Longtime subscriber James Biddle wrote about his upgrade to Windows 7:
I had one hickup with Win 7, my 32 bit disk was corrupt.
It took a few hours on the phone to figure it out.rather than go thru the hassle, I just used the 64 bit disk (included) and bingo! I’m a happy camper.
Win 7 boots in 30 seconds! It shuts down in less than a minute. It’s beautiful and works great. I will get a family pack license upgrade after Xmas and install the 64 bit on my work computer.
The computer I installed it on is my quad core gaming rig.
I bought it from the MS store for $50.
They finally did it right. The last great MS OS was Windows 3.11.
Keep up the great work!
I agree with James on that — Microsoft got Windows 7 right. It’s what Vist should have been.
Quick and peppy, if feels to me that the interface is as responsive as Windows XP on my notebook. It really flies on my son’s homebuilt gaming computer.
It’s definitely not anything to be scared about. Whether you upgrade your current computer to Windows 7 or buy one with Windows 7 already installed, whether you’re currently using Windows XP or Windows Vista, I think you’ll enjoy working with Windows 7.
