Windows 7, the newest version of Windows, is not an upgrade to Windows Vista but an entirely new operating system. If you use Windows Vista, you should find many similarities with Windows 7 and expect to gain greater functionality in the areas of communication, multimedia, and security, including improved, streamlined User Account Control (UAC) performance with fewer prompts. The interface introduced with Vista, Windows Aero, uses 3D graphics and other high-end visual effects.
