Windows 7: I am sticking with Vista - convince me otherwise

20 Sep 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Mint 9

KiWiTT, a ton of us on here are using the RTM, myself included.
It runs great.

As for Civ4, I cannot imagine it would not work.
I agree with Antman and the others, dual boot it and try it out. If you like it and Civ4 works, then upgrade if you want.

If not, keep using Vista.
Its up to you.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit

I suppose Vista is alright, its very similar to that of Windows 7, but then again, Windows 7 uses less of your system resources to run, its faster than Vista, even faster than XP was when loading, the system is more responsive, its intelligent.That's why I've chosen it over Windows XP (my trusted favourite) and Vista.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Buying Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

I have core i7 and 6Gb of RAM and 10,000 rpm HDD. Did consider getting a SDD, but not justified yet.

Bye bye Vista ... It was fun knowing you.
