Windows 7: General Community Related Question

The Windows 7, 8, and 10 forums were never really split as they were always separate. There are advantages and disadvantages in separate and integrated forums and neither is clearly superior to the other. I have no particular issues with separate forums and I expect it be even less of a problem for the large majority of people who come here for help, most of whom are using only one OS.

As an experiment as to whether it would be better to combine all Windows versions into one forum we acquired PC help forums to see how that format would work, It's nowhere near as good as the separate forums.

As for the separation being better to stop arguments between fanboys of any particular operating system verbally abusing others who choose to use a different operating system, this is never an issue - if anybody starts it they'll soon be banned from all our sites permanently


I personally like Johns forums just the way they are.
Efficient, polite and full of help and information that isn't hard to find.
When one compares Johns forums to the many other forums on the net, John and his people keep the forum enjoyable. Places to learn and help others. To me a big thumbs up is the forms are not overly cluttered.

To John (z3r010) and his helpers; GOOD JOB.

I sometimes work on PCs for friends and coworkers. I recently had reason to wonder if the Windows 7 Product Key would work on an prebuilt machine in the same way XP used to. What I mean is, may I use an OEM disk to reinstall on a prebuilt using the PCs own Key? Thanks! Steve
