The latest version of Microsoft Windows is on store shelves Thursday and it's getting favorable reviews."Windows 7 is probably the best operating system Microsoft has put out since Windows '98. It's fast, it's robust, it gives you all of the newest features, and latest of technology, without having a slow CPU, slow hard drive, slow internet," said Manny Lloyd with Geeks in a Flash.

Computer expert Manny Lloyd said if you're using Windows XP or Vista and you can afford to do so, switch over to Windows 7.

He said windows 7 uses a lot less memory than vista which helps keep your computer from getting bogged down.

Testers who've used the operating system for a year say it's faster, less cluttered and more compatible with hardware and software.

Some applications that were a part of previous versions of Microsoft like Windows Movie Maker, is not included in Windows 7. They will instead be offered as a separate free download, called the "essentials pack".

Windows 7 costs $200 dollars.
