Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

Hi saverio,

Welcome to the forums.

I too still have Vista installed, but almost never boot into it. Usually to remember how I did something there to answer someone's question.

XP Pro SP3 x86 | Windows 7 x86 Build 7000

I personally think unless you have a certain game you play a lot that won't work in 7, then its fine to use as primary os.
All apps i use work and it performs fine on both my laptop and desktop.

Hi saverio and welcome to the Seven Forums

Have now got a Quad boot again but find myself almost exclusively in Windows 7 (x86, as I have a few periferal issues with x64), only boot into Vista now to run my regular scans (I always scan system disks from within that os. )

Hi and welcome.
Like many of the others, I have vista 64 and Win7 64 both installed....but I've not booted back into vista since W7 release day, which has really surprised me!

Windows 2000 5.0 Build 2195

This is my Main OS, on my Main machine, on my hard drive. I backed up my HD in to a .vhd file before I upgraded so I can return when I'm done evaluating but some idiot deleted that back-up (my fault anyway since I just borrowed the external HDD..)

I'm basically forced to accept this as my main OS (I wanted to revert), and there's just too much here to simply reformat it. In the long run I learned to love it, and indeed right now I do. I've used Easus free partition manager to move my files so I can create another partition. And from there I installed Vista in any case I need it. I'm happy with just Windows 7 though, it has bugs but it's bearable. If it's too much, I can always dual boot on the vista partition :P

Vista x64 / 7 X64

Hi all,

7x64 is my default now. Still go into Vista to send emails as WLM crashes on 7 every time I try to do that. That's what the feedback is for - makes people feel better to think they're being heard.

If 7 would boot faster than Vista , that would be better. It's only 8-10 seconds slower, so I expect the final build will do that.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32 bit/Windows 10 64bit

I'm dual booting with Vista but I boot into Windows 7 by default and so far I'm finding that all my stuff is working. I've only been using it since last Saturday so still finding my way around but I've had no problems and even managed to bring some things over from Vista while working in Windows 7

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (build 7000)

Only have 7 here and no regrets. Have been very impressed and will most likely buy the release version at the end of the beta rather than go back to vista.

XP Pro and Windows 7

Hi All

There were some major steps in Windows.
Win 3.1 was a good one WIN98 kept me long time happy then XP and I always was saying that I donít need more then XP. I never tried Vista.
And now I found Windows 7 (in mistake). I was planning to install my XP new, because it became slow. I had all backups and I just gave it a try with Windows 7. Never went back and donít like to go back.
I am afraid about August that I cannot buy Windows 7 here in Brazil and must go back to XP.
Please Microsoft (if you can hear me in this Forum):
-Donít make it more slow
-Work hard and donít let me run again XP

Thanks and Regards Mikel

I'm pretty happy right now because after eight agonisingly long hours of failing, i've finally managed to dual boot OSX Leopard and Windows 7. I know it's Leopard and Snow Leopard and Lion are out, I plan to upgrade soon but i'm enjoying it while it's working :) ...

Finally, guys, finally! I got my hand on a brand-new Windows 7 Home Premium! It's a full version, too. I really have to thank my dad because otherwise I wouldn't be proceeding to backup everything today! But, I'll be keeping Vista...
