Firstly the 3 'no' must be a type (7267 screens LOL).

Secondly for an OS to recieve SUCH an ovation (standing, at that!) while it's still in it's beta stages is just outstanding. Sure, there are issues, but that's not 100% the fault of the OS, manufacturers/developers also need to catch up

Can't wait to walk into my local retailer & pick up a nice new shiny copy of Windows 7 and hand my money over. I can already see the bewidered look on the casheir's face, even after I tell him/her that i've been using it as my main OS since January LOL

I didn't know this. Thanks. But it is 2 clicks, not 1. Waste of time.

Not going to be rude.

One extra click is not going to make the world come to a stop. For an overall better Operating System I think people could live with one extra click.

If you do not like the OS why are you even using it if you do not mind me asking?

You forgot to mention the ugliness of XP.


As for the poll, I voted yes. XP/Vista ran fine on my computer but with Vista Halo 2 would lag like crazy, and I didn't feel like hacking Halo 2 to install it on XP.

Atleast with W7 I get the best of all worlds (except the linux/osx world), Speed, beauty and performance.

Windows 7 far outperforms both XP and Vista. I was running XP on a netbook with 1GB of RAM, and it was unbelievably slow. Load Windows 7 onto the same machine, and it absolutely flies, even with Aero turned on.

Yes, against Vista but I'm refusing to vote on the grounds that you cant really put it up against XP...

It's like comparing the newest Lambo with one of their old tracktors lol! Different ball game IMO. (runs for cover......)
