Windows It's October 22 today. A completely random date in the grand scheme of things (we Dutch lost a big naval battle to the Ming dynasty on October 22 1633), but it also happens to be the release date of the newest version of Windows - Windows 7. Since Windows is still the most popular desktop operating system out there, this is pretty big news.

Actually, it's running quite fine on a pair of 3 year old computers in my home, an Athlon 64 300+ (single core) and an Intel Pentium 4HT 3Ghz. Both machines have only 1GB of RAM.

I just installed the 90 day Enterprise version trial on a Pentium IV 2.8Ghz (single core). The startup times, and general performance are on par with XP (no numbers though). It is far, far faster for most tasks than Vista on a 3GB quad-core machine in our office. The action manager is a nice alternative to the notification area. The task bar, low-rent OSX Dock clone will take some getting used to.
