In July 2009, Windows 7 was released, bringing with it some new features, but sticking to the aero look of its predecessor, Windows Vista. Windows 7 features several new features, although for the most part it was intended to be a "more focused" version of the Windows operating system. The main goal of the Windows 7 design was to offer compatibility with the multitude of hardware and applications that Vista was already compatible with.
The Windows 7 Operating System (OS) offers multitouch capability, as well as a new taskbar that was a part of the Windows shell, the main graphical interface of the Windows OS. Windows 7 offers a more stable operating system over earlier versions, such as Windows XP and Vista. Before purchasing Windows 7, first learn about the various software editions available and the features offered by the Windows 7 OS.
