Windows 7: Windows 7 'Incredibly Stable,' Intel Expert Says

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Windows 7 'Incredibly Stable,' Intel Expert Says

The trial version of the next Windows operating system has won a key endorsement from a software expert at chipmaker Intel (NSDQ: INTC), a company that, despite being one of Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT)'s closest partners, was so leery of Vista that at one point it banned the widely maligned OS from its corporate workstations.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1

I must agree with how Incredibly Stable windows 7 is.... but unfortunately when i speak with may friends and family.... they are so skeptical about it since trying vista.... i cant help but feel that its gonna take a lot of convincing people to upgrade to 7

I hope M$ have a really good marketing plan to win back all the people that have been scared away from windows since vista

Win7 Ultimate x64 on Desktop / Win7 Ultimate x86 on laptop / Win7 x86 Starter on Netbook

Yes I agree, very stable for a beta. I am running Vista ultimate also on dual boot and no problems so far. Obviously drivers will be sorted out at the final release.

XP/Vista/Windows 7 builld 7000

i agree with the previous posters, remarkably stable to date. we are running two dedicated desktops, and two laptops configured to dual boot vista (toshiba) without issues. running vista lone, the laptops were essentially mobile doorstops and were due to be blown away and fitted with windows xp just to get some work out of them. very few of our commercial clients would go anywhere near vista, but windows 7 will sell itself if they just tweak it out and keep the junk off it come retail release.

i think IT professionals are already for the most part onboard with this one, so that puts the ball in Microsoft's court, it is literally at this point I think, their game to lose. I don't see microsoft doing that this time having learned their lesson with vista, and keeping an eye on a still small but increasing market share from apple. before this, more and more clients seriously looked at apple as an alternative. i think the big loser here will be linux because as alternatives go, they are driven by dissatisfaction by the public with the primary product.

windows 7 should also extend the usable life of current hardware already in place at small commercial enterprise so i see deployement of windows 7 as far as we are concerned as a no brainer in the not so distant future.

Windows 7 build 7000 x86

On a consumer level I can say that I already love Windows 7, and I have only been using it for 3 days so far. Many of the things they've done is brilliant and makes you wonder why it took so long to come up with something this intuitive. The search function is brilliant, I've only had one full crash yet, and I haven't exactly been careful, at most times it just freezes for a bit, and settles it's differences with whatever app I am running... Unlike Vista did, almost up until SP1.

I think, in a slightly exaggerated manner, Seven is as much launch ready as Vista was shortly before SP1, perhaps more.

Lol - You're forgetting a lot of W7 was already in Vista - it was just too aggressive in memory use for the average user.

So, that, in fact, supports your credo - why *did* it take so long? The answer is in the fact that, though being based upon the NT kernel of yesteryear, it is nearly a completely re-written kernel - and thus the rest of the OS had to be re-written a lot as well in order to accommodate the new kernel.

That is a *lot* of rewriting - and that does not include any *new* code needed for new features....

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,
If that is the case....

If that is the case then why are there endless pages about Windows 7 crashing? It's far from being stable in my opinion. I've had crashes moving files throught the network or just attempting to download something, so have many many others.

I think the guy from Intel needs to have his Windows 7 up and running for a week non stop before he decides if it's truely stable or not. It's no where near as stable for me as Vista is.

I have no doubt that Microsoft will work out these problems though.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I've had seven up and running for a month and have had no crashes of seven itself.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Lucky you, wish I could say the same. The antivirus crashes alone account for most of them but I never installed any of those. Many complaints about crashing from moving files around also. Hopefully it all gets fixed soon with updates.

Windows 7 7100 build

I would say it is very stable and does not crash.

I have not had a full system lock up since I had XP lol. Vista or 7 never gave me problems!

The only issues I had with 7 was it would not install anything. Find that info in another post, but since it's fixed now I have nothing to complain about :) :) :)
