I decided to give Windows 7 a go, and spent all morning making back-ups for important files and preparing mentally to a post-XP life.
It has been done.
I was amazed to discover that Windows 7 is, as it promised, an operating system. Being one, it offers me system to operate my computer with. This is... not that exciting.
So I opened and closed some folders, moved files around, I even changed my background image. Then I sat in front of the screen, realising that Windows 7 offers very little entertainment by itself.
