Hello, everybody. And welcome to this lecture and this lecture. We're gonna be talking about Microsoft Windows seven when the seven is an operating system and we just covered operating system. So have you been following along? Please join me. If not, please review the previous lecture.
So Windows seven it was released in October 20 seconds of the year 2009. So about 10 years now,
10 years ago or so. Ah, it's preferred by many users, including myself, out of all the Windows operating systems out there because it reflects the classic windows. So if you've been using Windows you started out on Windows. It does look a lot like it, and it comes with a lot of cooler features. Security features things like that.
And it does run a lot of your favorite programs, including games,
which is what I have been using it for so before. When the seven we had Windows Vista and that was a disaster. Sorry, I don't know anybody who likes Windows Vista. Um, and it was really designed to help fix the issues and complaints that people brought to Microsoft
when they all used Windows Vista. So
when the seven does run off the same hardware does use a lot of the same software that is used by Windows Vista, but it is. It was made more efficient and just better overall. So increased performance dramatically on my experience. Ice to support both operating systems a lot. It's dust, top administrator and, uh, yeah,
everyone loved when the seven
eso this operative system will continue to be supported until January 14th 2020. So we don't have that much longer. Unfortunately, we are. A lot of people are using when there's 10 but a couple of the new features that were included in this OS opposed to when there's Vista,
where libraries, home groups and a pens taskbar.
So they were, ah, couple different editions of Windows seven when this operating system was released. When the seven starter came out, there was home basic Home premium, ultimate professional and enterprise. Um, we're gonna talk about that in a second here. Let's start off with Windows seven starter.
So if you remember a couple years ago, maybe a decade ago or so,
we had a device called a netbook, which is basically a miniature laptop, usually about one gig of Ram small, small processor. It was very compact and it was used for the those business professionals who need to travel all the time. Did a lot of work processing things like that. There's the perfect operating system for you, too.
Get on the go it It did not include things like when this media player
or a media center
it did not include things like when those media center when those arrow
ah, Internet Connection Sharing II s Web server and didn't include any enterprise features like domain joining Orbit Locker or E. F. S or anything like that. Ah, and it was only available in 32 bit version S O max out a two gigs of RAM
that you were allowed to add and the processor like I said before,
quite small. So
it was great for what we needed. A four. But that's time. Times have changed since then.
Windows seven Home Premium was the next level up from the window seven Starter, and it was the most popular consumer edition and included a DVD playback have Windows air. It had Internet connection sharing and zit had the IIS Web server.
It excluded the enterprise technology because there wasn't really intended for that user base. It was really meant for
the home users. So it came baked into a lot of your laptops that you'd pick up at any store you were going to pick up. Ah, home laptop at eso was not meant for business he use, um so you didn't know you did not get domain joining Orbit locker or E F. S.
And ah, this operating system was 64 bit based, and this supported up to 16 gigs of RAM and two
Next up on the tier was Windows seven Ultimate. This was a completely functional operating system that had everything you needed. It included enterprise technology like domains, the board and remote that stop things like that. It was 64 bit version
and supported 292. Gigs of Ram
has all the features of Windows seven Enterprise, but it's for home users.
When the seven professional was the one that I used all the time, it had everything in Windows Home Premium. Plus it could connect to the enterprise. Domain is supported, were remote desktop and yes, it did not include that locker. But ah, it did have everything else that we need it. So
if you did need bit locker, which we'll talk about that in a little bit,
then you would want to use some of the others like Enterprise. It was 64 bit, and it's supported 192 gigs of RAM.
And then he had Windows Enterprise, which was sold on Lee at an enterprise volume licensing model. So you had to get, uh, you know, had to have some kind of agreement with Microsoft, and you put you got all your licenses at a discount. But really, it was for those large corporations that had a lot of users using Windows.
Um, so yeah, you did probably see that your job. It did have multi lingual supports. See, you could change the languages, and it did have bit locker encryption,
and these were the requirements for Windows seven. So you had to have ah CPU with only one gigahertz, that the minimum for the 32 hover over here for the 32 bits operating system, which is the X 86.
And if you were going Thio, get a win. The 7 64 bit operating system you need to have one gigahertz as well.
For RAM. For the 32 bit, you needed only one gig, but for 64 bit, you didn't need 32 gigs
for the hard drive you needed at least a minimum of 16 Jakes. But for a 64 bit, you need at least 20 gigs. And for video, basically a direct X nine graphics device of some sort.
Um, so, yeah, not too tasking. That about wraps up this lecture on Windows seven. I will see you guys in the next one.
