Windows 7: Windows 7 stability

Windows 7 stability

I was curious as to how stable Windows 7 is right now. It is currently in candidate release, correct?

I'm running the official RC 7100 with some commercial and free software. Rock-stable!
The newer leaks should be even better. Not sure how you can improve "0" crashes, though :-)

I assume over time anny driver conflicts will even be less likely if you have any.

Would you say it is in better shape than Vista when it was in this stage?

For me it works better than Vista with SP1.
Some software you have may not be updated to be fully compatible yet. Might work better with a newer release of W7, though. All AutoCAD, Trane Trrace etc. work. there is a software thread about compatibility, you migth want to inquire with the manufacturer in case you have an expensive software you are worried about.

I suppose most vendors won't give their official blessing for W7 before October no matter what.

Do not use registry cleaners... those will destroy any system. Many threads here too.

This is the most stable, polished OS that I have ever seen at the RC/RTM stage! This has the feel of the mature OS that Vista wanted to be, but never made the grade. I would enthusiastically recommend this as anyone's main OS, and coming from a Linux Geek, this is high praise indeed!

Very worth it

Thanks for the info.

On another note, I used to be able to run 32 bit Vista with no issue, but 64 bit, on the other hand

Ugh, I guess I should remove CCleaner.

64 bit has huge support now, and Windows 7 is packed with drivers.

you can just use the cleaning option of CCleaner. that works for me well and saves some space.

With the registry... if you feel comfortable to manually edit the registry you don't need registry cleaners. the only time I use the ccleaner registry analyzer is when I need to completely deinstall a software to re-install it to find where it left traces. then I manually delete the entries ccleaner finds. but only of what I need to deinstall. NEVER let it do anything automatically. There is nothing to gain, no increase in speed. At least none that woudl be worth the risk.
sometimes you don't notice something is wrong until you start an application and it has flaws. Often reinstalling the application will fix it. but it is a pain.. and no gain.

Some people say the CCleaner registry fix is very mild and not hurtful. But I don't think anyone noticed a gain in speed. And how would it?

Over many years I tried to optimize my OS and ended up reinstalling it because of such "improvements".

Edit: 64 bit definitely, it is the future. Many heavy software is native 64 bit (CAD etc.)

Tweaking Windows 7 for speed/stability
OK. I have this wonderfully powerful machine. It multi-tasks more than it runs anything that puts a load on it. The largest load I run is VirtualBox running XP as a dual-core 4 Gig machine. With that, I'm at like 12% load, and 49% memory usage. What tweaks do should I consider for the OS...
