Should you switch to Windows® 7?

According to the most recent REALTOR®.org Technology Report1, 63% of real estate professionals surveyed are still using Windows® XP and 31% are using Vista. That translates into a large number of potential users who are faced with the question, should I switch over to Windows® 7? We'll give you the facts and let you decide.

What the reviewers are saying

It's often what the technology critics say that give us the insights to make our buying decisions. If you're considering making the switch, many of the reviewers are certainly in favour of persuading you to do just that. Read their comments:

1. "After using pre-release versions of Windows® 7 for nine months, and intensively testing the final version for the past month on many different machines, I believe it is the best version of Windows Microsoft (MSFT) has produced. It's a boost to productivity and a pleasure to use." —Walt Mossberg, Wall Street Journal (10/7/09)

2. "…Windows® 7 is more than just spin. It's stable, smooth, and highly polished, introducing new graphical features, a new taskbar that can compete handily with the Mac OS X dock, and device management and security enhancements that make it both easier to use and safer." —Seth Rosenblatt, CNET editor's review (7/31/09)

3. "Windows® 7 is… —a solid OS with plenty of modern eye candy that mostly succeeds in taking Windows usability into the 21st century….Upgrade without trepidation, people. With excitement, even." —Matt Buchanan, Gizmodo (8/5/09)
