Doesn't seem to be as good as Vista
So I recently went to Windows 7 due to all the hype and talk of how great it is. I never had issues with Vista but I decided to move to Windows 7 either way since a friend offered me his 64Bit CD because he only needed the 32Bit and $30 dollars later I had Windows 7 Ultimate ( Bought key on ebay, hence the "$30 dollars".. I know most don't advise that we do this but I already did so I hope I don't get badgered to much over that fact).. My problem is Windows 7 just seems to have some slow response issues and a slow start up.. Maybe I didn't install it properly? I did a boot from disk and advanced option during install for a clean install but I don't know if I was supposed to format or if it would do that automatically during a clean install... I did have the windows old file so I don't think it formatted unless that would appear no matter what? After installing some software and games I finally got around to installing o&o defrag and running it but I didn't expect it to show very much fragmentation since I was on a new install which was not the case because it was around 37.00 fragmentation which I brought down to nothing within a couple hours but I still don't understand why it was so high on a fresh Windows install

There should not be a performance problem if properly installed. That is one of the advantages of Windows 7 - it is faster and has a smaller footprint than Vista. There are a few other features that are also superior to Vista (Taskbar, Libraries, Trim support, Homegroup, etc.). But in terms of overall function, I prefer Vista too. They have added a lot of eye candy to Windows 7 but deleted many useful Vista function in the process. Besides, the interface to get to the system settings is a real mess. You have to be a good scout to find them.
