Tech tastemakers Pogue and Mossberg give Windows 7 thumbs up

On a day that started out with bad news from Microsoft, two of the world’s most influential technology reviewers, David Pogue of The New York Times and Walt Mossberg of The Wall Street Journal, are out with positive early reviews of Windows 7. Coincidence?

Pogue focuses his review on the ways Windows 7 addresses peoples’ biggest complaints about Windows 7. “It looks and works a lot like Vista. In fact, what Microsoft seems to be going for in Windows 7 is ‘Vista, fixed.'”

Mossberg gushes a bit more.

“In general, I have found Windows 7 a pleasure to use. There are a few drawbacks, but my preliminary verdict on Windows 7 is positive.

“Even in beta form, with some features incomplete or imperfect, Windows 7 is, in my view, much better than Vista, whose sluggishness, annoying nag screens, and incompatibilities have caused many users to shun it. It’s also a serious competitor, in features and ease of use, for Apple’s current Leopard operating system.”
