Oh damn nigga! Vista "upgrade" disks couldn't do that, could they?


Nope, it's a new thing for Windows 7. A very awesome thing.

I still use windows xp service pack 3 and u?



I use as many Windows as I came across, I use my OEM Windows ME restore from my eMachine PC for any quick wipe to an OS platform I can install on just about any PC with older driver compatibility. As for Windows 7, I did opt to buy one copy, installed on an i3 system, all I could afford was just over $100. I did replace my XP SP2 with a new disc for $150 at the time. No sales on Windows OS! Bill Gates, who luves ya babe?!?

Anyway, ME works fine if you got it on your computer newly installed, not an upgrade! rarely if ever got BSOD on my machine. I use Windows 98 and some of Win95., but not anymore, I opted USB and DVD support covered under Win 9x 98, Second Edition is best for older machines. I use Vista Ultimate and Vista Home Premium, those being 32bit, the Win7 I bought is Premium 64 bit however, and I want a 32 bit for some compatibility, but for better RAM management, you'd be better served with 64bit OS

You might think you're okay running an old OS like ME/98, but in terms of security I really wouldn't dream of using it on the web these days.

Hackers have had 12 years to find every hole and exploit, and they don't provide any of the advanced security features that Windows 7 does (UAC, ASLR, DEP, MICs, UIPI etc). All but the very newest malware doesn't stand a chance on a fully-patched modern system (unless the user is stupid and turns it off), but literally anything on a Win98 system can be accessed in a couple of seconds by anyone with half a brain

64-bit is an absolute necessity if you have over 4 GB of RAM, which I hope any new computer would. With only 1 or 2 GB (or less), 64 bit is not required, and to get better performance and driver/software compatibility, you're better sticking with 32-bit.

Vista x86 on my desktop. Used to be quite a darn beefy system, but that's 3 years ago..
Win 7 x64 on my laptop. I mainly use my desktop and I was quite happy with Vista, but Win 7 feels quite snappy and I'm happy with it. It's a powerful laptop (workstation with i7 and quadro GPU), so I don't know for sure if it works so fast because of the specs or because of the OS..

Can't be bothered to buy another license for my PC now. I'll do that when I upgrade all the hardware (somewhere next year). By the way, I ran de Windows 8 Developer Preview. Now I know it's just a preview, but my impressions weren't grate. In fact, I thought of it to be incredibly shitty. You can't turn off that stupid tablet menu and the desktop has been reduced to the functioning of an application. There's a reason I don't like OSX devices and that I stick with Windows. Why is Microsoft going the Apple way by suddenly forcing all their preferences onto their users ):

Actually, no functionality was removed at all. You could still do everything the same as normal, it's just that huge tablet start menu got in the way and made it far too awkward to use. Looking at the group policies, you will be able to disable it in future versions (closer to release), but tbh I could see Microsoft making this difficult and (wrongly) insisting that everyone have the same experience.

I just bought a macbook pro. OSX is actually pretty nifty - I've only needed a couple of tools to add a couple of missing features (like snap-to-side), and already I'm pretty happy with it.
