Windows 7: What killed Vista will make Windows 7 fly

Windows 7 Ultimate Beta 32bit, Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit, Ubuntu 8.04 32bit
 
 

As a lot of people are saying, they won't turn back once they get 7, but with Vista, a lot of people turned back, so that gives you an idea of how good it is.

For me, I never gave up hope in Vista, but that hope will definitely be broken as soon as Microsoft releases the finished 7.

Windows 7 Build 7000 x86
 
 

I used vista for a while, compatibility wasn't the problem at all...
It was slow, It was hard to do some things. With the same hardware since i tried vista, I use now the beta of windows 7 and it's faster then XP. At the beginning I thought vista was good, I didn't agree with other people that say it was bad. But after a few days of use the system was slow, crashing and everything bad. So I realize that was true what people say. I unistalled vista and installed XP, the good old and fast XP.
So, yes, Vista is bad, but microsoft corrected everything bad in vista and we have Windows Seven. If continues like this bye bye Linux.

i think it depends on your PC specifications. Some people have computers that can't even run two parallel applications and wanted to install and use vista.
back in XP days yes you can run XP on any PC with low specifications
but vista...vista just want a powerful PC
for me it was just the fastest system i have ever used
So i think it's just a matter of time, people got to know that they should have a powerful PC to just run windows just like they know that they need a powerful PC for gaming.

that's the problem, vista need to much. With my comouter I couldn't run vista well, with Windows 7 (which minimal requirements are a little higher) it's running faster than XP.

but don't forget that this's a beta edition
the final release will has much requirements, at least that what i believe
windows 7 is just a brother to vista but more easy to use and with some corrections that were found in vista and requirements were not one of these correction i think

For being a BETA version it should be instable, but it's not.
I used Windows Vista BETA and final and both of them were slow. And I had the same configuration as today, my 1,25gb of memory.

Vista 64 Ultimate -Beta 7 (Own Partition)
 
 

Vista is a great OS. And its early demise was from people who couldn't understand why there precious museum relics that boasted celery chips and low end CPU's and hardware couldn't handle it.

They just couldn't deal with the fact that there rigs basically belonged in a museum and that printer that didn't work cause its basically an over glorified boat anchor.....

Yes it was sad to see how Vista was bashed from people like this......

Cant wait to see what kind of bitching is going to go on now with windows 7.

Vista R.I.P

And what about the many people with the (apparently) unlimited budgets for building gaming rigs, who also complained that it was utter s**t?

But indeed,

Vista, R.I.P. You came to life too early, and you leave us none too soon.

XP/Vista/Windows 7 builld 7000
 
 

remember for an op system to have legs for the long haul business, not the home user has to go there. that's where the money is, not only for the licensing but what microsoft loves to call, the total cost of ownership. up until the not to distant past, i was still booked to do rollouts for windows xp in enterprise situations, and when vista came along.....business, especially small business stuck with what they had rather than put a bullet into their heads. vista rollouts numbered probably less than maybe 5 percent of my business. putting vista on laptops was the death sentence for the operating system. if more people want a mobile solution, now apparently they do, then it needs to run on the platform. i have one desktop unit in my house that runs a very sweet potentially only one in the world, windows 95 that works a charm. and every bit as fast as vista and that on a pentium 133.

I have built 2 gaming rigs and with both of them I made sure everything was going to be Vista friendly and I have had 0 problems with Vista and all my games fly, I have decent startup and shutdown speeds and never get any BSOD's unless I have done something stupid.

The Key to having a successful OS is to know what your buying and check out the reviews, knowledge is everything!
