SAN FRANCISCO, May 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Microsoft's upcoming Windows 7 operating system will be an impressive performer, according to the InformationWeek.com story, Wolfe's Den: Mixed Review For Windows 7 Release Candidate.

The review, written by InformationWeek.com editor-in-chief and Wolfe's Den blogger Alexander Wolfe, also notes that Microsoft has put together an impressive suite of tools and features to help enterprises deploy Windows 7. The operating system, which is the successor to Windows Vista, is expected to be officially released by Microsoft within the next few months.

On the down side, Wolfe wonders whether Microsoft hasn't missed a chance to offer more help to average consumers using their PCs at home. "Windows 7 runs great and looks good," he writes in the review. "However, you still need a computer science degree to diagnose serious problems you run into."
