And then we are faced with, "I'm running to Apple." And we are left with a dilemma of trying to decide if we should let you guide yourself in error or give a last ditch effort to help.
Of my 18 years on earth, that's one of the best pieces of advice i have ever heard, well said torrentg, couldn't have said it better myself.

Right Uber Phil, thank you.

Yes! lol Believe it or not, there are times things don't work for me either. If I said to myself something like, "Damn this Windows...etc...etc", it would never be alleviated.

I know better though that I am probably doing something wrong. I then Google for the issue and learn. Then I don't have any problem any longer.

Moral of the story is that even advanced users make mistakes and have to learn still. Not a hardware or OS fault.

I used Vista Home Premium 64 bit because that's what was pre-installed on my laptop. Because it was already at SP1 I found it to be fairly usable with only a couple of minor quirks. Those quirks were ironed out by SP2 and I was pretty happy with Vista from that point on. I am running Win 7 Pro now and really like it. I have about 30 less processes running and overall the laptop seems snappier. There will be a learning curve, but there always is when switching operating systems. I've had no software or driver issues, although I know some people have. Overall I'm satisfied with 7 and have no regrets about switching.

NEVER looked back......

im getting more & more ppl contact me now saying how much they love ''Windows 7'', & even more ringing me up wondering if its worth the upgrade from ''vista'', to which i reply.....''YES'', especially for standard H/W.... enthusiasts rigs handle vista perfectly well but ''Windows 7'' delivers that performance all the way down the H/W scale.

OK, since you guys obviously have much more expertise in these matters than I do, and a lot of what you say makes sense, you have convinced me to give Windows 7 a go.

Some have said I do not need to upgrade to Ultimate. I currently have Vista Ultimate 32-bit. When I run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, it tells me my only upgrade choice is to Ultimate. Is that true?

Hello maryomalley, welcome to Seven Forums!


If you're used to Ultimate why not ease the 'learning curve' and stay with Ultimate?

I use windows 7 Home Premium x64 a short period now.
Before I used Windows Vista Home Premium x86.

I don't want to go back to Vista, long shutdown times, much disk activity, slow responsiveness.

In my case Windows 7 is perfect. ;-)

Have a nice day!
