What about Vista do you prefer over 7?

definitely you must buy only windows 7. Windows 7 is much more advanced than vista in speed, performance, graphics etc. 8-)

I have a laptop with Vista 64bit and recently bought a desktop pc win Win7 64bit Home Premium.
No problems with either one but installing older programs.
I'm using the laptop mainly for simple applications and internet since it is difficult to install older programs.
With Win 7 I could even install an old version of Adobe Photoshop, InDesign or Illustrator from 2002. I couldn't figure any way getting that accomplished with Vista.
Also with Vista, btw, that I also have on my pc at work, I ran in several driver problems with printers, not even very old printers. I could make the printers working but missing certain features. No problem with Win 7 at all.

So I for sure only would recommend Win 7. Even the Home Premium version is better than any Vista version.

Not really. If you look at the backend, it's not XP; it's far from. There's a reason why it is marked as Windows 6.1 and not Windows 5.2 ;)

the computer (laptop) that I do all my heavy website development, etc on is my old Windows 5.1 ok, i like using version number, its Windows XP :P . Actually, it came with Vista, but I want a fast, reliable computer, and XP beats vista by far in my opinion...

I have a desktop i dont use much, mainly for games with XP.

Then there is the new laptop, it runs Windows 7 Home Premium. I like 7 a lot better than Vista, which i hated :lol: ...... it's an HP that i got from the ol wally world, but it's a decent computer... and is much faster than vista.



Then there is the alternate..... my linux comp running Kubuntu (live CD lol, the hard drive crashed on me :P)

Just an FYI, running via LiveCD will really wear your CD/DVD drive out fast; I know by experience.

I'm using Windows Vista at the moment (it came with the computer) and I don't have any problem with it, in fact I like it much better than Windows XP. Of course Windows 7 is better again, but I don't really see any point in upgrading at the moment.
