Windows 7

Postby acsguitar » Thu May 14, 2009 9:52 pm

I think this is the correct place to post this.

Anyways anyone beta testing/ RC Testing Windows 7

I think its pretty awesome! I'm maining it as my current OS. I think MS has a big score with Windows 7.

I'll be using it a alot (have been using it alot) so if you have questions or whatever you can ask me.

also down with Macs

I had it on my computer for awhile but since it was beta, a lot of my programs didn't work with it. I'm thinking I'm just going to stick with XP even though I thought 7 was a very good OS.

I read win7 will be able to run older programs as if it was on XP. They are almost finished with the downloadable beta version of it I believe.

imo windows 7 should be free for all owners of vista. they shouldn't be charging for a new OS not long after vista's disappointment.

They should, but obviously they won't.

Windows 7 will definitely be compatible with everything sooner or later. I just like XP too much to be an early adopter, but once it becomes the standard I'll probably switch. I wouldn't have any doubts about buying a new computer that comes with Windows 7 pre-installed though. It is a really good OS even it's beta stages.

In layman's terms, what makes it better than XP or Vista?

Faster starting up and shutting down. Easy to install drivers (Everything worked without installing a darn thing myself) I've put it on 4 or 5 machines and Windows 7 just worked without touching it.

Less annoying security then Vista. Really slick. New BIG taskbar. Hoevering over an icon on the task bar brings up a preview window.

Easy to find things by typing in the name of whatever on a serach bar. Cool gadgets.

Tell you what pisses me off about W7...

I had to get a new computer last week. The 6-year old Mac was getting too risky to keep running. The new computer came with Vista. There's no way in the world I'm going to pay to switch, so I'm going to be stuck with this terrible OS simply because my computer couldn't make it another 6 months.

:~( :~( :~( :~( :~(

And because I'm cheap. O:-)
