Windows® 8 Pro (64-bit)

The one and only Windows 7. . . Because we should adapt to changes.

I just stepped back into my XP(32bit) production computer after a month of not using it.

This thing is blazing compared to 7100(64 bit). Memory management still seems steps ahead of windows 7. I was liking windows7 more, but it might have been because I wasn't really stressing the system, once I started it felt very sluggish.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Well I have to say on my DV7 I'm going with Windows 7, guess you can say I'm already saving some cash here and there for my copy. On my other laptop the DV5 I have to go with XP 32bit, just due to the memory on it. I might buy some more ram soon so then I might want to load 7. Guess it all comes down to what hardware I'm using and where Im heading that day.

Windows 7 RC1 Build 7100 32-bit

I am loving Win7. 7 continually surprises me by how stable it is, and its only in the RC phase, just think how nice the RTM version will be. Only thing I think MS should do is make just two versions. One for all of us, and one for enterprise or one for us and one for servers. I don't think we need multiple versions of the same OS. Other than that I like Win7, and if it continues to work as well as it has I will buy a copy.

Not a MS fanboy. I like computers period, and have used many different OS's and they all serve a purpose. But MS has surprised me.

Good by XP, you are old, and I am over you. its on to the next MS OS. I am using Win7 full time and it runs great. Even on only 1 gig RAM! I am upgrading my RAM soon, and it will be even better.

There you go, thats what I think.

7068 64 bit + XP Pro

After the novelty of 7's pretty face wore off, and the realisation that 64 bit computing is just another marketing tool, i am back to using XP Pro.

My much needed software VOIP ( Freshtel), Nostromo games controller, and elderly Canon scanner work great with XP but not with 7.

XP aint broken so i dont intend to bother with anything else anytime soon .

Windows 7 RC1 Build 7100 32-bit

Good points. I'm not a hardcore early adoptor. I like Win7 and I say use what you like, whatever gets the job done. I'm not much for debating which OS is better, I just use the one I like. Wish it didn't need so much RAM, or HD space. but so far so good.

I still have an XP box too. Its getting jelous of Win7 though.

its all a trade off. More specs to run the new OS in order to use the eye candy, but I like it.

We'll see how well the RTM does.
