So Windows 7 is on the cusp of being released. “You know, right now there are actually 2.5 million users around the world who are using the beta and are synchronizing with Windows Update. It's a phenomenal operating system. I've been using Windows 7 on both my desktop and my laptop now for well more than six months. I can tell you from my own personal experience, every one of my applications has just worked. The performance, when I open up my laptop, I'm working in just a matter of seconds. And I've got to tell you, I love what we've done with Windows 7,” said Brad Anderson at Microsoft Management Summit in Las Vegas, Nev on April 29, 2009 prior to Windows 7 RC release.
