After installing windows 7 on my desktop a few days ago I had more problems with my vista machine than I did on the windows 7 machine over the same period of time with the same programs installed etc and so I upgraded my laptop up to windows 7 (very brave for me being as its my main machine and I will be using it for all my university work!!) and so far everything has been great! Had a couple of probs installing visual studio 2008 but I don't think its a windows 7 problem. Fair play my WEI went from a 4.9 on vista to a 5.2 on 7!!

I dunno which one to choose.

Windows 7 seems great and I can't wait for it to be out of beta.

Windows Vista has been great for me, runs everthing fine and I love it.

Windows XP was fine for me. As I won't be using it again any time soom at home, Windows XP with the Zune theme will certainly hold a place in my heart in terms of appearance.

Windows 7 Ultimate Beta 32bit, Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit, Ubuntu 8.04 32bit
 
 

They are all good operating systems, but the best by far is 7. It is very fast and it makes up for all of what Vista lacks (which is already very little). It as well has amazing graphics and has some really, really useful and 'cool' features.

Vista has been very good, and I have had no problems with it. I did delete loads of unwanted software they shove in it! Now win 7 is running on the same PC, I see an even bigger speed improvement with lower memory and resources being used. The whole gui looks great too!

Windows 7 >< Windows XPP

Currently I am testing Windows 7 7000 x86 on one of my laptops (fairly new . Lenovo 3000 n100) and am very Impressed with it so far. But It is still in beta mode and I have found quite a few bugs that need work on, or Modifications from MS to smooth it out.

As far as Vista, forget it. I have run it and tested it and repaired it for a few people (and companies) that I do Computer Consulting and Network setup's for.
I Own a copy of Windows Vista x64 and x86 Ultimate and have no reason yet to install it on any of my computers.

I have 8 computers that I use constantly and right now I have Windows XPP x64 on my big box (Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, 8192 MB, NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS & NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200, 3TB's of HDD's). And Windows XPP x86 on 4 others (2 laptops 2 desktops) Windows XP home on my wife's (minitoy) AcerOne and Windows CE 5 on my iPAQ 5555.

I have had computers since 1977 (the first I'll bet you never heard of TRASH80 {Radio Shack TRS-80}), and have used MS OS's since 1987-89 and still have the original copies of Win1.1 - now Win7, I also have servers OS NT3.5-2003.

I Got impressed with Windows when I met Bill and Paul, (the 2 who started Microsoft), back in 1985 and have been a fan since then.
I like Linux but it is not that compatible with the work I like to do, and no matter what Linux fans claim, you still have to work out buggs constantly. The only MS O.S. that was like the buggy Linux was Windows ME. I believe that was a glitch forced by the marketing group at MS.

Name one legit way XP was better... There are none, it was slower and less secure, and wow that should be enough, not to mention it looks like POOP. I just worked on an XP machine tonight, YUCK!
XP did look horrible but that was fixed with visual styles. and remember how long ago it came out now!

Vista was horribly buggy and slow and couldn't run on three quarters of the machines that were supposed to be capable of doing so.
I moved straight from XP to 7!

Unwanted software the comes with Vista...

Care to clarify that? Or are you talking about the unwanted software that an OEM installs bundled on their computers when they sell them to consumers in order to save the consumers money? If so that doesn't come with Vista, that comes because your OEM decided to put it on there....

I mean all the extra files and unwanted programs that slow vista down. Also the small tsr progams that start with vista that are not needed.
I always install my own software and build my own PC's. I wouldnt want anyone else build my PC...lol.
