Keep it, unless you have legacy applications that only run on previous versions of Windows. These days that doesn't even matter much because you can run virtual machines to get past that issue.

After using Vista for a week, I had to go back to XP Pro. After using 7, I stuck with it. I like the new taskbar and how it was much less annoying to use than Vista.

ATM I've got a MacBook Pro with OS X and a custom-built PC running 7. I wouldn't say one OS is really better than the other, they've both got their pros and cons.

Windows 7 is what Vista should have been.

I've been using it since beta (I test new operating systems for work). I think
it's much more user friendly and stable that Vista. That was just an awful product.

Windows 7 still has some issues with driver availability, but all in all I think it's a much better offering than Vista. Especially after turning off UAC.

I have a PC running (if you can call it that) on Vista at work. I'd cheerfully migrate it to Windows 7 if I could. As for myself, I'm sticking with XP Pro on my home PC since it does what I need.

Could not live without media center. Got every tv in the place hooked up to it, 4TB worth of hard drive space filled with almost 3 TB of movies and TV shows. Works like TIVO with virtually unlimited hard drive space and then some.

Love how Windows 7 is much more streamlined and FASTER than Vista.

Then again you couldn't get me to trade ANYTHING for a Mac.

Legacy apps wont run? There's an app for that. However I've yet to run into something that will not run in Windows 7, XP Mode was made so that companies don't have to worry about their in-house stuff breaking, i.e. intranet sites written for older versions of IE. XP Mode will not install on Home Premium.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/vir.../download.aspx

ETA: With XP Mode you install your apps in the VM and then you can launch them from your Windows 7 start menu on your main desktop, no need to boot the VM. You will need a CPU that supports virtualization for this functionality to work though.

Had Vista. Do I like W7? Well it is better than Vista. That does not mean I love it. I have a Mac too. My next computer will be a Mac and this is likely my last version of Windows.

Microsoft really stepped it up with 7. I'm in the very small minority of people that actually left Macs to come back to PCs (still use the iPhone though). Remember folks, with Macintosh you are paying just that little extra bit to be part of the "cool crowd".

Love it! Best Microsoft OS to date. Haven't tried any flavor of Mac OS, yet, that can hold a candle.

I have considered a mac, but they are way too complicated for a simple guy like me to figure out

Not really. I bought mine without the "cool crowd" mind set, and with the amount of crap I have downloaded via Limewire and other virus filled downloading engines...3 years later it still runs like a champ. I don't know if I could ever go back to a PC unless I went gaming. Sure you pay more with a Mac, but I was blowing up PC's at least once a year before the switch

Oh and to the OP, Macs are super simple once you get the hang of them. I used them in college so that helped. Everything just works together

People still use Limewire? Just so you know the default settings in Limewire shares all your documents on the network. Its a major security risk. Torrents are a much better option.

Just remember. With few exceptions, (ME, Vista, 98) Windows O/S work well at first. Once the brain dead hackers begin to figure out how to attack it with viruses, trojans and worms, and you are required to download critical updates every 4 hours just to keep it alive, it will just be another aggravating, bloated, undependable O/S.

Will someone PLEASE start from scratch, design a new o/s for PCs, keep it crisp and clean, and give me some alternative to all of the garbage that comes out of Microsoft? PLEASE!!???

One of the biggest misconceptions that comes attached with the Mac is that it does not get viruses. This is also enabled by the company and thus plenty of users walk around thinking they are immune when in fact they are not. (iWork 2009 Botnet cough cough)

It all comes down to the fact that malicious people who make the viruses and trojans and what not will choose to make these with the greatest area of damage or effect. They will then choose to target the OS that is more widely used. This leaves everything up to the users to be smart and not be doing things that allow them to be attacked in such a malicious ways.

Love it for sure.

MS for sure learned a lesson from Vista. Windows 7 has been by far the most stable Windows I've ever used. The main thing I don't like is the graphic heavy UI. It's too Apple for my taste. The pictures are cleaner but they tell me less at a glance than words. Overall though the execution of 7 has been clean and stable and reliable for me.

You can disable the Aero UI, your desktop wont look nearly as clean though.

Not to mention Torrents aren't spam and adware infested like Limewire is every time you do a search. Plus before you download a torrent you can tell if it is really what it says it is by the comments left by previous downloaders.

I remember back in the day my friend tried downloading Revenge of the Sith with Limewire... and it didn't turn out to be a George Lucas movie.

Of course I know that Calgunners would never violate Copyright protection laws.

I was using the RC for a few months before it was released. when i stopped being able to use that, i actually went out and bought a copy of windows 7 ultimate. It's the only operating system I've ever paid for.

So yeah, it's really good.

Wanna have fun with Limewire?

First, use Frostwire, it is as fast as the paid version of Limewire and it is free.

Second, search for documents, type in "resume" and you will be on people's PCs. Now click "browse Host" and viola, you are ON their computer.

Free voyeurism.

Somehow I've managed to get XP Pro, Vista Ultimate and Windows 7 Ultimate from Microsoft for free. The copy of Windows 7 I got is even signed by Steve Ballmer.
