3 out of 5 eggsIt's fickle

Pros: My rig hated it, constant crashing, bed wetting and underwear soiling. My daughter's rig loves it. Go figure.

Cons: For whatever reason this was hit and miss.

Other Thoughts: Good luck

5 out of 5 eggsLove the new price

Pros: Free upgrade to windows 7, price

Cons: You need a good system to run vista and win. 7, 64 bit offers upgraded RAM over 4GB

Other Thoughts: Why would you buy window 7 for more than this when you can get two for the price of one!! I just purchased this for a new build I am putting together, now just need the case, cant wait to get it done, I am probably going to install the 7 on my new build and the vista one I am building for my mom.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome OS

Pros: I love vista. I also got this item for windows 7 but I don't know why everybody dosen't like it.

Cons: It is a little slow, but when you build a computer you want it to be fast and the specs should just handle this os fine.

Other Thoughts: Overall I think this is a great operating system. I got my windows 7 upgrade the day after windows 7 came out. Windows 7 is truly amazing!

5 out of 5 eggsFinally...

Pros: MS finally got Vista right. Stable as can be and multitasks well. More intuitive and less obtrusive than Vista. Less of a memory and resource hog also. Still like XP but this version of Windows in 64 bit works very, very smoothly! Have use the grc for many months... but this is slightly cleaner and tuned better.

Cons: Bought an upgrade so I tried that route over Vista64. Sat for 8 hours and never got finished. Stopped it and did a clean install. I tried the upgrade routine several times - each time after re-installing my imaged drive. Tooooo slow. Faster to just clean install.

Other Thoughts: Upgrade dvd does NOT do a compliance check for previous version media as in the past. A clean install is painless and simple. Get an upgrade and save money!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Bought this to replace the Vista Home which came loaded on my Christmas present computer.Loaded beautifully and is a definite improvement . Ordered the Windows 7 upgrade and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was(and free) compared to the free upgrade I had to pay ten dollars for when I purchased XP Pro with the Vista upgrade for another computer when Vista was coming out.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 upgrade due in December but I'm going to make sure some of the bugs are worked out before I load it.

5 out of 5 eggsYour Windows 7 Upgrade is Inside

Pros: - You get Vista Ultimate AND get (upgraded to) Windows 7 Ultimate for a good price

Cons: - Windows Vista... eugh.
- Upgrading to Windows 7 isn't totally straightforward if you only purchased this to upgrade to Windows 7

Other Thoughts: Everywhere indicates that you need to go to Microsoft's main site to get a Windows 7 retail upgrade. However, upon entering the product key, Microsoft stated that I was ineligible for a free upgrade to Windows 7.

However, upon actually opening the jewel case for this product, there was a label on the inside which indicated that I needed to go to a different website and enter in a different key. Hope this helps for anyone else.

4 out of 5 eggsWIN7 upgrade is a lie

Pros: Good OS, I guess i will have to live with it now....so glad its working fine.

Cons: The Win7 upgrade coupon with the OEM version only applies to OEM's who are partners with Microsoft (ie major brands). You as a private system builder DO NOT QUALIFY for the upgrade. I got this info straight from MS when I attempted to place my order for the free upgrade. Therefore this offer is meaningless. I cannot get the upgrade.

Other Thoughts: There may be some savvy buyers out there that knew this and avoided, call me naive if you must. But if its advertised, it ought to be true. Can't blame MS on this one too much as this is apparently the policy, this rests squarely on Newegg. I mean, Dell's not buying their copies of Vista from here, so who did they think was buying it? Newegg knows it is not major OEM's buying this and should not have used the free upgrade coupon as a selling point in red heading text. It did come with a coupon, however the coupon is unredeemable.

3 out of 5 eggsNot what I hoped for

Pros: It does run in 64-bit and can access larger amounts of RAM.

Cons: Driver Support and Software support, especially in Photo and Video Editing, has never seemed stable. Several attempts at long term usage have resulted in having to reload the OS. 32-Bit Vista Ultimate was more stable, but I needed the 64-bit platform.

Other Thoughts: I bought this so I could get Windows 7 for less than retail cost. The Windows 7 64-bit Beta and RC have worked more reliably.
