and many patches to come :)
Also: a bucketload of marketing crap.
So they can sell Windows 9 straight after.. Say all the Vista owners..
hating all the time. I remember when Windows XP FIRST came out, it was as unstable as Vista was when it first came out. Sure Vista isnt as good for gaming as XP is, but then thats obviously going to be the case if Windows uses more memory etc to run. Windows Vista SP1 IS completely fine and stable, i am running it on my laptop and running Windows 7 on my desktop, i will upgrade my laptop (for free cos of purchase date) but thats because i like some of the new features on windows 7, but i would be happy to stay with vista if i wasnt able to upgrade. STOP THE HATE!
Windows 7 was my last Microsoft purchase, I cannot believe their charging people for this stuff. Read on and you'll understand why... I've used Vista for quite some time now, my full tower and laptop were both Vista 64bit with service pack 2 installed. At first there were some minor issue with Steam and the Zune software. Fast forward and here I am running Windows 7 64bit... the result? Aesthetically indifferent with a few minor tweaks. Don't get me wrong, 7 does fix some issues, both apparent and unknown, the fact is, Windows 7 IS Windows Vista. Charging Vista users for an *upgrade* is a slap in the face.
Some people feel quite the opposite about it. I personally won't buy Windows 7 or Windows Vista because I am quite happy with XP. Other people have expressed quite vehemently that Windows 7 is awesome and is much better than Vista and is not the same as Vista. Since you are saying now that 7 is Vista with a few tweaks, I don't know who to believe. A lot of critics have given Windows 7 higher scores, and though that doesn't immediately sway my opinion (because I think MS could pay them), even the guy who made Linux says he likes it.
Microsoft isnt the only company charging for "upgrades" I pay for my iPod Touch to be upgraded now and again, and i am pretty sure mac users have to pay about £100 every other year for upgrades, right? (i know it USE to be the case at least)
If u can't see the night and day differences in Vista and Windows 7 you need to stop talking about things you know nothing about. Stability and legacy app support are 2 big ones for me.
Bring it !
what the hell is wrong with you, you automatically praise anything microsoft related. I use MS OS's, but that's no reason to get down and suck it
whats wrong with you? why cant someone want a new product to come out with improvements? hes not even saying that the new product is going to be good, he could be wanting it to come out just to see if microsoft embarrass themselves again like with Vista when it first came out. WHAT IS WITH ALL THE FREAKIN HATE?! -.-'
I have windows 7 installed on all my PCs now, it is that good. I even replaced XP on my netbook.
Good . Home group ftw !
MS has to seriously their business if it consists of them expecting the market to turn on its ear every few years for a new OS that does little that new to the old OS.
Not official and I agree the industry cannot switch out OS's every other year. I think MS will be sticking with Win7 for a long time.
windows 7 is alright dont think 8 will come out soon. Dont know if we need 128 bit support yet you can already use massive amount of ram in 64 bit windows and most pc and laptop dont support more then 4 gig at the moment.
We dont have and wont have 128 bit address spaces in pc cpu's for a long time, so no.. 128 bit support in the title of this article, just makes me Think its a very ignorant person who wrote it
That's funny because in a MS job listing about a month ago, it listed the features of windows 8 that were already being developed, 128bit was one of them. But I suppose they're wrong, and you know better. Thanks for checking your facts so you don't come across as an idiot...that would be a terrible shame if that happened
As a Mac user I am really impressed with Windows 7. I probably could not ask for more, it is the best version of Windows on the market. Kudos to MS for this literation of their operating system.
I've just recently got a new PC and I've been running Windows 7 both at home and at my office and it is by the far the BEST OS I have ever used. I'm running all kinds of old apps and my Windows 7 64bit is running it all in stride and not a single issue. I'm not even thinking about Windows 8 because I am enjoying Win 7 immensely. MS deserves big props on this one. My only complaint would be the difficult upgrade path for WinXP user's but I would suggest anyone using a system older than 2 years old think about a hardware upgrade as well.
