As much as I dislike Vista, I have learned to tolerate (barely) all of it's quirks. Before I would upgrade to another "new & improved" version of Vista, I would "upgrade" to XP. Vista on my laptop is functional for the things I need to do and I would rather not muck things up with an upgrade to something untried or unproven. Don't want to trade a set of sort-of-known problems for a whole new set of problems. What about Midori? It's supposed to be all new from the ground up and not have any of the old Windows baggage. I'd like to see/hear more about Midori and when it might be coming out.
I switched to Windows 7 about two weeks ago. It has made major leaps from Vista and is a world class operating system. I have seen great system gains in performance and usability overall. I urge everyone to switch to Windows 7.
YUP! I already am using windows 7. I must admit, in the very beginning, I was really used to XP. I don't like change much...usually keep things pretty consistent. Got pretty frustrated when I didnít know where things were located. But having used Windows 7 for about 6 months now, I really love it. Took me some time to get used to where things were, but itís great. I recommend it highly. Also, allegedly itís much faster than XP and Vista. The only problem I have is my startup is slow. I have not troubleshot it at ALL. All I can say is that itís probably NOT caused by Windows 7, but most likely something to do with my hardware. It hasnít posed a big enough problem to me to be concerned with it though, so I just turn on my comp, walk away for a min or two and come back. Again, probably just a hardware issue. EVERYTHING about Windows 7 is cool. Highly recommended!
