My first was an Apple II. Integer Basic. Load Programs from cassette tape. Video was RF converter to a black and white TV. I used a hacked version of VisiCalc.

I still have it. Figured it might be collectable some day.

Hi all,
I just bought my laptop last month and it came with Vista Home Premium 64-bit. I recieved my Windows 7 upgrade disk and have decided to dual boot it with Vista, rather than upgrading. I am just curious as to how much trouble it is to remove Vista completely, later on, after I am sure that Windows 7 is compatible with everything that I need. (I have a firmware backup of my cell phone, and on their forum, they say you can't restore the firmware to my cell phone using Windows 7 for some reason.)

Welcome!

Removing Vista is no problem at all. In fact, all that you will likely need to do is just delete the partition.

If it breaks anything, a startup repair always fixes things.

windows 7 is IMHO the best OS out there at the moment, it just works, you can't put your finger on exactly whats right with it, because there isnt any one thing, from pinning icons to the taskbar, to super search, to intelligent memory management (try putting your PC to sleep next time it needs a restart to clear out the RAM, it will clear it out then and there) to Aero Snap, to a compatibility mode that actually WORKS! it all just fits seamlessly

some of it is so basic, remember the days of having to trawl through the start menu to find that program you wanted to launch? i was fixing a pc with vista the other day and needed to access the command prompt, opened the start menu, typed cmd, no results found, it actually makes me wonder why they even bothered putting start menu search into Vista

only gripe is i think certain things, (like command prompt) should default to run as admin, its a bit pointless else,

I have no regrets from leaving Vista for both 7 beta and for Mac OS X at the same time.

The only thing I use my old, slow, totally broken Vista laptop for now is as a backup HTTP server for my website, it has a massive load spead of 0.05Mb per second and a ping that's slower than snail mail.

I'm running 50/50 on this one...

I like win7 well enough, certainly the "new" UI is much easier to get along with.

But I ran into problems with my HTPC ... It's a dual core ATOM/ION machine (ASRock ION 330) and it plays any media I throw at it perfectly under XP, but it just couldn't cope with win7 ... I had to switch is back to XP in the face of a family rebellion...

I still have w7 on my private desktop machine and it's doing ok there. I get occasional (very rare) desktop lockups I haven't figured out yet (reboot and it works fine for another week or two) and I need to be on Win7 for software I'm working on ....

I tried it in my Acer Aspire One netbook and it worked ok there too... But I ran, again into the ATOM processor --lack of horsepower-- problem and wound up putting it back on XP...

So the machine I need the most is making me happy with win7 but I do have to confess to being quite disappointed over the multimedia performance in the HTPC machine...

No, I do not regret it at all... Every system I have is running 7, except one, which I may test it on that one also.

Just switched from Vista to Windows 7 last month and I like 7 just fine.

I started learning about computers when XP was The OS. In 2008 I built my first PC and decided to dual boot XP and Vista. Jeez, I wasn't brainwashed about Vista being craptastic, but I did hate Vista until I learned to employ it as easily as XP. Then I thought it was in many ways better than XP--if you had abundant resourses.

After upgrading to 7 and a few tutorials I shucked XP, moved my Vista to a laptop and I ain't looking back. No regrets.
