Windows 7: I like 7 so far, my rating 7.5/10

XP Pro 32 Bit
I like 7 so far, my rating 7.5/10

Been running XP Pro 32 forever.
Installed Windows 7 on a second hard drive with the following core following components.
Asus M3A78-EM motherboard
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+(2x2Ghz.)
4GB. of of DDR2 memory.

I like what I see in Windows 7 so far, and the performance seems just as good as XP, the install was fast and boot up time better.
Had to go to Windows update for 3 drivers, only 1 item did not not have a driver available,
An ancient Pinnacle TV tuner card, PCTV Rave, everything else is working.

I skipped Vista, but Windows 7 has got me interested, just have to get use to the GUI, and a couple other minor things.
My rating is 7.5/10 for Windows 7
XP is still ahead 8/10

I would be happier if MS actually does something with the defrag, basically same setup since 98... what about defrag on fly, sorta like magicDefrag

My rating would be 8.5 out of 10,I think once its relaesed they should have everything that was reported fixed, then I will give it a 9.5 out of 10, hey I can't just give it a 10, its M$, they always have room for improvement.
