Windows 7 – Accept or Decline?


I’ve had Windows 7 running on a test machine here at work for a little while and I have to admit I like it. The question is do I switch to it at home or wait a little longer?

Hmm… I guess I had better start backing up files; iTunes purchases, photos and saved games.

  1. I’ve been running 64bit 7 and 32bit 7 in a dual boot for a little over two months.

    Two thumbs up.

    Due to graphics driver issues (one PCI-E card, one much lower tier PCI card) I can’t run the 64 bit. But even still, I love it.

  2. I guess I’ll do that on the weekend then. I am a little worried about the older machine having a similar issue, Tim but I guess I could just installed the 32-bit version for that.

  3. Vista has been sort of trouble free but I LOATHE it. It’s what Apple would have put out of Jobs had been on even more acid than he was, mixed with the typical Microborg dose of “I know what you want better than you do.”

    It *tries* so hard to be helpful, and all it manages is to make me snarl and snap. Stupid Vista.

    Only thing that’s holding me back is that I don’t trust 7 any more than I trusted Vista to begin with. I don’t want to be farking about with drivers and stuff every 3 days — oh wait, I just did that with Vista… /groan

  4. I’ve had a few problems with Vista, but I’ve been using the 32-bit version so no real driver issues. A lot of it has to do with the permissions which have been a mixed blessing. It is a nuisance for me, but on the other hand I’ve yet to have issues caused by other users of my computers.

    People have best described Vista:Windows 7 as a Windows ME:Windows XP. I dont’t really see that though… Vista wasn’t nearly as bad as ME.

  5. I’ll be switching to Win7 as soon as it’s out. I’m not using the RC or anything, strictly word of mouth. But I’ve borked my XP system to the point I’m lucky if it decides to boot up, so I’m in the process of picking out a new CPU, motherboard and RAM to go along with Win7.
