For me , not completly.
It needs many corners to be defined and ironed down..
Like?

If you had actually elaborated on the issues you have we maybe able to assist you in overcoming any anxieties you may have but to just start and leave you statements unfinished is absurd.

N.B Windows 7 is the best bit of kit Microsoft has ever churned out!

Agree. It's solid-as-a-rock. It "just works".

haha just works. Nice.

Although its really good, i have found some minor issues.

But overall, I have adjusted to what I can't change and have changed what could be adjusted....

Really it is way better than XP. I didn't play much with Vista, but I can say this is the best system they have made.

how right you are..

Maybe it was a hasty statement or maybe i am new in using W7.
Two weeks only, and yesterday a complete crash of my 500 hard drive and the system is dead with the loss of important files.
It is a brand new HP Pavilion dv6000 with i7 Intel and W7+IE8.
All that compouded and added insult to injury...............

But it began after using XP for a long time.
Suddenly i had to find out my way thru all those services like control panel... searches.. changing wallpapers and dealing with icons on desktop and etc....
The worst experience was when i copied my files from another HP Pavilion and wanted to work on them.
Deny access on all files.
i went for the ownership and manipulated my way inside the security zone without success.
Suddenly i copied one file to another folder and Voila..
So I copied all files and complete directories to other files and everything went into order.
So the begining was bad and I put the blame on the new OS which is fair but not correct.
Therefore maybe you are alright with your comment.
waiting for my new hard drive now and will begin surfing again.. and will see.

Well, I wouldn't say 'best'... Cause there is always room for improvement.

I know some of us old style users would have liked a less 'user friendly' interface for some things. And by 'less 'user friendly'', as in not wanting to have wizards for some things. I hated category view in XP, still hate it for Win 7.

I still hate having to go hunt down when I want to change the screen saver when I was able to do that right clicking on the desktop or the screen size, which is buried somewhere else.

I hate the login screen options which I have spent at least several days to find out you can't get rid of that damn picture frame and have a normal blank login box when dealing with company/enterprise level installs.

Miss some of the old screen savers, like flying through space for one.

Miss some of the old sound themes.

Now, even with all that hate, some of the things I do like...

Being able to pin programs into the taskbar and having programs ordered in a certain way (Yes, some of us have our OCDs, this is mine)

Slightly better task switching, the view method easier to determine which window you are switching to.

Noticeable increase in some applications and games due to memory management.

Included with the Retail Versions 32 bit and 64 bit disks (Originally, you had to specifically purchase 64 bit in order to use 64 bit prior to Vista.)

Some better tools to examine system resources.

There are still a lot of things to get used to, but I will say it is better than Vista.

It's just a step above ME in quality - ok, that's a lie
Win7 is so far a kick butt OS
Fairly impressive with customization and so far I have been able to fix every nuance I have run into so far

A couple concerns with backwards compatibility for programs that worked in XP - but I guess that rests with the software manufacturers and not MS?

And if that's not the case - why not virtualization for all versions of 7?

But all in all, this OS is nice and very little complaints and much praise

Nice one MS!

When I installed Windows XP soon after its launch, I was not very happy with it. I felt much of the controls had been taken away from the user and the OS became the driver rather than the user. I had a dual boot system with Windows ME and continued to use Windows ME for a long time alongwith XP. But as I became familiar with the nittty gritties of Windows XP, at one stage I jettisoned Windows ME and shifted to XP fully. XP did involve a fresh learning curve.

My run with Windows Vista was short. I was a late adopter - after much of it was improved - but still it did not enthuse me and I grabbed Windows 7 as soon as the evaluation version was released and since then there was no looking back.

No other Windows version had impressed me more and I am happy with it. Windows 7 is the best that Microsoft has done so far.

Well, it may still not meet the expectations and requirements of a select few but then for a majority of users there could not be any major complaints. ( I still hate the UAC but familiarity has bred acceptance and an additional click. )

Win 7 is Vista#2!

Microsoft and all manufacturers have had years to iron out most problems, tweak here and there and get the darn drivers out!

Win 7 Ultimate in UK full retail boxed £160
Microsoft rip-off price for Vista Ultimate was over £400!!
Which majority did not buy!

You realise when running XP virtualised, that you open your pc up (online) to all the security risks inherent in XP!

You have to make sure you are right up to date with all the security fixes for XP.
