Windows XP vs Windows 7

Windows XP vs Windows 7

Windows 7 is the latest operating system released by Microsoft but still the major market share is ruled by Windows XP. Windows XP which was till yet dominating the Client Operating System Market was given a push back by Microsoft Windows Vista. As Windows Vista was not a major success in the market,that's why Microsoft is bought a new OS Windows 7.

Although their could be thousand of differences between Windows XP and Windows 7. I found some major differences between both the operating system which are listed below.

Differences between Windows XP and Windows 7

1. One of the major difference between both the operating system is User Access Control. Where Windows XP doesn't have any UAC on other side Windows 7 enables the UAC feature which was introduced in Windows Vista.

2. Windows 7 supports DirectX 11 where Windows XP support Directx 9.

3. One major difference is regarding the graphics , where Windows XP lacks them on other hand Windows 7 is known for its visual appearance.

4. Their is a difference in speed of both the operating system where Windows 7 boots quicker than Windows XP

5. Networking features like Direct access and VPN reconnect which were not available in Windows XP but are introduced in Windows 7 also adds a point to this list of differences between Windows XP and Windows 7.

Well both operating systems are great, but I think I prefer windows 7 for the facilities it has compared with XP, it updates faster and makes an own back up image for itself. The problem some useful applications has had some compatibility issues during installation.
