Windows7: Three Times Longer Than Its Name to Install

With Windows7 expecting to be released in just over a month, many are looking forward to the upgrade with all new features, like a new taskbar, new netbook edition, and speeds faster than Vista. But there may be a downside to this program which originally appeared to have no flaws.

The creators of Windows7 set out to make the operating system download 5 percent faster than Windows Vista, and in some cases this is true. That is, if you have optimal conditions (1-2 programs and an amazingly fast computer.) So, best case scenario, you may download this upgrade 5 percent faster. But the shocking news? In some instances it took up to 1,220 minutes to download, that's just under 21 hours!

Even if you have a great computer, with mid range hardware (AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+ 2.60 Ghz, 1TB HDDD SATA), you may be out of luck. Anyone who actually uses their computer, for more than just Solitaire, will have to wait long hours just to upgrade their system.

So, as long as you don't mind waiting around all day for something that should take about a half hour, Windows7 is the perfect operating system.
