    Re: Vista premium vs Windows 7

    I have tried the vista premium last month and yet I still go back with windows XP because I still notice the poor stability of Vista premiuim.Few weeks ago I try Windows 7 and it seems good and good in performance especially in its stability. Ican say that it is a combination of XP and Vista wherein the interface is derived from Vista and the performance is derived from XP. I love Windows 7

    I did not expect much from W7, but was pleasantly proven wrong... upgraded all my machines...

    the difference between Vista and Windows 7, is that 7 works!

    No crashing, no long long lagging periods! But have to be honest and say that can't wait to see what Google has up it sleeves.

    We went to 7 with the following Issues. Printers. Even printers that worked with 2008 rc2 had issues on 7. However, huge improvement over Vista. If the PC can run XP it can run 7.

    My main concern is what about all my programs running just fine under winxp?

    example what will happen with programs like office for wxp or photoshop for wxp or dreamweaver for wxp?

    what will happen with w7 ???

    Many major software vendors, and Microsoft in particular, are pretty good at ensuring "backward compatibility" with their programs and operating systems. I have yet to see a single version of Windows that didn't work with programs originally designed to work with an earlier Windows version.

    Well, for what little it's worth, since I haven't tried it myself...

    I have a couple of friends that were on the Win7 beta testing, and several that are running it now, and I have yet to hear anything negative.

    Of course, after Vista, anything would look good!

    Windows 7 is much more focused with the goal of being more compatible with hardware and it applications. Much more features is included on windows 7 such as direct access, advances in touch and handwriting recognition. I am planning now to upgrade my vista to windows 7.

    Windows 7 are more stable, faster and is the best windows version ever made
    I don't think Windows 7 is the best OS ever made.
    Personally, I do like Win XP SP2 and to me it's the best OS.
    Win 7 may have better features than Vista but XP is the best.

    We avoided VISTA like the plaque. Windows 7 on new dual or quad core machines is a good upgrade and we needed to upgrade. That said every upgraded machine has a MS Virtual XP machine running. We didn't use the Microsoft XP image. We created a Virtual machine and installed a full blown version of XP from the installation CD's that came with the PC's we were putting out to pasture. Print drivers have been a pain, for some of our high end printers.
