Well Guys, it is almost here!  Windows 7 (Microsoft’s Windows Vista Clean up upgrade) will be unveiled pretty soon!  From what the guys at Microsoft say, Windows 7 is the

easiest, fastest, and most engaging version of Windows yet. Better ways to find and manage files, like Jump Lists and improved taskbarpreviews, help you speed through everyday tasks. Faster and more reliable performance means your PC just works the way you want it to. And great features like Windows Media Center and Windows Touch make new things possible. Get to know Windows 7, and see how it can simplify just about everything you do with your PC. [Windows 7]

According to the guys at Gizmodo, Apple’s Snow Leopard upgrade might be much better than Microsoft’s Windows upgrade. In short here is what they had to say:

  • Apple’s Snow Leopard will be out in September for $29 unless you bought your Mac on or after June 8, 2009, in which case you can upgrade for about $9.95 [Read More].  Windows 7 comes out around October 22nd for about $50 for Home Premium or $100 for Professional [Read More]
  • Snow Leopard requires a minimum of about 5GB of your disk space while Windows 7 requires a minimum of about 16GB for the 32-bit and 20GB for the 64-bit version (in actuality, they say Windows 7 should use about 6-8GB).
  • Windows 7 will be in either 64-Bit version or 32-Bit version (the latter will only recognize 4GB of RAM).  Snow Leopard will come in 64-bit version only.
  • Windows 7 will feature the much anticipated Direct X 11 while Snow Leopard will come with Open CL that will enable programmers to tap into the different cores inside your graphics card for applications that do other things besides graphics (whether it be using your graphics for H.264 video accelleration (enables smoother video playback and eases the load of work on your CPU) for newer Nvidia GeForce 9 Series Macs.
