    Windows 7

    Post by Squid Math on Thu Jul 16, 2009 4:39 am

    I've recently used Windows 7, and it is great. Here is the pros/cons.
    Pros: Uses way less memory than Vista. Even a computer with 412 MB of ram could run it with out any problems, unlike XP as well.
    It is much faster than XP and it good with users with low ram, and any other users as well. And, it is free from Microsoft, which means, you get a free product key when you download it. Paint is great as well, but as always , Professonal Programs are the best.

    Cons: None.

    Are you sure about the RAM ? And It takes 15 GB HDD!
    You can download it for free for one year on their website.

    I'm sure about the ram, and you need at least 16 GB, which will usually come with a computer.

    No cons?
    Pffft yah right.
    My laptop doesn't work anymore(windows 7 won't load), it happened a week after I got windows 7, and my laptop is only 2 months old. I tried many ways of repairing it but most of the times it failed to repair. After I finally succeeded repairing it, it broke(again) the very next day.

    Maybe it is because you have the beta version, or you didn't take very good care of your laptop.

    Did you get any message about counter-feiting on your laptop ?

    I skipped the key, and then entered it after install. So maybe I'd have that problem too. Oh well.

    That would take a while. So many people that use microsoft do not know of anything else because they are noobs. It may be crappy but some people just have no taste Laughing

    Yeah.
    If they can get into the shelves more then it will pay off. In the UK PC stores, there are like 15 rows of PC's and 1 row of Apple products

    NO WAY WILL APPLE TAKE MICROSOFT'S PLACE.
    Well, actually I am a Microsoft Fanboy and would buy an Apple computer if they weren't so expensive!
    Apple would have been dominant by now if they had lower prices before.

    I want to upgrade now to Windows 7, but it's either do an in-place upgrade which I heard was crap or do a clean install, and I have so much software and programs, that's a waste too.

    You'll have to save all that onto an external hard drive.
    I might buy it.

    Or you do an inplace upgrade, where you keep everything. But it kinda screws everything up.... and you need to back everything up anyway.

    I'm low on cash cause it's all saved up for the 3rd gen ipod touch.
