Windows 7

Okk.


This was a hype from the begining. But today I tried my hands on my MSDN version of the windows 7.


And surprisingly,its quite pleasant ;)


I'm not running it on a super hi-fi computer,but on a decent laptop.And its running quite fine.


Here is a snapshot of the specs I'm using on this test Rig






And among the other things I find a loadful of useful things till now I've been using in windows XP as either add-on or third party tools.

The place where I snapped this pic is called Sidhheswari Mandir. Near the Assam University. There aren't many places to visit nearby, so masu and jethu told we should visit this as it has a very nice surroundings. Mom and masu went in the Allto and me,dad and jethu went into the Indigo. Well quite a luxury car that was.
After we reached there was nothing to see, except this...Well the surroundings were really nice. But it was almost dawn so none of my pics came quite to my liking except this one.

If only this place had a little rain and been a little cooler...
