Windows 7: What's your SF story?

I joined here as I was having trouble upgrading my old PC from XP to W7, shame I can't find the thread as it was an interesting read for me. It never got solved but I think I figured it out since, old news though as it was a lifetime ago (or so it seems).

I lurked for a couple of years after that trying to learn stuff, I was amazed at the amount of knowledge on here. I finally started trying to help out and learned more in the process, and with the help and guidance of a few certain members (I won't name them, they know who they are) I gained some pretty in depth hardware knowledge, a much greater knowledge of W7 and gained two badges I always took for granted were way beyond my reach.

Got to love SF.

A rather good topic well done . Good to see something different in this section.

I originally had issues with computers. I began to learn the operating system the hard way and learning from other members here. Now I am where I am today .

I had a new Windows 7 PC, went looking for Windows 7 forums. Found this place, saw the total post count was low, so joined to help them out

Posted a few help answers, got a friend request from Jonathan King, laughed to find a Skilled badge, and was hooked. They seem to tolerate me, so I stay...

Mine! :P

My first PC came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Basic (Yep that is right, my first PC is an OEM junk :X) and I got pissed off by the poor performance of my computer thinking I need to upgrade something. What I did is buy a processor 5 days after it was released, I still wasn't happy with the performance so I bought a card (8800 GT, Died on 2011). There I was happy until one of my friends advised me to upgrade to Windows 7 and he even showed me a demo of his comparison of a game running on Vista and 7 and I was interested! So I went and buy a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium and compared the performance myself and there is the end of my story.

LOL I hope you didn't sleep while you were reading this (I dunno how to make it short xD)
