    I have Windows 7 on a netbook. It fucking sucks for anything other than email and basic web.

    But that's probably because it's a netbook. Other than that, I have no experience with Windows 7.

    I love Windows 7 because everything just works all the damn time. I'm experienced enough with computers that I can fiddle with the backend if something isn't doing what I like, but since I upgraded to 7 in November [after xp] I've been insanely impressed and happy. I can't stress it enough. Everything just w o r k s.

    Windows 7 is awesome. MS definitely took the time to make things right. Vista could have been good, but I think they rushed that out to market too quickly. I think a lot of corporate networks will finally upgrade from XP to Windows 7.

    Agree!! I remember with XP and even vista sometimes I had to always go and change stuff manually or bother with settings and stuff..but now, everything is taken care of automatically. I barely even go to the control panel. It's so smoooooth!

    I've been using Mac OS for years too and let me tell you things aren't as perfect as hardcore iTards would like people to believe. If given a choice, I'd rather use Vista for the rest of my life as opposed to OS X.

    That's because Windows is the "OS for Dummies" icon_biggrin.gif

    Linux is like Mac OS... it just works right. Windows is a fucking headache to those of us who know how to use a computer.

    Because it does the same thing the OS on my old Mac did. And it does it for less money.

    Lol Linux isn't quite there as far as 'it just works.' It's close but not there yet. Same for Android on the mobile front.

    Really, if you want an "OS for Dummies" I'd point anyone to Mac because it's so simple a drunk retarded three year old could use it...so long as they don't want to run anything but 10* preselected and approved programs. That's not a good thing in my eyes. I like options. I hate when my choices are taken away. With a Mac you're limited in software. You're severely limited in upgrades and you're limited on where you get it repaired.

    I've always been of the mind...a computer is only as smart as it's user. I think Mr Jobs is aware that the people likely to flock to K.I.S.S. systems are usually technophobic airheads anyway. icon_razz.gif

    Windows 7 is not without it's faults. I don't like the taskbar - I like the dock in OSX and the fanning icons as opposed to static text box. But hey, I like it pretty

    }-)

    Oh, and by the way - if all you're able to load on your device is '10 preselected programs' - you need to look a bit deeper into the internet, go find the ra1n

    Though I WILL say that I do like Windows 7. It's a good OS, but I prefer OS X. It's versatile and actually the fastest Windows install I've EVER completed. Like, EVER.

    It's not too heavy like EVERY upgrade to Windows always seems to be - new WIndows version? Uh-oh, time to buy a new computer LOL

    So tits out for Microsoft - you put out a passable product. After a lot of years and asstard antics. Good job

    *clap*clap*

    hahaha, }-P

    Get off our forum, Mr. Gates. No one is buying that you're a 23 year old gay boy in Florida.

    Without the fear that your software might not be supported icon_razz.gif

    Windows 7 is AMAZING. Yes the Mac system is more 'stable' than previous versions of windows, but it is not without faults. Windows was beginning to fail me so miserably i was making the move to Linux when 7 came out. Now, i'm in heaven. I've used Mac and Windows for YEARS and 7 is by far my favorite.

    Anyway, without going into why i prefer which,

    I like windows7 because it doesn't just WORK, it WORKS. Absolutely NO cpu-overuses, networks set THEMSELVES up, the new taskbar is rockin-awesome, the mousepad has more than one button (okay so that's another story...) and it runs 'sleep mode' just as smoothly as a mac (problems with previous versions of windows and till now mac has been FAR superior here)

    PCs are still far cheaper and easier to buy, repair, manage, and upgrade and now the OS is as stable as any.

    Mac and Microsoft have made their HORRIBLE decisions in the past, but they've also put things out that kick-ass. Right now, Windows7 just put a whole foot up mac's ass - I can't wait to see the new big thing mac does to counter it icon_razz.gif

    As someone who uses Mac OS (Snow Leopard) at home and Windows 7 at work, I can say this:

    - Windows 7 is far more speedy than Mac OS.
    - Windows 7 actually looks better than Mac OS.
    - Windows 7's interface is actually cleaner and more useful than Mac OS's.
    - When I use my MacBook I actually find myself longing for Windows 7 and the Windows only software that I have there.
    - Oh, and there's actually software for Windows.

    Now, just on the Windows side I can say this one thing about Windows 7:

    - Windows 7: Vista done right.

    And yeah, Vista SP1 fixed many a thing, but still, Windows 7 was the point where they got it just right.

    and you will, because you have the choice, so hows about you not try to be insulting to those who like something different to you..

    With Windows 7 I can do almost everything I actually want to do.

    With Mac OSX I can do everything that Apple thinks I should be able to do.

    I use OSX at work and Windows at home. I always fuck up the keyboard shortcuts on OSX. Like if I want the cursor to jump to the next word, I'll instinctively hit Ctrl + right-arrow. Of course, this activates Spaces and changes to my other desktop. And then I lose my train of thought, and start reading Reddit or something. icon_lol.gif
