Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Touring Windows 7: Part 1, part of CompTIA A+ (220-902) Cert Prep: 1 Introduction to Computers.
- Windows Vista didn’t last very long and was pretty…quickly replaced in 2009 with Windows 7.…Windows 7 is one of my fave operating systems.…It basically took all the good parts of Vista,…fixed them, and added a few extra new sprinkly things…which we're gonna cover here in this tour of Windows 7…and brought out an operating system that…pretty much everybody loved.…Now Windows 7 in my opinion was almost more like…Vista 2.0 but the important thing to understand here…is that Vista was in and of itself its own operating system…and of all the old versions of Windows I'm willing to bet…that Windows 7 is probably the one that's still is…around the most in this much more modern Windows age.…
There is a lot of cool features that I wanna hit…on all these, but the first thing I wanna touch on is the…interface itself in particular the Aero Desktop.…I've got my Windows 7 system here.…Now the Aero Desktop added a lot of cool 3D and transparency…functions, so it just made a prettier experience.…You can see I've got two Windows right here right now.…
