If you have been paying attention to my blog then you know I don’t recommend Windows 7. I am sure it is an improvement over Vista, but I also suspect it still won’t perform as well as Windows XP.
If you know me at all you also know that I had to try it. So here goes… I loaded Windows 7 Professional on my Laptop today and am in the midst of loading all my software and files etc…
Here is the preliminary boot after some updates – basically fresh after install.
Once I have everything I need running on my laptop again then I will report on my experience and let you know how it performed. Since Windows XP is still loaded on my other drive I can always compare.
I have been using Windows7 for a while now with a dual boot computer, but still favor the familiar XP. However, on my laptop which came with the ugly Vista, I immediately swaped it out for the Windows7 which seems extremely stable, even more so than XP. Unfortunately, I stil haven’t discovered any added features in the Windows7 platform that WOW me, but I would opt for the new operating system over Vista anytime!
