Remember this is MS. Maybe you should have asked for the Shipped Numbers, I bet you'll get an answer ASAP.
Ordering my copy today, I qualify for the student discount! :) What version are people using, I'm mixed between Home Premium and Professional. Microsoft makes some really nice OS's, I just hate their different SKU's!
I love it...i am impressed .
From what I have used, 7 seems solid. I don't know, but the OS has a Mac kind robust feel and it doesn't hog resources like Vista. The only problem as mentioned are the different SKUs and that is the thing I love in Macs One SKU only, be it a business man wanting the best softwares or a student looking for basic needs, everyone should be on par IMO. Anyways, it's better than Vista which is all I care.
hellz yeah me too, and only $30
Got the professional version for $100, did a fresh install in 30 min, working without any problems since 10/23. So far I am really happy with it. Intel Q6700 4GB of Ram Nvidia 8800GT 512MB
I'm on my old XP Computer. Getting a Laptop in a month or two what are the benefits of Windows 7 what version should I be looking at.
How much for the student discount? I wonder if my campus has them...
Go for Professional, there's no reason not to get a more complete version of the OS for the same price as Home Premium.
I ordered the professional edition along with a backup copy for any extra $13.99 or so, almost done downloading so I should have my copy installed before tonight. The only problem I'm having is transferring all my save files! :p ThanatosDMC: I got mine for $39.99 CDN, I don't think their's a catch other than being a student. http://www.win741.com/ if you scroll down to the bottom you can find links for your country's offers.
Never go cheap with Windows OS.
lol. The title makes it sound like microsoft is a god or something
Just finished installing Windows 7 Profession, 1 word: AMAZING!
lol, it's funny seeing people waiting for a working OS :P
Mac users have been using their flawless OS for a while now.
"Mac users have been using their flawless OS for a while now that only plays World of Warcraft." -Fixed.
That is funny, both XP and Vista has been working for me all these years. Must be user error!
Every minute I'd get a Security prompt, asking me if i'd like to open or download something that I physically clicked. It still let tons of spyware in, which Malwarebytes had to clean up. And a lot of hardware that worked on XP, such as my scanner, printer, and webcam, weren't compatible. Even the Vista driver for my scanner didn't work right. Oh, and the worst part about Vista. It deleted random files from time to time. Yes, important files. I noticed when iTunes couldn't find random songs on my hard drive. They simply didn't exist anymore. I lost other files too, including some high end CG files and Reason 3.0 song files. Not only was Vista poorly designed and a resource hog, it was deleting my work. I'm back on XP-64, and haven't run into one of those issues yet. I could try Windows 7, but this works just fine. In other news, it's funny when people try to talk smack about Mac OS. It's the best OS out there, and pretty much the only one that's literally energy efficient. I'm buying a Macbook Pro in a month, and can't wait to put it to good use.
Macs are just dumbed down PCs they don't have any problems cuz they can't do anything that a PC can
"Windows users have been waiting for their flawed OS for a while now that only plays World of Warcraft for 5 minutes before crashing." -Double-Fixed. @Gago "they don't have any problems cuz they can't do anything that a PC can" Unfortunately, with Windows, a PC can't even do anything it's suppose to be able to do without crashing. @IdleLeeSiuLung "That is funny, both XP and Vista has been working for me all these years. Must be user error!" I thought it was just me too. Then I switch to Mac, and turns out it was just Windows' fault.
I would take your bubbles but your In the open zone so I shall spare you. Ah ah ah
No, Microsoft and Sony are only competing on the console front, everywhere else they're pals, shocker!
@Elven Yeah but most fantards forget that.
windows 7 is much better then mac new os thats for sure. Not that W7 is perfect but niether is the mac os
It's a working version of Vista, which means stability and increased user-friendliness. But Mac OS is still top dog.
I'm glad that Microsoft is finally working hard to make a good OS. The one after Windows 7 should really start to impress people.
Nice back handed compliment jackass. Damn you NEVER give up do you?
i really dont know who to trust now. im stuck on buggy XP. im not convinced of window 7. Im going to wait 6 months before i decide. im more interested in iMac.
Um buggy XP? huh? XP is stable as hell, it's only what 8 years old now? Windows 7 is awesome, not convinced? Wtf would convince you? Since apparently every review saying "it's awesome" is not enough. I'm curious? Or did you just say all that so you could throw in "I'm more interested in imac" CoOoOoOol good for you
Buggy XP... Windows XP and Windows 2000 are the most stable Microsoft OS around. In fact, in 2000, you had to actually TRY and crash it, to crash it. XP crashes on your own doing. Buggy probably refers to your ignorance towards computers, and thus showing that you've probably never defragmented, cleaned or checked for any drive errors.
Why spend a single dime if there is a true open source os, check it out go here a dual boot you will be suprised. Like firefox free and is capable to run games too but we need more people to free their minds!(Matrix) Is like having a car and lets say the manufacturer does not let You look onther the hood! what will you do? get the newst version because the dont let you repair it, that is what closed propietary companies are doing, they control you! With open source you know what is inside. So every couple of years they again take your hard erned money with the promise they fixed it. I have taken the red pill! what are you gona do? more info visit www.linux.com ans www.ubuntu.com
tell me, how many games does ubuntu support?, what?, no pc games except old opengl only games?, are you telling my that if i was to but a game, that it wouldn't work on ubuntu?, that's just crazy, tell me why would i use it then?
i'll sleep better knowing that microsoft stockholders are happy, in the end isn't that what it's all about?
Got Windows 7 Home Premium sitting on my desk, just waiting for this external hard drive to come so I can finally back up my files and then do a clean install. As for using XP 64 bit, are you insane lol. XP 64 is horrible, even Vista 64bit which I'm using atm is better. Also saving up for a Macbook Pro 15" so I can use Logic Studio 9, Ableton Live 8 and Traktor DJ Pro.
I disagree with you because i work as a tech support for pcs and today I start to get calls about the POS of windows 7 and how it doesnt work at all.
lol... you can at least try harder.
You got to be kidding me .
I L-O-V-E Win 7! Pre-ordered mine in july been running since the 22nd, awesome OS!
win 7 64 ultimate and vista 64 ultimate here !!! Both works excellent. No significant difference on gaming.
