    Windows 7

    Well through my school I got windows 7 earlier than the general public and I can say I am impressed. Vista was horriable but windows 7 really makes up for it. You woudn't know the difference looking at it, it looks just like visita with some extra features. It runs really nice though, without all that annoying lock ups and wait times. Also you can turn off the annoying pop up that is used for security reasons. You could do this with vista as well but you had to search for it and the average user couldn't find it.

    All in all def. worth an upgrade.

      Does it solve the driver problem for older equipment? I'm still holding on to legacy equipment to see if Windows 7 comes up with some drivers.

        I know you simply have to search for uac, but people like my mom had no idea how to turn it off if I wasn't there to show her.

        My computer is pretty new so i'm not sure about the driver issues, so far i had no driver issues but then again i'm running 32 bit not 64 bit.

          My daughter really likes it. She has had to search for some drivers online. But once she found them everything is working very well.

            So it's not just me, eh? The pile 'o laptop with Vista is getting retired, I think the new thing has a free upgrade to 7. I'm keeping the big machine on XP though

              I have vista on my laptop and did not think it was that bad. I also have 7 rc dual booted, but don't use it that much. When 7 is released, I will probably get it though.

              Where is the list of schools that got it?

                  can you run Vista as a 32-bit OS?

                    If you have Vista 32 bit, then the answer is "Yes." For about the past year or more the default version of Vista has been 64 bit. The only advantage to Vista 64 bit or Windows 7 64 bit is that you will be able to access more than 4 GB of RAM.

                      I'm excited too! I'm waiting order my new 'dream' computer till then. I could get a free upgrade from vista, but it sounds like a pain to upgrade. I'm gonna wait!

                      Thanks for the good reviews!!

                        Just so I confuse you more or clarify ... I run 95% of what I do on a MAC.

                        Will be keeping XP Pro on my back up computer at home. Will leave Linux on the other machine I use for who knows what ....

                        My son wants it for his MACBook Pro and wants to run it with Fusion because he needs a number of programs for university that are only available in PC format.

                        Whew ... will stop now because I am confused.

                        P.S. Everyone I talk to says Windows 7 is REALLY good to use!
