BBC NEWS | Windows 7: How to upgrade your computer

Microsoft has released its new operating system Windows 7. Here are a few tips on what to look out for should you decide to upgrade your computer, and a consideration of whether it is worth the effort.

For most computer users, upgrading to a new operating system is never routine, regardless of whether it is Microsoft, Apple or Linux.

But installing a new Microsoft operating system might fill you with particular trepidation. Two-and-a-half years ago, I made the experiment of upgrading an old computer from Windows XP to Windows Vista.

The fact that most people still prefer XP says it all. Back then I likened my upgrade experience to

.

So has Microsoft learned anything? To find out, I installed Windows 7 on three computers:

  • a two-year-old computer running Windows Vista
  • a ten-month-old netbook running Windows XP, and
  • a six-and-a-half-year-old computer running Vista (the machine that was the subject of my Vista trap story).

There are two options to put Windows 7 on your PC:

The upgrade, which works on Vista machines only; all your files and applications stay in place and, with a few exceptions (especially anti-virus software), you won't have to reinstall any programs.

The clean install , which wipes parts of your hard disk and forces you to reinstall all your applications, although Microsoft says its "Easy Transfer tool" will help you move across documents and profile settings. It's more laborious than the upgrade and may daunt those who see their PC as a black box - to be used but not tampered with.

For this experiment I decided to upgrade the first machine, and do clean installations on the netbook and the old computer.

Topsy - A search engine powered by tweets

Topsy is a new kind of search engine, with a new way of looking at the Internet. Topsy doesn't think the Internet is a collection of documents. Or even a web of documents. Topsy sees the Internet as a stream of conversations. Topsy treats people differently from the webpages they create and the things they say. And Topsy sees that people in every community are connected in a web of relationships, where each person influences other people to read, talk and think about things.

When you search for something on Topsy, such as "free music", it finds snippets of conversations that match what you're looking for. Topsy results are the things people link to, when they're talking about your search terms. Topsy ranks results based on how well they match your search terms, and the influence of the people talking about them.

Because of how Topsy works, Topsy can do things other search engines don't usually do. Topsy results are fresh, because they're based on what you're talking about right now. Or this week. Or the past month. Topsy has "trackback" pages for everything in its index, showing what everyone is saying about that thing. Conversations are about people, and Topsy has pages for every person it listens to – listing the things you've been talking about.

The Chaos Scenario

Bob Garfield says we are in the midst of a new world order. In his book, The Chaos Scenario, he digs into the digital revolution that he says will devastate mass media, and make you the next mogul.

**

You are here because you understand. The yin and yang of mass media and mass marketing -- so marvelously, mutually sustaining for 400 years -- have decoupled. The digital universe that pried them apart is itself a marvel, shifting power from the few to the many and altering human behavior, not to mention economies, on a grand scale. The question for business – as well as government, religion, science, politics, academia and every other institution hitherto operated from the top down – is what to do now.
Which is precisely what this site is meant to figure out.

Obviously, I'm flogging a book here. I spent more than four years, and explored five continents, seeking the answers. Beginning in a Denmark cow pasture, I roamed from Estonia to Australia, Israel to England, Montenegro to Brazil, California to Conshohocken, Pa. trying to locate the pathways out of chaos. Along the way, I contrived what I call the art and science of Listenomics, a set of principles for taking advantage of the very power shifts that so threaten The Powers That Be. I've even engaged in an epic battle with one of those titanic Powers (and won!)

Vegan Cookies

Kelly Peloza is a consistently motivated eighteen year old recent high school graduate who is always creating something, whether it's drawing a portrait, taking a photograph, or crafting a cookie recipe. She values the aesthetics of the world and the art of baking is no exception. Her impetus to create a cookie book was to show the world that vegan baking, cookies in particular, needn't be inaccessible or an underwhelming experience for the palate. After becoming vegan at age fourteen and becoming interested in baking, she soon formed the opinion that instructing bakers to use "egg replacer" or tofu in a recipe was no way to introduce vegan baking to the general population. Thereafter, she began formulating her own recipes with an emphasis on accessibility and deliciousness. She is author of the cookzine, Vegan Candyland, and runs the Etsy shop, Seitan Beats Your Meat
