Get Windows 7 and Office 2010, you will love your PC again

Michael Dell, CEO Dell Computers

Story from ComputerWorld

I think netbooks with their tiny 8″ to 10″ screens and slow processors are dumb. But when Michael Dell, CEO of Dell Computers and the man who sells them says they are dumb, you can believe it.

“Take a user who’s used to a 15-inch notebook and then give him a 10-inch netbook. He’ll say ‘Oh, this is so cool, it’s so lightweight.’ Then 36 hours later he’ll say the screen’s not big enough, give me my 15-inch back.”

“A fair amount of customers” have been unsatisfied with the smaller screens and lower-performance parts, he said later. “For a replacement machine or for a high-end machine, it’s not what we’d recommend.” Dell speaking at Silicon Valley dinner

He went on to praise Windows 7 as the best thing since sliced bread when combined with pb&j otherwise known as the soon-to-be-released Office 2010. All they woul have to do is fix the issues with Office 2007 to make me and plenty other people happy.

“If you get the latest processor technology and you get Windows 7 and Office 2010, you will love your PC again,” Dell said. “And we actually have not been able to say that for a long time. It’s a dramatic improvement.”

Windows 7 seems to make life a little faster. I have the final version working for 3 days now and it is faster with a few glitches. Every piece of software I’ve tried has worked without a hitch. Call me converted.
