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 ..."

Windows 7 Is Micro$oft's Best Yet!

AdvantagesGraphical uplift with some nice new features. Overall feels alot more modern.

DisadvantagesFairly pricey and difficult to find things if you are used to older versions.

"Windows 7 is an operating system for your PC or laptop. Some noticeable changes in this version are the desktop layout. The icons appear somewhat larger on the desktop although this can be changed through various custom options. The icons in the system tray are also larger and have been changed slightly graphics wise. As well as an all round graphical uplift there are more help files readily available if you get stuck with things. Overall it has a ..." Read review

The ultimate Windows

Advantagesa whole whack of new features like the drag and snap

Disadvantagesas with any windows some people experience lag, or slight confusion on the new look

"it's an understatement to say windows has made a giant leap from windows vista. restore all faith i had in the windows product! love all the new features, much easier to get what you want when you want. I would definatly recommend windows 7 for even the most novice of users. Most drivers are found quickly and easily simply by plugging in the hardware, wich is a huge step up from previous windows taking out the heavy reliance on pesky driver disks ..." Read review

Windows 7 - The best Windows package?

AdvantagesThe look of it, no problems and doesn't break down as easily

DisadvantagesMay be quite difficult to get used to, forces you to buy Office 2007 at a high price

"...7, forcing you to purchase Microsoft Office 2007 (which is not cheap). Although, wisely I feel, all new computers and laptops are now bought with Windows 7 as standard. The toolbar and start menu are tidier and there are no pointless options or features like those that were found on Windows Vista (i.e. "Delete Recycle Bin" - ???) Although this system is not exactly a necessity as other systems work just as well, it is great looking and helps people ..." Read review

Windows 7 - the new Windows!

AdvantagesGreat performance and beautiful interface.

DisadvantagesPerhaps still behind the Mac OS operating system.

"...awaited new operating system by Microsoft that aims to take computing to the next level. There has been less improvements made than the change from Windows XP to Vista, however, it is clear that there has been a big emphasis put on ease of use and performance etc. Everything within the operating system is just geared towards 'ease of use' and for that reason I really liked it and would recommend it thoughrally. There have been a variety of features ..." Read review

windows 7

Advantagesadded features

Disadvantagescrashes

"...Even though Microsoft has added a load of new features such as the snap tool, easier wireless connections and the toolbar which has the ability to store shortcuts, Microsoft have still not worked upon some of the major flaws of Windows Vista. i, myself, prefer to use Microsoft rather than Apple because of the sheer versatility of the Microsoft range. Microsoft allow a large variety of USB format devices and will search for drivers itself and if ..." Read review

Windows 7 is a good operating system but takes time to adjust to!

AdvantagesFast and Stylish

DisadvantagesTakes time to learn how to use it!!

"Windows 7 - The thing everyone seems to talk about. Windows 7 is an amzing os for almost everything! The only main downside is that it is almost completly differnt to windows XP and later editions which means it takes to time to get used to. For example the my computer section is completly different so it takes time to find files etc. Of course when you get used to the system you will be fine but its just the hassle of learning how to use a PC again. ..."

Windows Best OS To Date

AdvantagesGood, easy-to-use, reliable, flexible and fun all in one product.

Disadvantagesnone

"Easy to use and very professional finish. When i first got windows 7 it was still running through its release stage so it obviously had a few bugs and they were sorted out instantly with windows live updater.. Which to be honest is an amazing little product For eg:- Recently I bought a new graphics card, an nvidea gt220 to be precise and the disc it came with would not load .... so i was in the predicament of hmmm new graphics card no installer ..."

Windows 7 sets a new standard

AdvantagesEasy to use, quick to install hardware, customisable

DisadvantagesNone

"Firstly, I'd like to say that I've always been a fan of Windows products since 3.1. Unfortunately I though Windows Vista was a huge let down after the success and pure brilliance of XP. Windows 7 has changed it all. The most simple and useful thing about W7 is that it's so usable! You can present your information, programs, files, social networking sites and chats in any which way you like as essentially it is fully customisable. It also takes up ..." Read review

Windows 7 Review

AdvantagesGood Advantages

DisadvantagesSo far it hasn't

"It's a lot of bloggers are discussing about the operating system that will come, Windows 7, on their blogs each. Well, now I'm going to review what Windows 7 is. In softpedia.com, there is news that Windows 7 is not Windows 7, but Windows 6.1 or in other words, Windows 7 is not Windows with such a total change from 200 to Windows XP and Windows XP to Vista. Windows 7 is a derivative of Windows Vista, so not too much change can we feel it later. Now ..." Read review
