"Don't waste your money if you have Vista."3.0 starson by ralph_234z6e7x085
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.
