Pros New Aero Features are good.
Considerably faster than Vista.
Touch screen support.
Cons The speed is a lot less than I expected.
Doesn't work too well on Vista-upgrades.Upgrade took 7 hours.
Laggy application startup.
Summary I think this is a tiny 0.000000000000000005% improvement from Windows Vista.
Pros I don't know if there are any pros!
Cons Upgrade? Not really!
Summary I have three computers. When I was thinking of Vista, I decided I wanted the top of the line experience, so I bought Windows Home Ultimate for two of them. The other has Vista Business. Of course, the only 3-pack Microsoft offers is for the Home Premium.
Of course, I can't do an upgrade on any of my three computers. So, my options are spend hours and hours doing a clean install on all of my computers (and losing the programs that I installed years ago and have since lost the install disk - and I haven't figured out what happens to the bells and whistles I purchased Vista Home Ultimate for - Windows Movie Maker?) or I can spend more than $600 for the convenience of upgrading Windows.
I'll be taking advantage of the money-back guarantee!
Pros -Much More User friendly
-Aero Theme transparency Beautiful
-Faster and secure
-Basic or easy to use
-Made for Home users
-Easy to install
-Documents, data, Folders easier to organize
-Action center notifications
Cons -Upgrading from Xp is a wake up call
-Not many Aero color to Choose or make
-Aero Transparency SOMETIMES slow down performance on Vista computers (its very rare so not really a problem)
-No jump list commands for Firefox
Summary The cons are small things i haven't found anything wrong with it nothing with it's security, Anyone who has a problem with there security should just stop expecting Microsoft OS's to do everything for them and get a Anti-virus themselves. I have avast.
The Aero transparency slows down your computer VERY RARELY so its not a problem, the action center will notify if it is slowing down your CPU performance. With the Aero i still see the problem i saw in Vista not many colors to use. The color mixer is great but only the color's they have are basic one's the only way to get more with Transparency.
Upgrading from XP is the bst thing you can do, but Microsoft seems to forgotten the Windows.old folder. You don't have to transfer you files they'll be in a folder called Windows.old depending on what installing choice you choose. You'll have to install all your programs back through.
There weren't any jump-list commands for Firefox, just close window, and open Firefox and pin this program...
There weren't anything else except it's was more customizable but not enough. This isn't a Vista 1.2 or Vista service pack 2, 3 or a cleaned up version of Windows Vista don't say anything based on it's looks if you haven't used it, or how ever some of you people say it. It's Windows 7 and a Operating system.
Pros Some fancy graphics. It's real pretty. Fewer page faults.
Cons It's still just a Windows operating system. Three hour upgrade install from Vista. Worse than the 3.5" floppy days.
Summary Paid $50 each for two copies. I won't be buying a third. Just can't find that much value in the new version versus Vista, or even XP for that matter. Mainly just some fancy graphics. They changed the Vista taskbar. Not sure I like the new taskbar. Doesn't seem as efficient and clean as the old one. As far as running applications goes, can't tell any difference. Not sure why they had to change the Resource Monitor display. Appears as though they were struggling to find some things to change (er, I mean upgrade). I haven't noticed anything that is significantly faster with Windows 7 (Free Ubuntu Linux desktop is faster). I will be surprised if Windows 7 is the financial success for Microsoft that it has been hyped to be.
Pros Runs Almost all the XP software faster more reliable and more user friendly then XP
Cons i'm still working on a couple bugs in games likr tycoon 2s but toontown piarates run great as well as about 5 other games tried
Summary if your looking for a solid system then this is it.you can run this on pentIII with 512 mb memory.
Thanks for your submission!
