Windows 7: Windows 7 Heaven

Windows Vista Ultimate
 
 
Windows 7 Heaven

So Windows 7 is finally coming. Late October is the time when we the users experience Christmas and thank God! I can't stand all these confirmation dialogs. Too much clutter for the system plus Vista itself is slow. I could do way more in XP. Too many unwanted files in Vista, no room to breathe. A new look too and some features taken out I hear. In XP when I had junk files I could run the best programs for those operations and get best results but I couldn't do the same for their Vista counterparts. Sad but true. Everything slows up in Vista even after a few programs have been installed. And after you uninstall the programs and run some junk files removers it's like hell for your system for life. A different interface too and of course, bootleggers. They never seem to go away. Will Microsoft check for valid versions like in Vista? Online and/or off cause it messes up the operations of valid Windows users? I don't want to be punished for the bad actions of a few. I tell you at least I can give my system a clean install and start fresh. And hopefully everything will run smoothly. Just a few more months and, bliss......!!!

Check you later folks.

Yes. Online or off. But the activation system doesn't seem to be any more intrusive than it was in Vista. Really the only thing I don't like about activation is that you can only do it so many times. As much as I reinstall Windows over and over, I hate to use up the activation limit (then need to call up Microsoft to fix it).

There are many reasons behind the problems you've experienced with Vista, but "Vista is a bad OS" is not one of them. Most problems with Vista are due to it being run on hardware that just barely meets the minimum requirements, or not even close.

But I do agree with 100%. Windows 7 is really a fantastic OS to work with. I've never had problems with Vista, and found it to be far superior to XP. And now, Windows 7 is far superior to Vista.

And as for Windows periodically checking whether or not it's a legit licenced copy, that feature has been around since XP, so it's nothing new really. It's designed to messup the bootleggers that copy it. If you're legit, you won't even know it's happening.

I really loathed vista to be honest. I bought a 4000 dollar Dell XPS laptop and Vista ran like like molasses on it. I slapped xp x64 and everything was near instant but they did not have drivers to support that OS and I got so fed up I returned it, built my own desktop that I have right now and slapped and stuck with XP x64 till I tried out Windows 7 RC and I was not as much pleasantly surprised as shocked at how good it was. Nothing or no one is ever going to convince me Vista is NOT a bad OS. And I think the same can be said for office 2007 as well...it simply suffers from this nasty disease called vistaness. It was going to take nearly 1.6 gb of disk space to install an office suite. Screw that! I will stick with 2003 thank you very much.

PS : Vista in Gujarati language means literally '****'

Finaly they made a cool looking and performant OS. seems an update for XP and not for vista. Wista was just a bad joke they made while they was building 7.

Is it my imagination or am I one of the few who actually found Vista to be a great OS?

I feel oh so sorry for those poor, lost souls who prefer to accept rumors and speculation over fact. These are the people who decided that Vista was bad because they allowed OEM and computer stores to sell them poor hardware, or they listed to the Apple ads without realizing that it was nothing but propoganda.

All those people who decided to stick with XP are going to have the hardest time of all moving over to Windows 7. Sure, Vista had it's problems in the start, but so did XP, and they've forgotten that.

I have yet to see one single shred of evidence that conclusively proves beyond all doubt that Vista is as bad as some people believe.

And I'm not thinking of "I heard that so-and-so had such-and-such a problem" or "Vista runs too slowly on my new laptop with 1GB of memory" or "UAC stops me from doing anything" or "I can't find x64 drivers for my 8 year old sound card".

We all know by experience that 95% of what gave Vista such a bad rep was not the fault of Vista, but of hardware manufacturers that installed it onto under-specced hardware, or got caught napping when it came time to update driver software for their hardware products.

Please continue this discussion on this thread: Am I the only one?
