To me it is, but only in certain respects. I'll certainly opt for 7 when it's final.

Now to see how many of the hacks I had before I can get to work on this one.

The reason Win7 has been 'born' so soon is because of MS's second disaster, that is Vista (after WinME) lol. Win7 may have come along eventually yes, but a lot later had that abomination, that was Vista, succeeded.

We can skip these two mishaps now and look at the proper roadmap:

Win98 > WinXP > Win7

The other 2 can sit on that top shelf in the dust, forgotten forever, but occasionally talked about for a laugh.

I still think vista is a great Operating System,I have been using it for the last 2 days constantly,and I was very impressed with it because, I had spent the last few months using Seven, and thinking ,OH my god, how did I ever live without Seven, well I was wrong, Vista is still a good OP ,and we have to remember ,Seven wouldn't be here today without Vista,so I dont think we should put it up against the wall in front of the firing squad ,just yet, so I think Ex Brit has a point when he says what he says.

So far Win 7 has given me a lot more grief than Vista has ever done and I've had Vista right from the beta versions.

I admit 7 is smoother running in many respects but it really looks and feels like a watered down Vista to me, so far anyway. I hope more features are added in time.

Upgrade = rarely ever a good idea.
He did a fresh install...


ALso, upgrading works well with 7. I've done it about six or so times between various builds and had no problems what so ever. The same goes for Vista > 7.

Really? Well perhaps I misread his first post, but even his response to my other comment sounded as though he had used the upgrade option.
