Windows 7: Back to Windows vista and it is a nightmare..

Windows 7 Ultimate
Back to Windows vista and it is a nightmare..

I recently got dell studio 15, it has windows vista, and its been a nightmare, since it runs horribly compared to windows 7, I have windows 7 on my desktop, and vista on my laptop, I already got 6 BSOD, related to drivers and registry problems, now I never had this problems in windows 7, It feels like a huge downgrade going from windows 7 to vista, even with sp2 installed, I will be getting the windows 7 family pack when windows 7 comes out :)

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1

I got to format my Vista because it became sluggish and buggy over time. I never really had problems with it.

For Windows Seven, I have to random temporary small freeze I don't like. Like in Vista. But, it's indeed faster overall.

I've been running Windows 7 as my main (and only ) OS since the BETA 7000. No BSOD, Crash, Hang or general problems....Works like a dream

Can't wait to purchase W7 Ultimate when it's released

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Running both

My first partition runs Vista Home Premium x64 and my second partition runs Win7 x64 RC 7100. I have been using the Win7 partition as my primary os since it was installed and have no regrets as it is extremely stable and more than meets my current needs.

Kept the Vista for the Win7 upgrade (clean) processes and I am moving all related info, docs, software, etc to the Win7 RC partition to hold until the primary partition is rebuilt with Win7. Then Bye-Bye RC partition 2 and hello single partition and system tweaking. It will be nice not to have to keep two partitions up to par but what can you do.

Have been testing Win7 on my DELL Latitude C600 1ghz/512meg ram and it appears to run extreamly well other than AREO which I don't need there anyway. I will restore XP back prior to the Win7 upgrade (Thank god for Windows Home Server and full system restores). Home theater still runs Vista Home Premium and I plan an in-place upgrade just to test without a clean install as it is just an entertainment system which can be rebuilt if necessary but from what I've heard it probably won't be necessary.

The one thing I will say is my Vista partition is ROCK STABLE and doesn't give me any heartburn since SP1 and some tweeking of the system to make it work my way. The system is good enough if Win7 wasn't available but it is and it is what we Vista users were promised a few years ago when Vista rolled out. Long delay and quite a few lie's on M$ part but they did finally get it right. Sad it took so long. Purchased 3 copies of Win7 Home Premium during initial half price sale (Disappointed with M$ over family pack being same price as once again they show their disdain for the loyal customers) and a lack of a Win7 Professional family pack is just plain dumb. I guess they don't think anyone with a home network would want or need things like bit locker, RDP, or XP compatibility because everyone knows that the home users can afford to purchase all new peripherals to go with their new Win7 pc's. or upgrade to Professional to get full use of their Windows Home Server.

Win 7 Pro x64, VM Win XP, Win7 Pro Sandbox, Kubuntu 11

Three days ago I finally removed Vista completely from my system. At present all my computers (3) are running Windows 7 Evaluation (90 Days). One is running Windows Virtual PC RC and XP Mode (XPM RC). Been using Win 7 since November, 2008. Had some problems with drivers, and XP legacy programs, however, since 7600 there has not been a single problem (reason for going with the evaluation version). One of those computers is my new iMac 24" (bought three days ago). Still knotting on wood. :)

windows 7 ultimate final Office 2007,27 Quad IMAC vm 7 64 bit

I have been running windows 7 from the beginning, It is stable and actually pretty fast. I hate to admit it but the 27 inch quad core IMAC has got my attention, I am wondering if anyone has any recogmendations, I am a PC but the Mac really is interesting. Should I? I know I have opennned a can of worms but it is wintertime below 20 degrees and winter is just starting. With fusion 3 it says it can be seamless, Most of what I dio is photo stuff. Thanks
