Windows 7 compatible software?(15 posts)
Col, I still have Vista Home Premium, which came with my primary system, installed on a separate drive. That had been my primary OS, but I wanted to experiment with Windows 7. I installed the RC about 8 weeks ago on a 2nd hard drive and started testing my applications. For a while, I was booting back to Vista as my primary OS, but once I had a certain set of core apps loaded in Win7, I hardly ever boot the Vista install anymore.
I like Windows 7, can't recall any major compatibility issues, and find it at least as stable as Vista. I would recommend that anyone who is curious should try it. And when I say "try it", I mean that you should start with a dual boot or run it on another system or in a Virtual Machine.
I have Win7 RC on a separate partition and it's the bomb! Everything seems to run a bit better and faster. An example of this is my overall computer rating in Vista is 5.3. With all things the same, Win7 gives me 5.9. Even downloading files does so at higher kbps. Why this is, I don't quite know. I do plan on buying Win7 and having it as my default OS, so go for it Colin... Garry
