Dell said it worked closely with Microsoft during the development of Windows 7 and both companies are committed to delivering a great customer experience and superior long term value.
'Countless hours of testing and close collaboration with software providers contributed to the outstanding performance, increased productivity and efficiency security and usability of Windows 7,' said a senior official.
