Windows 7: Anyone regret moving to Windows 7?

29 Oct 2009   #11

Windows Seven x64

I thought Vista was a great OS, Better than XP (I thought) I did Beta test Windows 7 in January and loved it from there.. I had vista on my laptop and it worked fine run ok but I expected more out of it when I bought it..When i tried Windows 7 beta my laptop run like it was brand new I was so amazed how fast and responsive it was..Now i did have more programs on Vista than Windows 7 and that might of cased it to run faster.But Now I have Windows 7 Pro on my used to be Vista Laptop and runs a lot smoother than Vista did..So I don't regret moving to Windows 7 very stable OS..

So if you do upgrade remember to back up your data and if you brought from a manufacturer MAKE Recovery Disks.. just in case..:)

I was very pleased with Vista but I enjoy W 7 better; there's always the dual boot option for a while if you choose.

Look in the Start Menu for any options by HP that say recovery.

I'm currently still using vista (waiting on windows 7 to supposedly arrive monday) and, I like vista. one thing I'm gonna try to do before I install windows 7 is copy the movie maker files onto a flash drive so I can install vista movie maker into windows 7 (I hate live movie maker, it's not really even a video editor). by the way, where is the post with the batch file that provided a fix to the vista-in-windows 7 compatibility issues? I'm probably going to need that! lol

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

Have been using Windows 7 as my primary Operating System for about a year and I am not regretting anything .

I still work with XP and Vista on a daily basis and accept that these can both be acceptable when correctly configured on suitable hardware but neither come close to Windows 7 as an out of the box experience

For an avid Vista user like me, the main advantage of w7 is the smaller footprint and better performance. As far as function and user interface goes, it is somewhat different but no progress - just different.

I could not agree more!

Transitioning-no, upgrading to 7 will be one of the best PC choices you've made.
