Windows 7: Why are you testing Win 7?

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit SP1
Why are you testing Win 7?

Is it because you want to see how fast this new OS is?
Office and business applications?
Just curious as to what's to come?

Since this *will* be a new Windows OS, do you have anything to add for your reasons?

As for me, I'm testing it to see how much malware we will see in the coming months once it's an official OS.

It didn't take long for us to see that users could infect their Vista OS's by not following advice from the experts.

The main reason being that its gonna be our new OS for future use, and its a good one for a change XP was brilliant, but its now past its lifetime, Vista was sh!t, and never had a lifetime lol

Windows 7 - 7000

Because I was bored of XP... after using MAC OSX, kubuntu, and opensuse, I felt like I wasn't going back to the horrible interface of XP... and Vista wasn't an option. So, I decided with 7 after I realized that macosx and other linux distros were really stupid to use on a everyday computer. I mean, you can't even have a decent chat on MSN, or play any great game around. Even office for mac sucked, and open office sucked more.

Slackware / Windows 7 x64 7100

Because I am a repair shop manager and want to get a head start on the inner workings of 7 before we start getting some in the shop.

Well, I'm not actually testing Windows 7, I just got it since it's free and Vista was pretty bad. Plus, new things are always nice to try out, especially when I hear good stuff about it from many sources.

Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

Like SK, it was a new toy. Vista runs great for me, but 7 runs better and makes some things I do easier. This will be the first OS I buy rather than get pre-installed on a new comp. Also wanted to try x64 but didn't want to buy a x64 Vista.

Windows 10 Pro x64 1909 - 18363.657 XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

HI All,

I initially loaded Windows 7 so that I could get used to it to better support it when it's released. I use it as my OS of choice because it's good - It just works

I'm not "testing" Win7, I'm using it! I'll never install any Vista again, because Win7 is better IMHO. It already runs stable, fast and reliable. All the software I need works, all devices I use are supported (or the Vista drivers work). So I'm using it as my production system and I'll never look back. I even use it on my HTPC now and it works perfectly!
