I am infuriated over Microsoft's release of Windows 7 aka Vista SP3.
I lost track of the amount of time I spent reformatting and reinstalling Vista when it was first released. There were never answers I upgraded twice. First to Vista Ultimate 32 bit then to Vista Ultimate 64 bit hoping that would help solve the problems which turned out to be the operating system. Vista's release was not very successful and it developed a bad reputation so instead of the planned SP3 they changed the entire name and expect us to pay full price to upgrade to Windows 7? Come on. Linux here we come?
Windows 7 is NOT an upgrade of Vista ... I am a die hard Mac user myself but at work I have to use Windows. Comparing Windows 7 to Vista does Microsoft's new OS absolutely no justice. It is like saying Apple's Leopard was an upgrade to Tiger.
You should give Windows 7 a try ... currently it is still freely available to the public for testing.
As for Linux: sure, go ahead an use Linux. If it makes you happy, nobody keeps you from using it. Linux is secure, stable, and has more distributions on the market than you can shake your stick at ... not sure if that is what YOU are looking for.
I would not go with Vista, I've heard of too many probs with it, we have xp home edition but my bf has to use Vista at work and he doesn't like it.
To be honest he built our computer after vista came out and he still went with XP,,, If I were you I would just back to XP. I don't know anything about Linux, but I wouldn't waste anymore time .
I'm sorry I can't be more help.

actually, there is really no "THE BEST" os in the market.. It's all about user preference.. but I can give you the most preferred OS'es by the masses..- Windows (7, xp) - these are preferred by people because of its "user friendliness" and a lot of softwares are compatible with...

Which Windows do you think is the best? and the worst?I recently wrote a hub about the reputation that Windows Vista has gained, but now with the release of Windows 8, I have to ask... which Windows do you think is the all-time best? and which is the all-time worst?

I thought I was buying the whole Windows 7 from Dell when I wanted to upgrade from Vista. I now find out that this is just an "Upgrade" which means that Vista is still on my hard drive, just with Windows 7 running. I have to keep Vista for 7 to work. Dell tells me that Vista is still...

So I've been getting the Windows 10 pop-ups for the last several months and I've been clicking the "no thanks" button on every one. This morning, I wiggled my trackball to wake my PC from sleep mode and fracking Windows 10 had installed itself and only needed me to press the accept or...
