Hi.
Well i'm thinking of upgrading from Vista to Windows 7.

Don't get me wrong,i love Vista. Really i don't quite understand why its being bashed so much. Sure it fails or freeze's once in awhile.
I think MS did a wonderful job from XP to Vista. It looks and feels different.
I enjoy Vista in other words :)

However...Windows 7 has got a hell of alot of good reviews.
Its supposed to use less RAM and be much quicker at opening files and folders.
It has cool new features aswell that i liked :)

I did the Windows 7 upgrade test to see if my laptop can run it and it came through and i'm able to upgrade to WIndows 7 Ultimate.

Question is:Do you think i should upgrade? let me know your opinion and how better 7 is than Vista.

Cheers :)

i would say yes, i work as a computer technician, Windows 7 is much more reliable than Vista, just be sure you can find W7 drives for all your devices before upgrading.

I'd say screw Windows and go for Linux (hey, it's free), but if you must, than yes. Windows 7 sorta works, which is better than nothing.

That's why you're still a kid.

You can dual-boot it 'ya know. :) Keeping your Windows install intact.

Oh, dur, what am I thinking? You can use what's called a live CD to check it out for yourself before installing.

Well, that's probably good enough (our Kubuntu/Vista dualboot only runs on 40 gigs) unless you're one to download a lot of videos :). If that's the case, a USB drive might be needed. Again, you should at least try something like Mint from a live CD, to see if you like it.

I'll definitly check into Linux and see how its OS is ^^
