Windows 7: Two month with Seven 7000 x64... back to Vista and ...

Two month with Seven 7000 x64... back to Vista and ...

...hhhooowww that's fast !!

Everybody say that Seven is faster than Vista
Even in built 7000 (public beta) everybody say that Seven run really well.

Today after using Seven 7000 x64 during 2 month I booted my Vista home Premium 32bit.. and my first thought was: Damn Vista is so fast ?!?

I allways loved Vista.. since I stared using it with the Beta2.
I really love Seven .

But at this time, on the same hardware my old Vista installation (something like 18 month without reinstallation, and a motherboard switch few month ago) is really faster than Seven built 7000 x64.

I have exactly the same feeling that I had when I first tried Vista and go back to XP.


So what's the magical thing which make Seven loved by all against the poor Vista

How many here switch back from Seven to Vista and what your your feeling when you go back to Vista ?

I like 7 far more than Vista due to well, UAC isn't a PITA on 7 and it's more stable for me. I do agree on speed though I tested with several benchmarks and x86 Windows Vista Business kicked the **** out of Windows 7 Built 7057 x64 on almost every benchmark known to man.

have you tryed one of the latest builds in win 7?
on my system it cut the boot down alot. with vista it takes almost 2mins just to boot up.
with win 7 build 7057 it takes about 30 to 40 secs. and over all win 7 seems alot faster then vista.

Me or him? Either way, yes I'm using the x64 Build 7057, it can't touch Vista Business. I do believe it boots faster, but on tests like Super Pi and other proc intensive tests Vista Business was faster by a margin on 5-10%.

Interesting thread. I personally find that Windows 7 is running a little faster than Vista in some areas, and in others about the same. However for me, there are 2 BIG reasons why I prefer Windows 7 to anything else....

1. Better compatibility with my software than Vista.
2. Faster than XP 32bit.

Of course then you have the additional nice touches of Windows 7 that makes it that little bit extra special.

So for me a slight speed difference either way, I really couldn't care less. Just want a stable, more compatible, less bloated OS.

I used Vista since beta2/rc1/rtm. I loved Vista ultimate x64.

Now since using Windows 7 7000 & above, and learning how the program runs and the way it utilizes minimum resources I am very impressed.
The graphics are not so important, its the way this OS runs on my PC that's important.
So many better features, easier ways to do things. (Lists are around on this forum.)

At the moment build 7057 is more stable than Vista Ultimate. Now that's impressive.
I will be getting RC1 and then look forward to the final release.

My Vista Ultimate compared in speed to Windows 7 Super Pi test for the 4m Vista 1.29.879 and 7 was 1.22.019 and for the 16k Vista .690 and 7 .661 with a 8400 processor. Build 7057 Windows 7. I like this version so much not using Vista anymore on this system.

Same thing in my experience, not sure why so many people seem to be complaining about 7057. I've only seen a BSOD twice and both were my fault not the OS's. (I had overclocked my video card too high.)

I think the Windows 7 speedy boot times are smoke and mirrors. Windows loads up and the Start up sound is supposed to signify that the system is ready to go yet 7 has just delayed loading processes to give the impression that the boot time is faster. You still can't really use your system because processes are still being loaded in the background.

Not too much of an issue for me as I rarely shut the system completely off. It's usually in S3 sleep. As for speed issues I really haven't noticed significant noticeable differences between the two and Seven has a few useability features over Vista so I'll stick with it.

I've worked with Vista Premium, Business and Ultimate. I love all three of them. I love Win 7 too, so I will keep it on my main computer and buy the OS when it's retail version comes out.
