Is Windows 7 really worth it?

Is Windows 7 really worth it to fork out 134€ compared to Vista? Or should I just stay with my old operating system (Vista)? I just use the PC for the Net and e-mail and messenger.

Sundara

depends on how your vista feels to you. win 7 is without a doubt better but they are built on the same foundation. win 7 is more stabile, faster, and has better battery life for laptops.

You have to decide if it is worth the money

I think it is

I'll assume by home you mean home premium (as basic wasn't entirely common on computers).

If you are happy with Windows Vista then you should stay with it, I personally recommend people should move to Windows 7, not only to have the latest, greatest, and prettiest, but to keep up with the times as well as have a more stable system.

Is this home edition home basic or home premium?

I think Win7 is worth it, but if Vista works fine for you, stay with Vista.

18 months of flawless function with Vista HP 32 bit. Since 'upgrading' to 7, nothing but crashes and lockups. All the right drivers bios etc, etc. Will be moving back to Vista this weekend and hope the service pack or such like might improve things.

I'm sorry to hear you've been having problems, you are free to post questions here (create a new thread though) to see if the problems can be resolved.

I am in love with Windows 7. It just 'feels' right. As someone mentioned up top, it is faster, more reliable, prettier, and more user friendly. I can't express how much I love it.

If you're in a position asking other people whether or not it's worth it, or don't have an aversion to the current OS you're using, then I think it's better to keep what you have and spend that money on something else, especially if all you do is surf and send emails.

Windows 7, though, is without a doubt my favorite OS, as I've always had problems/things I dislike about XP and Vista.

It kinda feels like when I got my supra..."just right"

I can't get Win7 to crash even on a old Toshiba satellite.

How old?

It's a A46-S150

P4 1gig RAM, 60gig HD. Runs amazing. I am actually freaked its running so well.

If your crashing you got something configured wrong, bad driver or bad hardware.

As for changing to Win 7 worth it?

HELL YA!!!!
