5 out of 5 eggsPost Tramatic

Pros: Ok, so eventually I found out I needed to 'register by phone'. Once I did that it has run perfectly. So many features, most of which I turned off, but I have the 'option' and that I like.

Cons: I am not very good at understanding Indian accents, and the person was not very understanding on how to give directions in English.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it was a solvable situation that just took time. My only wish was I could addendem my first review instead of having to write a second. But fair is fair.

5 out of 5 eggsEasiest install ever!

Pros: After building with XP all these years, I really didn't expect much of a difference installing 7. I put the disc in, maybe answered one or two questions, and 5 minutes later I was done! I seriously thought it hadn't installed and I was in for the typical Windows install day. I can't wait to build the next system!

Cons: It has the flavor of Vista, in the overall look and feel. I'm an old goat and like things a little better laid out for ease of use. I find that this new way of designing the OS is for a dumbed down society who won't read and need pictures.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm very happy with what MS has done. The customer is more than satisfied, too. The OS recognized all drivers and add ons. It's fast and so far no glitches.

1 out of 5 eggsI wish

Pros: none so far, no number to contact a human being at Microsoft to be found anywhere...

Cons: Installed, no internet, second boot said product was beyond the demo time, and then proceeded to tell me it was not genuine. I then hooked it up to the net, same thing. Re-typed the code, same thing. So now I am stuck until I can find a way to fix this almost $200 blunder.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's an awesome os. Especially, ultimate. So many features.

Cons: Takes too much hard drive space. Over 50g compare to XP 2-4g.

Other Thoughts: I got the 64 bit, but would be nice if it can operate older hardware and software before 2000.

5 out of 5 eggsIn case of difficulty

Pros: It's a great OS at OEM prices.

Cons: It doesn't always activate in a friendly way.

Other Thoughts: If you experience issues with Windows 7 complaining that you don't have an authentic copy, run "slui.exe 4" which will provide the toll-free automated number for phone activation, along with a 54 digit verification number and 54 digit activation code the voice response unit will provide upon verification. This worked fine whereas online verification/activation would not pass.

5 out of 5 eggsim loving it

Pros: Where do i start, W7U is the bomb and Newegg saved me $140 off of retail at certain office stores in my area.

Cons: The Cloud isnt all its cracked up tobe, for some reason the Cloud refuses to set up correctly, even though my network IT buddy tried and tried to get it to work,very sad lol

Other Thoughts: I never thought i would leave XP, i am loving the fact that my seagate HDD >blowed up<(edited do to the filter lol) on me and forced me to try this, otherwise i might still be clunking along lol

5 out of 5 eggsA huge improvement

Pros: Windows 7 is a huge TECHNICAL improvement. Vista was just eye-candy over XP. In Win 7 they have removed some of the eye-candy in favor of performance - interface looks almost the same as Vista. How do I know? Try the magnifier tool in XP, Vista and 7. It is the same cludgy, jerky in XP and Vista. In 7 the whole screen becomes magnified, very smooth. Loading is not as fast as XP, but you can turn on AHCI in BIOS, or get SSD (remember to make TEMP/TMP on hard drive, not SSD).
It is the first technical improvement over XP SP3. If you are plagued with virus attack in XP or Vista, time to upgrade to 7 - it is more secure.

Cons: M$'s first releases are usually plagued with bugs - you might like to wait for SP1. The cost is also high.

Other Thoughts: As soon as they iron out (all?) bugs, you will find a new release. They have to keep selling to sustain their company!
Wish Linux was developed more...

5 out of 5 eggsBitlocker

Pros: Runs really well on my 2005/2006 machine. Athlon 64 x2 4200, 88gts 320mb, 4gb memory

Cons: The price!!! It's so expensive! I took part of the beta and used bitlocker to encrypt my drives. Didn't think that one through and used the beta clear through the date it expired. When that happened the computer wouldn't stay on for more than 2 hours so I could decrypt the drives. So I had to buy 7 ultimate so that I could use bitlocker. Which for just the OEM version is necessarily expensive at ~$180 with the retail version at ~$270!

Other Thoughts: Going to be building a 64 bit machine soon and will need to buy another version of windows 7 for another ~$180. Lower the price please!

5 out of 5 eggsseems stable

Pros: Nice features, quick install, has some similarities to XP.

Cons: None as of yet

5 out of 5 eggsfinally

Pros: XP or 7. is there really any other choice. 7 is so smooth, no issues at all.

Cons: Not a one.

Other Thoughts: as we have found out... millennium and vista were just test platforms for the real OS. XP was great and now 7 is the Boss.
