Thanks so much to those who took the time to leave a comment on our Windows 7 is Here post. We have our lucky winners, listed at the bottom of this post.
We asked you for your top reason for upgrading to Windows 7. There was a common thread throughout most of the comments: you believe, either from reading reviews or running the beta, that Windows 7 is a safe, fast, secure and stable OS, and that it presents definite improvement in Microsoft's OS evolution.
John Lee noted, "The features I've been looking at seem to really take into account the needs of most PC users." And Jonathan Hume affirmed this, adding, "For me it is going to be all about the three 'S' reasons. Speed, Stability and Security."
We'll be interested to hear more as you all get deeper into using it. In the meantime, we hope that our books Windows 7: Up and Running, Windows 7: The Definitive Guide and Windows 7: The Missing Manual help you get up to speed quickly and effectively.
As promised, 7 randomly chosen commenters each wiil receive a free Windows 7 O'Reilly Ebook of their choice, and one grand prize winner was chosen to receive a bundle of all 3 Ebooks. As usual, I used random.org to generate 8 random numbers between 1-57 (including Facebook and Twitter comments); the grand prize winner is post 39; the 7 additional winners are posts 1, 16, 30, 14, 44, 56, and 15 in the order they were drawn. Congratulations to these winners; I've contacted them directly about receiving their Ebooks.
