    Windows 7

    Got a new laptop a coupla weeks ago (early christmas present) and it came with windows 7. Now I got ride of vist on mu previous machine but figured I'd give windows 7 a chance. So far it apears to be rock solid.

    You guys need to get with the Microsoft public awareness program. . . "Vista never happened, Vista never happened".

    Mac all the way since 1984 - I was forced to work with window based platforms when I was a Technology specialist for Citrus County School District.

    What a pleasure it was to come home to a real machine....

    I've heard nothing but good things so far from those using 7. Personally I turned off all the security crud on vista and haven't had many problems with it.

    I just had problems 'finding' things on Vista. Upgrading all my machines to Windows 7 at somepoint. Already did the 64 bit upgrade on the music studio computer and it works like a champ. Things just seem easier to find.

    Not sure what they did with Vista, but seemed like they wanted something 'different', and they got it, and it stunk!
