Windows 7: Things I Like about W7

Things I Like about W7

I couldnt find a thread about this, probably just cant find it. Sorry if dupplicated.

Here are some of the things I like about it....and why I pre-ordered it.

#1. Its not Vista
#2. It is Vista (Done Right!)
#3. Pretty Like Vista, yet Fast and Stable Like XP!
#4. Drivers for Vista usually work for W7 (in a pinch).
#5. Works well with Games (even older COD2)
#6. It really uses all my Ram, XP just kept loading up page file and would
have 3 Gig Ram Free!
#7. Stayed fast after installing all my games and programs!
#8. Pre order pricing!

Side note on stability, I noticed much better handling of errors even with overclocking. I have a dual boot and while testing OC settings XP would BSOD frequently when system was unstable, W7 would close a program or tell me a driver stopped responding and kick me back to desktop, rare BSOD I think I have only seen 1 or 2 the entire time with RC!

Sonixmon,

Thanks for your information, I hope in a few days I am also a happy Windows 7 user, I still have to be patient to receive Windows Home Premium Edition 7 English Intl DVD. I hope no strikes are going on in UK. ;-)

Have a nice day!
