I was really curious if any of you that upgraded to windows 7 noticed real improvements especially on the performance?

I run 64bit vista ultimate and i did not yet had any big problems but i still wanted to hear your experiences with the upgrade to windows 7 :)

  • sorry if this subject is all ready discussed, i could not find it.

Cheers

Uhm… basically it’s like this… get YOUR ASS to the nearest Best Buy and buy yourself a copy of Windows 7 and get rid of that piece of crap ass Vista. Windows 7 is literally flawless. I like the call it the Windows XP with Vista’s pretty looks.

I’ve used the BETA and RC version for 6-7 months, and now got myself the official release version, and couldn’t be happier. Never had any problems with it, and I doubt I ever will. I run Adobe Photoshop CS4 , Dreamweaver CS4 , Firefox with like 20-30 tabs at any given time, Notepad++, TweetDeck, Winamp, Skype, XAMPP , and occasionally more browsers such as Safari and IE when testing, and always without the slightest hiccup.

I ran into a few hiccups during the install becuase I had some incompatible programs (MagicDisk, Putty, etc.), but once I got it installed properly it worked perfect.

I’ve been working on it nonstop doing heavy design tasks over the past couple days. Windows 7 feels a lot more stable and quicker than Vista was – programs load up with a lot more snap (no weird lags when I fire up Photoshop) – the Sticky notes are a simple, but awesome little addition. The Start menu is light years ahead of the last iterations on Vista (I love that I can pin folders/apps in a more efficient manner). The font management improvements alone is worth the upgrade if you work with fonts as much as I do. File handling, organization, and searching has been improved quite a bit as well. In short, it’s everything I’d hoped it would be and a little bit more. It gets a strong recommendation from me.

Well said Phoenix. Seriously… this isn’t the same situation as Vista where it made sense to wait a few months for MS to work the bugs out. So far it’s been quicker, simpler, and way way way more usable than Vista on it’s best day. No driver issues at all (and I have a bizarre hodgepodge of parts in my work-horse of a PC). This actually feels like the first modern, usable OS released that works the way that people expect it to.

well my bro has it on his laptop and I can say it’s a splendid OS, the functionality, quick responses and so far not a single problem. By far the best OS from Microsoft.
