Number 7 for Luck?

AdvantagesMuch nicer on the eye, less crashes and issues

DisadvantagesStill slows my computer, may take some getting used to

"The netbook/laptop I am currently using has been mine now for four years. When I bought it, Windows 7 was pretty new and having had a bad experience with Windows Vista, I was a little worried about whether it would be an improvement or worse yet. I had been hoping to revert back to XP, the better operating system that preceded Vista, but decided to take a leap of faith. I will make a lot of comparisons to Windows Vista, the previous operating system ..." Read review

The Right Move, Microsoft! Review with images

AdvantagesGreat for home and office use - quick, reliable and simple!

Disadvantagesnone.

"...as we all know – Microsoft have always let users do this with all versions of Windows – however Windows 7 comes with a whole new sound scheme with some pretty nice sounds too. Sounds can be turned off completely, or maybe even changed to something a little better sounding. The user can also add their own downloaded sounds to the library and use them within Windows. I personally like to use the sounds which came with Windows 7, as they do sound a hell ..." Read review

Windows 7 - The Best OS Yet! Review with images

AdvantagesGreat new toolbar, excellent personalisation, overall brilliant design

DisadvantagesReally similar to Vista.

"'''My first ever Ciao review.''' In July, I downloaded the Release Candidate of Windows 7 to evaluate the new operating system and I have to say it's the best version of Windows yet! It surpasses Vista in every way. Windows 7 is not available yet but I'm encouraging all Vista uers to upgrade in October as soon as the software is released. In the rest of my review I will outline some of the key features. For starters, the toolbar has been changed ..." Read review

Windows 7 - it makes Vista look like a beta

Advantagessmooth, quick, easy to install and use, pretty to look at, simplified for the masses

DisadvantagesVista should have been like this - Microsoft robbed us!

" Windows 7 makes Windows Vista feel like a beta. That’s my philosophy. It was my philosophy before I bought Windows 7 and it’s still my philosophy now. That’s where the “it looks like Vista” comments come from. Windows 7 is Vista without all the rubbish. Everything people moaned about in vista is gone (or improved) and 7 is more spangly and all singing and dancing. It looks better, runs more smoothly and is simple to use. You might even say its been ..." Read review

Believe the hype!

AdvantagesWorks well. robust and resilient, user friendly.

DisadvantagesThe upgrade took time and needs to be left alone to do its job. Do not interrupt!

"...like a different beast and Microsoft had shuffled some of the functionality, but it appeared very slick if cumbersome. The laptop was shipped with 1 gb of ram, and a 1.6mhz pentium processor and it struggled to do anything. After upgrading to 2gb, it was slighlty better, but I was resigned to it being a poor performer. Eventually I added a gadget to display the processor and memory performance to the desktop, and the processor gauge indicated that ..." Read review

An idiot proof system

Advantageseasy to use, reliable

Disadvantagesa lot to explore and get to grips with

"...to adapt to it. The microsoft help centre seems to be up to date with its uses and features when I have needed support. I have found this facility quite efficient and useful. I am about to buy a laptop and I would definitely opt for this version and I have recommended it to many friends and family already. It seems quick and efficient to use. I have the 64 bit version of Home Premium installed and that’s all you need on a modern PC so the shop person ..." Read review

Windows 7 overview

AdvantagesEasy to use, Aesthetically pleasing, User friendly

DisadvantagesNot enough variation from vista, no desktop button

"...recent release of the new Microsoft operating system windows 7 many people believe windows vista will be forgotten about with its constant security alerts and lack of user options. The new operating system has many new features which I will run through now. Firstly the new taskbar down at the bottom is a lot easier on the eye as it no longer has any text whatsoever, instead Microsoft have opted to use just the logo of the software the user currently ..."

It's so easy to use, my un-techsavy mom can check Facebook!

AdvantagesWorks well, has a nice look, and is very user friendly.

DisadvantagesNothing! (So far...)

"Windows 7! As I quietly type across my slim keyboard on top of a beautiful interface, I can definitely say this is a very top notch operating system! After being burned by Vista, I was afraid to go back into Windows 7, but I heard some friends talk about rather positively, so I decided to try it out. My XP computer finally died on me, which was sad, but now I'm glad that happened. (Luckily, I was able to save everything on the hardrive!) I picked ..." Read review

7 is definately Microsoft's lucky number!

AdvantagesEase of use, Better use of application, Aero features, XP Mode, much much more

Disadvantagespossibility of loosing data when upgrading

"...complete flop of Windows Vista, Microsoft were quick to jump back with Windows 7. After doing a little bit of research, I thought it would be a good idea to give it a try, so we bought the Home Premium family pack for an extremely reasonable price of £149.99 (considering that a single licence was £79.99). After backing up my Hard Drive (I would recommend doing this in case you loose some of your data due to the installation, it can be done very easily ..." Read review

Windows 7: Is what Microsoft is saying really true?

AdvantagesRuns really fast, Some very good features, any decent machine can run it.

DisadvantagesThe Price. It looks like vista and it really is just a brush up on the old OS

"...7 has been said by Microsoft as being much improved and everyone would be happy with the end result. But is it really better, below is my review of a few sections which I believe is most important and compare it to older versions. Speed: 9/10 Much faster than Vista. To compare with the Vista OS, on Vista it took around 30 secs to 45 secs to boot up and log me in. Now on Windows 7 it takes 20 - 30 secs to boot up. Shut down is also so much faster. ..."

Windows 7 Premium In A Nutshell

AdvantagesSimple, Easy to use, No unnecessary Microsoft clutter like in Vista

DisadvantagesBasic Shortcuts have been changed, such as CTRL+N for new folder doesn't work anymore

"...way vista should have been. Microsoft have actually done it with this one. It doesn't hang, or sulk when things are going bad. It doesn't randomly lock up and it makes using a computer enjoyable again. As most people have seen the adverts, you must be well aware of the snap functions, and the automatic sorting of media files and documents. But some of the small things have gone unnoticed. Such as: * When downloading something, or installing, W7 can ..." Read review

So much better than Vista! - Windows 7 Home Premium Review with images

AdvantagesEasy to use, user fiendly and loads of great features!

DisadvantagesCan cause some machines to run slowly, depending on specs.

"From experience using the well known and well hated Windows Vista - I decided a few years ago to switch to Windows 7. As a computer builder I like to know what's best for my build. I had tried Vista on several machines but Windows 7 was really the one that opened up a whole new set of possibilities and features! Windows 7 made it really easy for me to customize the computers I build in every way I need. From the simple things like installing programs ..." Read review

Wow! Sped up my Computer Really fast!

Advantagesspeeds up your computer really fast, cool new features, good looking,

Disadvantagesnothing yet!

"I bought Windows 7 Home premium for 80 pounds in Heathrow airport because my laptop (Dell M1530) was just unbelievably slow. I loaded windows 7 on and now it is faster than ever! It comes loaded with Internet Explorer 8 but i have fallen in love with Google Chrome so i use that instead. 80 pounds is a lot to pay to speed your computer up but it is definitely much cheaper than a new laptop. It looks quite a bit better than Windows Vista and has a few ..." Read review

AdvantagesSimple, easy to use,

DisadvantagesWont work unless you have fast pc, To many warnings and ect

"I have currently upgraded to windows 7 home premium, its like the advert says, computing is easy, but you will need a fast computer though for it to work, Anyway home premium is the cheapest but the best for in the house, you can install stufff, download and ect but you will need a good anti-virus system for it to work fully or it just nags at you, Most things must be added on though, it doesnt come automatically, like movie maker isnt on there ..."
