Windows 7 has many more features than XP or Vista, and most
of the features that exist in all versions of Windows have been improved for
Windows 7. This change is for the betterment of the students as well as the
faculty and staff of Missouri S&T.

    TWIMC –
    My (current) main concern with Win 7, is that under accessories there is no WordPad, only TextPad. TextPad offers only one font (Pica) and only one size (12 pt) πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™ And I have difficulty reading any font under 14 pt.
