Windows 7 weekend

We spent last weekend upgrading my laptop from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Honestly, I don't see what the fuss is all about. I have yet to encounter an earth-shattering and life-changing impact from this latest Windows.

I admit, Windows 3.1 to Windows 95 was a "wow!" moment. But with the succeeding versions of Windows, perhaps the magic of the changes are not for an ordinary folk like me to notice. Sure, Windows 7 looks prettier. My husband is very much entertained by the Snap, Shake and Peek features. But still, they keep coming up with these things just to get our money, of course. Does that still surprise anyone? I think not.
