Default Will You Upgrade to Windows 7? - 10-29-2008, 10:04 PM

TechEBlog New Microsoft Windows



Now that you've seen the screenshots and video, are you going to upgrade to Windows 7? It's supposed to be released early next year.

Not for probably a year after so they can get bugs fixed, and so I can see how the reviews stack up. But right now i'm happy with XP.

I am not going to upgrade yet i will hold o to my trustable xp. Ive used Windows Vista and it is very impresive, but I would just rather keep my XP. So, Windows 7, see you in about 3 years.

I wont be upgrading to Win7 until and/or unless it is proven to be better than XP in terms of useability, hardware compatability, and resource requirements.

In other words: If I cant fully implement it on mid-grade consumer hardware without driver issues, byzantine versioning/pricing, or overzealous security nags, then M$ wont be getting any of my hard-earned cash. Ill just finally go Linux.

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: I remember when Windows XP first came out, much like Windows ME, it had alot of issues...mainly with software compatability. A couple years down the line nobody seemed to really remember any of that. That's is what I think Windows 7 will be like. People will be hesitant at first (largely due to the failure of Vista), but slowly convert or buy new computers with Windows 7 preinstalled. I would like to bypass Vista and hopefully find something nice with Windows 7. I hear it is supposed to be a much lighter OS (not needing as much resources as Vista at least). But also allows the benefit of 64-bit computing and Direct X 10+. And possibly the new faster file system that they were supposed to incorporate into Vista.
