first hint at this is a totally new deal.

    BTW, I installed a pre-release version on my daughter’s PC which is several years old and has 2 gig of ram. Win 7 ran amazingly well, we were both very pleased (but she still wants a new PC).

    Todd- Can you believe that I am not hosting a Windows 7 party? I have freieds hosting one and may assist with some color commentary for comedic effect.

    Steve – Glad you like it. I’m using the Mt. Fuji wallpaper right now (one of the downloads). It’s super-girly, so I don’t know if it’s for you, but maybe your daughter will like it. As for the new PC, they are pretty cheap these days. But glad Win 7 is running well on the old one. Mayber you can donate the old one for a tax deduction.  From what I have read the "footprint" of Win 7 is relatively small (do I get some geek cred for saying that?).

    This is good to hear. Maybe I’ll be out of Vista hell soon.
