XP was great but ill take 7 over it any day.

Any links for vista vs windows 7 comparison?

a_squirrel3727d ago

don't even bother with getting vista if 7 is out.

I have 7, and it's the 'What vista should have been'

Somebody has a broken sarcasm detector. His comment was most assuredly sarcastic. If not, then well... I dunno.

I dual boot currently and there's a huge difference between the two in terms of UI, speed, smoothness of transitions, and Windows 7 is just sexy :D

crazy250003727d ago

But I guarantee you that if you actually use both OS's, you will notice that Windows 7 is unmatched.

the love Windows 7 is getting =) not saying i dont like it but normally these articles are filled with biased comments.

on topic:
i agree windows 7 is really nice, also currently using Vista on my laptop which i will upgrade when i dont have so much uni work to do on it =(

@ anyone hating on Windows 7.
yes it takes more memory etc to run then XP but HONESTLY who who still uses 512mb of ram anymore? especially when 1gb costs about £9-£14 now (source - ebuyer.com)

I'm also running a dual boot with XP on one partition and Windows 7 on another. I'll let it be said that XP is rarely ever used. Windows 7 is fast, stable, compatible and improves upon XP in nearly every way. I don't bother gaming in XP simply because I don't notice a big improvement in framerates. I'm playing Dragon Age: Origins of late and I tried it in both OS's and it ran equally well in both. Not to mention that XP looks fugly and, quite frankly, old in comparison, whereas Windows 7 takes advantage of my hardware and runs so fast and smooth. I think I'm in love; not with Microsoft, but with a well designed product that the public can finally rally behind.

XP was tolerable, Vista was horrible, 7 is great.

There's not much of a quality gap between Windows and Mac OSX Snow Leopard now, which says a lot.

Especially if you take into consideration that 90% of the stuff you can do on a PC you can not do on a Mac.

NaiNaiNai3727d ago

Actually you can only do about 60% of the stuff on mac. You know without having to emulate it and crash half the time.

What are you on about? Must not have read the article...

I have Windows 64bit on my HTC; 32bit on my iMac (only got snow leopard for the bootcamp drivers, lol).
Now, I just have to get vista off my laptop. MS have hit the bullseye with this one.

Edit. I like the fact WMP can play .mts file straight off my HD camcorder
