Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3
 
 

Well for me when I boot inot my Xp drive it feels extremely antiquated, personlay I only do it to use a couple of programs and to keep it up to date. So I'm definetly sold on Seven. Fabe

i can tell you just from this site alone most people using 7 love it. there are a few who bash it usually in favor of xp often the same people are running dated software and hardware. idk why some people seem to think a computer they bought 5-10 years ago should run 7 well and all of their legacy software should run without a problem but until they can accept the reality and change they won't be happy and it's not because of a problem with 7.

7 and Server 2008 R2 (based on 7) are the best.

Hi all
Markets mature
I'd be SURPRISED with that many copies of W7 sold (or obtained elsewhere) and installed on every possible imaginable piece of hardware that there WEREN'T SOME gripes.

I think the majority are more than satisfied -- I know I am.

For some apps I still need an XP system -- I run these on a W2K3 server VIRTUAL MACHINE but even here I've fiddled around with it to make it look and behave as much as possible like W7.

(W2008 server is also good but unfortunately some of my older apps DO need an "XP" type system still).

Anyway here's my "W7-ified" W2K3 server

Cheers
jimbo

I would bet the vast majority of windows 7 haters are people who can't afford to buy a computer that can run windows 7, let alone buy a copy of windows 7 itself.

I would agree on that. I built my PC with the intention of going 7 64bit. As these OS's get more sophisticated I think upgrading can become an issue, IMHO. I grew to like XP after some problems but 7 has been pretty nice..........so far.

Good point people are making about the dated hardware. My computer was built to handle Vista Ultimatex64, so 7 Ultimatex64 seems to work quite well.

The funny thing is upgrading a 5-6 year old system to handle windows 7 is less expensive than windows 7 is.

It's all about the statistics, I wish I could see a multi-thousand person SRS survey of Windows 7 users, with their experience rated between 1 and 10, maybe I could do that here, but then that would be a limited population, with no indicative on the world wide issues. Stupid statistics.

Windows 7 is not perfect, admit and live with it... Some might not have problems, some are, those who don't can't bash those who got problems with "your hardware sucks, you suck", etc... It's just an OS...
I personally feel that Windows 7 is much better replacement than Vista (I tried it once [37 days, with rearm command], didn't like it), but it's NOT MUCH better than XP, it's just slightly better. It does have the ability to extract more performance of my machine than XP, but that' just it, nothing more, nothing less. The system responds more or less "steadier" than XP, in XP when I got ~140 processes, it'll start to chug... 7 OTOH behave more or less what it's normally responds, not slower, not faster...
