     XPmeets like vista? NO! xp gets rocket shoes & face lift!

    | | See all NeoTrix09's reviews (1)

    This Version of Windows is the best yet by far, think XP with a face lift and a rocket pack! This OS looks and feels like no other availble with its coulout changing glass effect taskbars and windows. Its far easier than ever before to do anything! Do not be mistaken THIS IS NOT VISTA VAMPED UP! ITS NOT EVEN SUPPOSED TO BE! and you can tell, Microsoft have done a great deal with this and i would shake the hands of them all for this if i could! I urge you to buy this! dont worry about ULTIMATE AND PROFESSIONAL Unless you need them. To the average pc user/ gamer/family this is perfect! the other are not faster or better looking or anything they just have extra features. Have a look at the other versions and extra features! but most will be just fine with this one and at this price who can argue!

     This can be used as the retail

    Microsoft played a crafty one here folks , yes its supposed to be used as an upgrade but you can also do a clean install on a new build with it, you just need to install over the top when it dont accept the key the first time, you see as long as it finds a windows folder the key will work fine.
    so buy this one and not the retail and save half th price in the process.

    As for the windows 7 itself, i have been using it just fine both he eta when it was released and not the retail with only the one minor gripe and that is the x64 driver by ati is a little flaky at the moment , but thats ati's fault and not Microsofts.
    I do have to say that i am impressed at the moment, it feels faster than xp and s loads faster than vista (like ME not one of there better moments) but they have made up for at with& imo

     The best Windows release yet

    | | See all mini71's reviews (2)

    In the words of Steve Ballmer, "Windows 7 is Windows Vista with cleanup in user interface [and] improvements in performance", which pretty much sums it up. This is the user experience that Vista should have had if it hadn't been released too early. Would have been much more exciting if this had been released in 2005 as originally slated back in 2001, but it now just provides a much-needed modernisation of Windows and catches up with the competition in many areas. Great for XP and Vista users with modern hardware. While Home Premium is sufficient for most, Professional includes the "XP-mode" that some might need to run some old software that won't run on Vista or 7. My only gripe is that it that the upgrade should have been much cheaper for Vista users as this is really an essential "service pack" to make Vista more usable as far as Vista users are concerned. Excellent value for those upgrading from XP though.

    After 5 attempts I have given up with upgrading to windows 7, life is to short. BEWARE of this software. I cannot wait for Googles new operating system.

    This is like the Windows XP upgrade, it works really fast, it never freezez like windows vista or "Program not responding" never hapens.

    Easy to install (took me arounf 25-30 minutes) you get options to keep files or reset hard drive aswel.

    I recommend you have 4GB of RAM memory.
