world of difference man. vista is hilariously retarded in it's uselessness. I'd definitely put 7 on par with mac osx (keep in mind i haven't moved on to snow leopard, so it still might not be as good) its a really good system. they fixed everything that was so badly wrong with vista.

Vista, its a piece of shit. I was a stuck with it with my new laptop I bought recently

I get a free upgrade to 7 within the next 6 months so I reckon ill wait until they release a service pack or something.

XP, nice and simple, apart from the fact that all my icons have, for some reason, reverted back to Windows 98 default and I am unable to change them back. (Only happened the other day.)

Vista.

Would like to upgrade to 7 soon. If I can't, I'd like to try Ubuntu.

I don't really have any problems with Vista. The only thing that bugs me is shit popping up whenever I plug in my phone/iPod/flash drive.

If you try Ubuntu, give 9.10 a try. I usually wait a while when a new version comes out so they can fix bugs and stuff, but no need with 9.10. It's been a dream since I upgraded to it.

i'd still wait. i've got an Asus desktop in my family room running 7 right now, and it's awesome so far, but i can't help but feel that eventually something is going to go wrong. it feels too correct. it feels like a mac or a linux os, which im not used to. its probably just my own vista-induced paranoia though

I thought the same thing but I use Winamp & VLC anyway so no big deal for me.

so for those who upgraded from vista to windows 7, is there anything you have to do like backup your files and completely reload everything? what about drivers, games, hardware stuff? would that have any effect? im thinking of upgrading.

depends, if you upgrade from an identical version vista to 7 then no, (home premium-> home premium)

however if you upgrade the version too, then you practically need to do a new driver/clean install (it does retain installed software in the windows.old file however)

i found my PS and Solid Edge CAD V20 software a month after i upgraded (as well as the windows.old file taking 55gb of memory lol)

I went from Vista Basic to 7 Ultimate and nothing got lost. All my files and programs were right where I left them.

hmm, i dunno how u did that, it wasnt even an option to retain the info when i went from home premium->professional

i dont understand how something running home basic vista would have enough hardware for 7 ultimate either :s:

Vista, no problems whatsoever. Used varying flavors of linux for a while but went back.

Trying to install Ubuntu Studio 9.10 on my desktop, but the computer apparently can't boot from a DVDRW or a flash drive.
Nope, no sig here.
