when my roomies computer (from HP running Vista) hd crashed
we installed a new 1TB hd and were left with the choice of
reinstalling Vista, an old copy of XP SP3 or making the plunge into Windows 7
From the day he had gotten the system, he begged me to load XP and dump Vista in the trash
I was skeptical to do so, new machine, HP warrantees, etc, etc, etc...
but not nearly as skeptical as getting Windows 7
Vista had been such a disappointment, I almost became ill just thinking about it
After much inner turmoil, I bit my lip and took the plunge... I purchased Windows 7 Professional
I am so impressed, I can't believe the difference over Vista, or XP for that matter
this is truly worth the upgrade, MicroSoft nailed this one right on the head
I won't get into all of the details now, there are too many
but let me say, this improves every aspect of Windows,
its like XP and Vista rolled into one with more power under the hood and even more just waiting to be released..
Pros: It does everything, faster, better and sleeker <--'is that a word'
Cons: You need lots of that RAM stuff and fairly healthy system to run it
........ you have to dig to learn it's inner secrets, but won't be disappointed
Note: if you get it and get confused with the interface,
trust me, you can set it up to act and look just like Vista or XP or your own unique interface... Its just not obvious how to do it
