I want to buy Windows 7 but as soon as I saw the price I cringed. Anything is better then Windows Vista but I wonder if this is another fuck up from Microsoft. So anyways, I was looking for brief reviews/comments from people who are currently using Windows 7. thanks.
My one computer was taking a shit with XP. Gettin BSOD constant so I said fuck it and got Windows 7, and its been incredibly stable and has been performing awesome. Im with the whole well worth it so far.
no, vista was terrible. It was released prematurely. After a year or so it got better as more updates came out, but when it was first released it was garbage. Windows 7 is what Vista should have been, but the project had already been delayed and they had to release it, they basically ran out of time.
My brother just got a mac for school two days ago and my mom upgraded to windows 7 (it was free), windows 7 is a lot better then vista, but it still isn't OS X. I would rather be using xp than windows 7. It is just a bunch of UI improvments and got rid of the problems with vista. Nothing innovative came out of it

I had the vista beta for months and it was still 10x better than osx. No offense, I just hate using a mac based computer. Windows 7 is not a huge difference to vista, but I do like it. The taskbar is great except when I'm editing. I just use way too many windows for that to be effective. Way better than the osx taskbar though.
what does OS10 have to do with anything? We are talking about windows here... Choosing which platform you use is a personal decision, one isn't necessarily better then the other. Most windows users don't have the option of running OS10. I don't see your point in bringing OS10 up besides trying to create another mac vs pc fanboy circle jerk.
i really have not had any problems or annoyances with vista, never understood all the hate. however, i do alot of high preformance stuff (hd video, 3d animations) so is it just bugs that are fixed or does it have significant preformance improvements
I'd wait a few months after its release to allow time for Microsoft and the other software companies to work out incompatibility issues that always occur with brand new operating systems. I've been running the beta on a few machines at work and it's a pretty solid OS though.
torrent it. i have windows 7 ultimate right now, its genuine too. this windows is seriously amazing. no problems with drivers, only one, but i manually fixed it.
ill admit its pretty similar to vista in the sense that windows explorer is almost identical, but the search feature is faster and smoother. the networking is also a lot easier. the shake and drag to the side features are extremely handy in my case as well.
i would say buy it if you have the money, if not, just download a torrent, and use 7loader, it will do everything, you just sit back and relax, and watch your vista turn into 7 in under 30 minutes.
