Avatar Windows 7 Theme1 100x94 Jpg To celebrate the launch of Windows 7, Microsoft added a bunch of new cool themes. You will find plenty of themes on our site, but after downloading all of them you might want more. If you are looking for a pretty stylish “Gears of War” or “Ducati” Theme, then you shouldn’t miss those themes. Hopefully, Microsoft will continue to work on this part of Windows 7 and Windows 8 and amaze the large community of theme-makers and lovers with some cool new features.

11070 Image 100x100 Jpg Apparently, Microsoft launched their own store and is already selling all of their products online. They also intend to sell Windows 7 online and it seems that they even featured it on their shop for a short time, but then removed it (maybe due to a contract with BestBuy?). Anyway, should you want to visit the Microsoft store yourself, here we go: Microsoft store Currently, they sell the Microsoft Zune, Halo 3, Gears of War and all of their other products. The software boxes, we featured a while ago were real: I’ve setup a site fully dedicated to buying Windows 7, I’ll post any links where you can preorder and buy Windows 7 there. Good news for everyone who is on a tight budget: Due to a recession and the highly competitive MAC OS X, Microsoft might decide to sell Windows 7 for 10-20% less. Apple is releasing a new version of MAC OS X “Snow Leopard” shortly before Windows 7 comes out, which means Microsoft might have to face a great loss of market share despite the fact that they made the best Windows ever.

Windows7 100x100 Jpg Well after struggling finding a name for the vista successor Microsoft decided to simply call it “Windows 7″. The codename becomes the actual name. After all it’s a pretty reasonable choice, because for the enduser it is way easier to distinguish between the different Windows versions if the name is a plain number. Will Windows 7.0 be better than Windows 6.0 also knows as Vista ? 7 is a magical number, but actually it’s Windows 6.1 since Windows 7 will be more like Vista SE. Windows 7 will be completely backwards-compatible to Vista, there aren’t enough significant changes to justify a new kernel version 7.0.
