REDMOND, Washington - Julie Larson-Green hopes you'll like Windows 7. If not, well, now you and a billion other people know whom to blame.

Microsoft Corp. is counting on Larson-Green, its head of "Windows Experience," to deliver an operating system that delights the world's PC users as much as its last effort, Vista, disappointed them.

From what I've seen of the W7 beta's it's going to be a good OS. Just for giggles I installed it on a spare hard drive I had on my HP nc6400 laptop, 1.8Ghz core duo, 1GB RAM, and it was faster than XP.

Looks like some of the newer computers will have touch screens. Sounds like it's suppose to be more intuitive for users, plus there are things you can do with your fingers, you can't do with a mouse. Larson-Green demonstrates.

But have you learned that a RAID is not a substitute for backups?
