Windows 7 Rolls Out All Over The World!!

Windows 7Hello everyone,

Today I’m giving you an article by Woody Leonhard because he says it with great experience. I have been going to Woody’s site ( and reading his “Dummies” books for years and he really knows his stuff. I would put him right up there with Microsoft gurus Ed Bott, Paul Thurrott, and Mary-Jo Foley. His writings are entertaining and very easy to understand/digest.

Woody writes:

As I write this it’s 7:00 in the morning, October 22. Phuket’s a little bit ahead of most of you.

Windows 7 is officially out, and I for one am thrilled. Not because of the marketing hype. But because the general public now has access to this piece of software I’ve been writing about – and marveling over – since early this year.

Windows 7 is phenomenal. I’ll go into much more detail in my Windows Secrets Newsletter articles, but the bottom line couldn’t be more clear. Unless you’re running a laptop that’s more than three or four years old, or a desktop that’s more than five or six years old, or you’re stuck with an older piece of hardware or software that won’t work with Vista or Win7, you owe it to yourself to check out Windows 7.

UPDATE: TechRadar quotes the Amazon UK Managing Director as saying, “The launch of Windows 7 has superseded everyone’s expectations, storming ahead of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as the biggest grossing pre-order product of all-time at, and demand is still going strong”.

Professor Randy says: Get Windows 7 and get to know Woody Leonhard and his tech writings.
