Windows 7: Win 7 slower than Vista? :S

Some sources agree that 7 is slower... go see yourself

Windows 7 Called Slower than Vista - PCWorld Business Center

for my personal experience my pc isn't the fastest i know ... but i was playin battlefield in high detail overall with vista, and with no good reason now with 7 i need to run it low on detail... for sure if i've had a core i7 i wouln't be experiencing this problem, but it is not everyone that got a gaming beast!

It is also normal that a system that has always more and more services and hidden processes running in the background will be slower.

Some poeples will say it is faster probably because of a good compatibility with all devices..
Other like me will feel that the poor vista was probably better for now.....i really like 7
but right now with all the same programs installed than before on vista... it take like 3 minutes to boot compare to 1:45 seconds with vista.

Like to much often new technologies and softwares need to be optimized by users and developers...... it mean wait for some major update

My Win7 loads faster than my XP. the 7 doesn't take 1:34min to load either as in that article.

I'm loading 68 apps on start up according to task manager in less than a minute.
I can run AVP benchmark wide open with no hangs or glitches and the graphics card is not OC'ed.
Check my specs.

I must have a good copy.
