I started using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 at the beginning of this year and is loving it!
Installation was simple, in goes the disc, make a cup of coffee, watch your favourite program, come back and it is completed. Very simple to setup.
Windows 7 offers a refreshing design for users without sacrificing performance, there was never any crash or lagging, simply a good-looking OS with efficient performing power.
There is an improved program compatibility compared to Windows Vista, games runs smoothly on Windows 7 without any error, switching between desktop and games will no longer ruin the game and switches back easily.
However pricing is way too over-the-top. Although this is a nicely-designed OS, it is basically a fusion of XP's performance and Vista's appearance. Users maybe happier to use XP where pricing is more relative to its true value, and the design is not too bad.
