Benchtesting is completely reliant on the code the application uses to generate then calculate the results...I dont think one benchtest result from one application is really useful for obtaining a real result or even an approximate result
still remember the zdnet vs infoworld
and on benchmark is better...

The main reason for this report is Vista isn't that bad. Vista is fine. Windows 7 is a bit faster especially with opening system apps. It does not surprise me that Vista and Seven aren't much different on these tests. It's because Vista is a good OS too!

Every program which I find Vista has problems with, Win 7 functions 100% flawlessly.
Speed can be seen with the naked eye as being much faster....
Both HD's are rated the same, both systems have the same programs loaded, (except the email).
cold start Vista - 2m04s
cold start Win7 - 1m55s
shutdown Vista - 20s
shutdown Win7 - 13s
Each to their own on preference.
3drives 3 OSs later I now see the 64bit RC as the default OS followed the 32bit RC and finally the 32bit Vista Home Premium. Guess which one sees everything running on it?

I'll make that a little easier and say leave out the 32bit RC for the moment!

Windows 7 -x6

windows vista had a rough start and got a bad name. its still doesnt have quite all the bugs worked out, but it has certainly come a long way from where it originally got its bad rep from. problem was it was horrible when it came out as well as the compatibility issues with EVERYTHING, i dont see all that much of a difference between current vista, and win7, i do prefer 7, little things make it much nicer. I pretty much look at windows 7 as the next release of vista....

Seven feels way more refined. The search feature is definitely faster and more accurate than Vista's.

Windows 7 7100 build

I have been using 7 for a while now and I think it is faster?

I don't believe this review that much.

Vista was fine, but 7 just seems better!

Up until the RCs anything seen has been a large skeleton of the actual Windows to be seen once out. The beta builds were not fully integrated will all services running and all features enabled which will see the normal increase in memory used.

The kernel itself however is what now realizes the much needed refinement over what Vista saw there while Vista is generally far more secure then any previous version you compare it against. XP is full of security holes at this point and sadly took a third SP to see all the bugs there worked out! 1,000+ fixes in SP3!

Windows 7 x64

like many others said:
the numbers could show that there's not that much difference in speed, but the feel tells me that se7en is a lot snappier and more responsive. and I surely love the booting up boost, especially with sidebar.

My 2 year old Vaio SZ laptop became fairly sluggish with Vista so I have recently tried Windows 7 - and I'm just not finding it much faster! Also due to no Sony driver support it also freezes at times. I think though I have identified the bottleneck, the HDD. The 5200Rpm Toshiba drive hits...
