Windows 7 Ultimate x86-64

I'd say its installing too many useless freeware apps followed by hardware problems.

Windows 7 Ultimate

It certainly is a perception thing - the majority of posts are regarding specific problems, what's great is senior people (senior in experience, not necessarily in age :) ) who often have a very good idea of what the root problem is likely to be.

After a while I'm sure the number of people posting problems will settle down (as people find that their problem has been encountered before). It is fun to find a problem though that you can help figure out...

Win7 pro x64

We are all seeking free help here, so we present problems. Go to any car forum, specific to a car model, and it will look like the car is a lemon.

I have to agree with this. A lot of problems are user induced problems.

Windows 7 Ultimate, OS X 10.7, Ubuntu 11.04

Every OS has its problems. Windows 95 did, Windows XP did, Windows Vista did, Windows 7 does.

Even OS X has problems, so does Linux. As mentioned earlier in this thread no technology is perfect. :)

Most of the issues we are dealing with over in the Installation/Setup trenches are dual boots that users want to abandon in a few hours or days.

This is the strongest endorsement of Win7 I've seen, as even us beta testers took weeks or months to give up our dual boots.

Each one of these dual boot extractions is solvable but involves: using a partition manager disk to delete the first XP/Vista partition, mark the Win7 active then move it over to include the first partition's space, then finally run Win7 Startup Repair repeatedly to rebuild the boot.

I would guess we've done several dozen of these and each is a long involved thread, each also a credit to Win7's instant likeability.

I was going to tell the OP to glance over at Vistax64...
