Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
I'm getting withdrawl features -- No new leaks / builds to install .

W7 has been solid and stable - I installed Enterprise from Technet not a glitch yet-- with the latest updates even IE8 works properly.

Still need XP VM however for some legacy apps that won't ever run on W7. (Actually changed from XP VM to a W2K3 server VM -- still runs the legacy apps fine and consums less resources than the XP dessktop OS).

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

Lovin it. I only boot into my XP to get my anti virus updated. And when in XP it looks and feels very antiquated to me now.

One week or so later, I see the TV Offer
for a pre-installed Win 7 (and four times the memory
and twice the speed of the Vista (non-refundable).

The 7 is great (and as has been said, one needs
to get used to where things are.

However I'm not upgrading my Vista right now because
my Mobile Rogers Rocket USB works with Vista
but they (Rogers or manufacturer ZTE have not
come up with a Win 7 Driver, yet.)

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32 bit/Windows 10 64bit

Is it that long, I feel as if I've been using it forever
I tried it for a short while when it first came out in public beta then when it launched I had the pre-order copy of Home Premium and installed in a dual boot with Vista. I've only been back into Vista I think once since and that was to do a WET transfer.

I keep meaning to boot back into Vista just to bring it up-to-date but forget, my husband turns the machines on before I get up so by that time it's quite happily showing my screensaver in Windows 7 so I just carry on for the rest of the day.

I haven't come across anything yet that wouldn't work, even my old model printer worked straight off but of course I had to install the software for it as it's an all-in-one and without the software I had no way of keeping an eye on ink levels or access to the maintenance tools.
The next test is to see if my Nintendo Wifi dongle will work as I refuse to lower the security on my router and the DS only does WEP, and I want to download the weekly puzzles for Professor Layton and Pandora's Box.

So my verdict for the first 100 days is very good and glad I got it.

Win 7 RTM 7600 Ultimate 64-bit

Been using Win7 x64 for about six months now on my home machine. Short answer - Love it... Both as a user and as 'the admin' for our home network I find Win7 very stable and with it's built in support for more devices much easier to deal with in general.

Ironically, I was "updated" from XP to Vista at work about a month ago. There are similarities between Win7 and Vista that make it easier to use both, but there are more annoyances in Vista that make me wish I could run Win7 at work.

Try it with the Vista drivers on 7. You'll like it!

A great deal of the updated drivers are still Vista for a number of hardwares, devices but still work on 7! As far as backward compatibility I manage to get more older XP versions of programs running on the 32bit 7 then on the 32bit Vista previously run including one finally running that will no longer need to see XP or Vista go back on.

Ubuntu Lunix and Windows 7

Minor issues...most notable the dread 6 second stutter on certain LiveTV channels in Media Center, but otherwise it's just been top drawer. 9/10.

My first days with a Windows 8 phone
I became adventurous and spent $79 for a Windows 8 phone. I said to myself what can you lose, I spent similar money for a USB stick. But what I can gain is some experience - as if I needed that at my age, LOL. My first impressions are mixed. There are really 3 parts to it. 1. The Nokia part...
