Directions on Windows 7
Directions on Microsoft is one of my favorite research firms. In fact, I don't trust many firms or analysts, but Directions on Microsoft I do trust. Nearly all (or maybe all) of its analysts are ex-Microsoft executives.
Analyst Michael Cherry is particularly smart and particularly opinionated. So when Mr. Cherry argues that Windows 7 is a great fit for businesses, I believe him. Cherry's main point is that Windows 7 is a huge improvement over XP and solves the most glaring Vista problems.
I like the Windows 7 release candidate, but have to say that it hangs far more than it should. When my laptop lays itself down to sleep, it often dies before it wakes. That's not good for a human or computer!
