This is going to be a thread about Windows 7. talk about why you want to, or do not want to upgrade to Windows 7.

Also, post helpful tips and tricks about windows 7 that will help people deside if they want to upgrade to windows 7.

for example, here is a handy trick with itunes, if it is running and playing a song, when you hover over it in the task bar and the window pops up it will tell you the name of the song band name, and album. as well as at the bottom of the little window there will be pause play and skip buttons.



so fell free to post anything that you like about Windows 7, or post complaints about it.


but please, PLLLLLLEASE, no "windows sucks, mac rules" comments, feel free to say that you like mac better then it, but try to back up why you feel that way.

Is it worth switching from Vista to 7?
Not gonna lie, I waited until this summer to get Vista. The only reason I even had it was because it was given to me.

We have a computer thread, so this isn't really needed.



i felt that the computer thread (i have read almost all of it) is more for computers, and i wanted to make this as a more specific thread, about win 7 itself. because in the computer thread people would say something and then the topic would get changed, it was just to vague.

Do you all like pancakes?


I do. Especially when I use a Windows Vista installer disc as my pancake holder then to go skeet shooting with.
I kid, I kid.

Not true.

Windows 7 IS Vista but with a shiny front.
MS has made people buy 2 OS in 2 years.

I'd say it is. It starts up, shuts down, wakes up ect. a lot faster. A lot less of the security pop ups. Looks better. My laptop is getting better battery life. It takes up less ram and less of the processor. Runs smother. I only started using Vista this summer too when I got my laptop and switched to 7 two months ago.

Even if Windows 7 ends up being amazing, I've gotten used to my mac now. <3
I've had it for almost two years and it's been extremely faithful.
But I have nothing against Windows.

holy hell!!! it's a mac user who isn't an opinionated douche of a fanboy
That's respectable though, I really don't think one os is inherently better than the other. I'm comfortable switching between using windows and mac but I just prefer windows.

There's honestly not that big a difference. Vista has been patched to have DirectX11 support just like Windows 7, which was probably the number 1 motivator for most gamers to switch. If you care about such things, Win7 run cleaner than Vista. A lot less wasted system resources.

I have noticed that it's a good deal faster than Vista. I switched to Win7 about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Boot is fast, startup is fast. No stupid sitting around after logging in for all your "load on start-up" programs to get going as long as you keep it relatively clean. I r a nerd and I play WoW--back on Vista alt-tabb'ing during WoW was a nightmare. Took like 5 seconds to get to the desktop and 10+ to reopen the game. It's been pretty much instant on Win7. The UI is nice, too.

I've been using it for a month or two and so far have had no problems. I really don't see how Windows Vista could be better then Windows 7 when Windows 7 is meant to be an improvement over Vista.

exactly WHO said 7 is an improvement over Vista? the person you bought it from?
Look at the benchmarks.
It's not better on a whole.

i would say it is, because 7 has alot of things about it that just make it easier to use, and faster to do things. and vista does just have random freak outs some times, and i had been beta testing 7 since march, and i would say that from mid may and up the beta was better then vista.

I got my windows 7 for 30 dollars. Hell yeah I upgraded.

Also I bought vista for 0$. Thats right, Microsoft gave me vista business for free.

Two os's in two years, total cost: 30 dollars.

Now if you knew where to look, you would be crazy not to upgrade.
Any spelling or grammatical errors written above are because of my inferior brain to yours. Good job, you won life.

It might load a bit quicker but the performance doesn't really improve in any aspect.
