     The best product microsoft has ever made!

    | | See all Lovewizard's reviews (67)

    Think of windows 7 as an ultra service pack for windows vista its what windows vista should of been! this was microsoft's last chance to get things right as microsoft use to dominate the operating systems market but with stiff competition now from google and the new snow leopard operating system soon to be released meant that microsoft had to get windows 7 right to remain in the competition and i am pleased to tell you boy have they got it right!!!

    I built my own high spec desktop and was running vista with no problems at all, from what I've seen most users where getting problems with vista when they tried to install vista on a branded pc with old hardware, as long as your hardware was up to date there were few if any problems.

    I bought windows 7 professional for my desktop and was soo impressed with it i bought windows 7 premium for my HP laptop and windows 7 run's like a dream on both my desktop and my laptop.

    I have used windows since windows 98 and previously my favourites were windows 98se and xp but windows 7 is the ultimate operating system!

    I could go on all day about how good all the features are but i will leave that to others here instead i rather tell you i been reading forums on windows 7 from system builders, ordinary users and I.T experts for many many months and after reading such positive things about windows 7 i decided to buy and soo happy i did!

    Hmm windows vista is like marmite people either love it or hate it, some people are stuck with windows xp and in some ways i can see why as it's a stable operating system but even xp had its problems in the early days of release just like vista and xp, xp does not support direct x10 and has it's limitations.

    Think of windows 7 as a mixture of windows xp & vista and much more stable on release than xp or vista ever was on release and both my computers run so stable i dont see the need for any service packs.

     Based on the full retail version (not the upgrade)

    I was expecting great things from this OS, and got it!! First off, those of you thinking it's just Vista re-vamped, well think again. This is more similar to XP than Vista, sure some of the features and icon's are similar, but this is a full new OS. I'm running the 64-bit edition, and havn't come accross any problems so far. The speed is unbeleiveable, navigating through menu's, folders, files and programs is intuitive, and fun. With all the funky new features like: Windows shake, just shake the window you need and it minimizes all other windows, to save clutter. The snap feature, simply pull a window from the top of the border, and it will minimize it automatically, do the same with another window, and then simply "snap" them together to compare both pages, side by side, at the same size. If you have more that 1 page open, weather it be and Internet page, a folder, or even programs. The icons will no longer clutter up the bar at the bottom. Simply hover over the icon on the left and a preview bar will appear. This bar has a mini preview of every page that is open and you can navigate through and as you hover over the different pages, a full screen preview appeares enableing you to pick which page you would like. These are just some of the cool new features. As well as that, the whole look of it has been vastly improved, building it around the well loved "Aero" feature. So to wrap it up, if you wan't the ease and functionality of XP, mixed with cool styling and state of the art effects and graphix, and with a new level of security, and a fresh approach to Operating Systems? then buy Windows 7
