    Hmm Windows 7?

    Another software release to soon just like vista was. I think they need to fix one OS then move on. But what is it's real name going to be????

    Longhorn=vista =(OMG CRAPPY)
    then this haha.

    Mojave, Spoof codename used for the Windows Vista "Mojave Experiment" marketing exercise

    Now win7 what a hybrid kernal hmmmmm.. and a nice new shell that my cpu is going to have to work over time for....

    sorry but 98se and xp are the only 2 os's stable.

    What do you guys think?

    Now I have not tested it yet I dont think I want to unless someone can convince me it is worth it.

    Ubuntu with beryl

    XP is certainly easier on the hardware. And Win 7 Is definitely a big improvement over Vista. XP because it is so much older has a lot more vulnerabilities open currently which kind of stinks if you are forced with a Windows environment.

    I have been using win 7 since the first public beta and have to say it is def much better than vista. It also seems more stable than vista and xp. I don't notice it working the hardware, but i don't monitor it. It does look better too.

    I have been running Win 7 from Beta through RC1 and now have the RTM installed on my Laptop. I have test installing this OS on many different platforms already and feel that it runs just as well if not better than XP even on older hardware. I have a Dual Core 2.2ghz Dell Latitude with integrated Video and it runs great. I have installed this on an older Dell D810, Single core Proc 1.7Ghz with 2GB Ram and the integrated intel video, and Aero turns on, and runs great on it. I feel like MS has done a great job at optmizing this OS as compared to Vista. Vista was awesome on the 'new' visuals for MS but it was a beast. Win 7 is much better IMO.

    I just recently bought Vista 64bit through Amazon because I read that Windows 7 is a free upgrade. I am very happy with the way it handles on my system and look forward to October when 7 is released.
    I was a Vista hater for a long time sticking with XP. I'm glad I made the leap.
