    I will probably get windows 7 for a spare computer but will stick with Linux overall...

    What are your thoughts?

    I have W7RC1 on my notebook for a few months, and did not have any serious problem so far. A couple of bugs one can live with easily, that's it. Fast and convenient. smile

    I started using W7 beta in march.  I set it up as a dual boot option on my laptop, because there were many problems with it back then that prevented me from using it.  I have since switched over to Windows 7 (exclusively).  I even deleted my Windows Vista boot option, and removed it from my hard drive.

    I had a test drive of W7 last week. It was intuitive, fast and has been fairly bug free so far I am told. smile

    The current version of windows ... you mean vista? That crap is already such a big pain and now they are up with yet another version. I am not going to even try that. XP was the last best product from them. Enough OS from MS better they concentrate on something else like some good and BUG FREE ERP packages. They are still not to be seen anywhere near Oracle in this field forget about competing with SAP. I wonder how come MS did not venture in this field. They are still miles behind in terms or database and ERP solution. Please MS give your users a break of your OS!

    I have Vista on mine, and my two kids have Vista on their laptops.  None of us have had any problems.  I've heard there were problems if people tried to upgrade, but Vista came with the three computers I mentioned; and we all like it a lot.  When I first got the PC I had to watch to make sure some places had stuff compatible with Vista, but these days it's no longer such a "new thing" (obviously).

    Windows 7 is crap, stay with what you have. I preferred the old XP but have Vista now as that's what my laptop came with !

      you may be able to contact the manufacturer and request an XP downgrade disk to get XP on your current laptop...a new picture?
