well the point i guess, is gaming will get only better, I mean Vista was way lower than XP, even when it was officially out...this 1 is in Beta and it exchanges blows with Vista.
Honestly this windows should be a 0-50$ upgrade for retail holders with Ultimate in My opinion....I mean a new windows not even 3 years later....and the crappy support vista had in its 1st year. This is my opinion.
Either way its looking good, same gaming, with faster booting and overall more stable and easy to use OS. Finally....I don't like the start bar, at all.
Yeah, every reviewer I've seen thought the start/task bar was a bit weird. Hopefully they'll improve it in the final. I've always liked XP's bar personally. And the main reason I'll try Windows 7 soon after it comes out: I'll still be getting free Windows OSes through college
Well, I can get Ultimate for the price of the CD ($5) but I wanted 64-bit (and for some reason our Ultimate is only 32-bit) so I had to get Enterprise as a free download instead. Not sure exactly how it compares to Ultimate, but it has everything I need.
EXT64, is your college like mine that your license is only good as long as you still go to the college, though? Assuming you're a totally law-abiding student, that's a severe streak of not-as-much-fun.
I can't believe you expected to see a noticeable difference at all.
"Was" is the keyword there, it's typically faster than XP by a small margin now. Very small, and only in games.
Thats exactly what I was set out to prove, that Vista was worse than XP, and it caught up to XP and some what beat it. While Windows 7 should be better, since its already caught up to Vista...it can go only up right?????
Then again we said the same thing with Vista, and the file Transfer over the network in windows 7 still isn't faster than Windows Xp.
Haha, well, to be fair I did technically pay for it. It was part of a bundle I had to buy when I started, so I consider it part of tuition. Even if you do count it as a separate purchase though, it was (is) an awesome deal and has saved me hundreds of dollars.
