I don’t see why anyone would like Vista better.  Windows 7 is everything Vista is but made to work better, faster, and given more functionality.  Anything you don’t like can be turned off to make it like Vista.

 

So seriously.  Why would anyone prefer the resource hog over the new and better version; it’s lighter, faster, and does more stuff.

I used to be a huge fan of mac, but that changed as soon as Win7 came out.

 

Can’t wait for my new machine!


 

Neat thought! Well put. Smile You can use Win7 as Win7 or you can use Win7 as Vista. Wow! Smart work.

It would have been nice if they provided “optional backward integration” in hardware too & not just software. Else, one weird thing which could happen is:-

  1. The rich would have Win7
  2. The middle income group would have Vista
  3. The poor would have Xp

A Queen of France was known to have said “If you don’t like bread eat cakes”. We all know what happened to her. Don’t we? Surely Microsoft can learn some lessons………………..just so over the years it doesn’t metamorphose into a shrunken company catering only to the elite………………….with an elitist productSurprised

I love win 7 on my laptop… this gaming rig is still XP. That will change but not until the fall when i up-grade this rig. i do that every three years.

In the end everything will be OK. If it's not OK then it's not the end.

ok Jabtano, got it! It’s not because XP handles gaming better than Win7. It’s because the gaming rig (which runs on Xp) has not completed 3 yrs. Once that happens you’ll upgrade its OS to Win7. got it

I’ve used all the windows flavors since Windows 3.0 except I kinda skipped Windows ME.  I definitely like Win7 the best.  It seems the fastest and most stable. 

Of course, hardware has gotten faster all along, so it is entirely possible that WinXP would be really, really fast on my laptop (about 1 year old, came with Vista, upgraded to Win7 Pro).

But I usually have a mixture of OS’s around. Right now I have the Win7 laptop, my husband’s Vista machine, 2 old Win2000 desktops (mainly just used for kid’s games so I don’t feel like upgrading them), and I usd WinXP at work.  In general, they are all pretty stable for the use they get.  I also have 32 processor, 64gb memory unix servers at work to play around with (but command line only no nice UI).

@Karen

 

Good choice for skipping windows ME.  That was a bigger failure than Vista! Surprised

 

Also what can you do to use that much server power with a command line interface?

Any comments? Questions? Outbursts?

Those servers run the intranet for the US Army.  So they run webservers, appservers, databases, etc.  For the most part, they maintain themselves which is good.  But we do have to get on the servers to put new code in place, upgrades, etc.

Hi Karen!Smile

Ami an accountant from South Africa was very happy with Vista since it ran heavy apps – sap, baana, many other accountancy apps too. It did look for a moment that this was one strong area for vista. Does Win7 compare poorly on this aspect?

@Ramesh Kumar

No sir, I’ll not be up-grading the OS rather the rig it’s self. inwich i’ll have win7 64. currently i could not run 64 on this rig. and that is the way i want to go when i upgrade. so i can not see doing the OS untill then.

In the end everything will be OK. If it's not OK then it's not the end.

This maybe off topic but I prefer Windows Server 2008 more than Vista or Windows 7 as I beta tested all of these.

I’ve never had a reason to run erp programs, so I’m sorry that I can’t help you there.

But I tend to keep lots of programs up and running at the same time, and I’ve never had any stability problems.

I would guess that Win7 would run the programs slightly better than Vista (on the same hardware) since in general it is a little lighter on resources than Vista.  But it was built based on Vista, so I don’t think you would have any issues.
