Is it just my experience? or is Win7 actually slower?

It's just you.I highly doubt there is anyone with the same opinion.

Hi bigmama,

It depends - partly on your hardware- you may be comparing x86 to x64 - you may have Vista installed on the first partition - you may have turned UAC off.

The only way to compare is to use the same bit versions of both, and run both without UAC.

Vista boots 20% faster on my machine than any of the 7 builds so far.

What?! I it is so ,you're the first ever! And yes ,I'll ask it too - did you made upgrade or clean install? Someone mentioned boot time : on mine primary machine Vista needed almost minute - 54 sec ,while Seven boots in 37. I think it's just your experience!! And ,if you tested 64bit version of Seven it is slower then 32bit but not so slower!!
