4 out of 5 eggsA Windows OS I liked

Pros: Easy to upgrade.
XP Mode worked better than expected for legacy applications.
Other advanced features for power users.
Stable, reliable version of Windows- 7 was best version Windows.

Cons: It's a Windows OS. Comes with baggage-
"Activation"- proved a PAIN for a customer without internet.
Not nearly as flexible as Linux.
Major hardware upgrade could leave you contacting MS to beg to use the software you paid for.

Other Thoughts: I am a Linux user and beta tested most of the last few Windows OSs. If I had to use Windows as my main OS, I would use this- a mix of better stability,, usability and security. The MS license is just too rigid for my tastes.

5 out of 5 eggsThe way all OS should be

Pros: Takes less than five minutes.

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: Do I really need to spend $80 to have the capability to run more than 16GB of RAM and XP mode?

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it is supposed to do...

Pros: It's simply an activation key for a Windows version upgrade. It was a simply process to undertake. Enter the code and five minutes later, you have Windows 7 Pro.

Cons: Microsoft software is expensive, but that can't be helped by Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsUpgradeulishous

Pros: Easy to upgrade windows to Professional. I've wanted to upgrade my desktop to professional so I would have more ram in ever slot. I believe this will allow 128GB if you want to have everything. but I'm loaded at 10GB. and I know that any x86 OS you use you're capped at 4 GB of RAM!!

Cons: LOT OF UPDATES!!!

Other Thoughts: Cheap upgrade for 74.99. Moved my OS to SSD and it's blazin' fast with all this RAM.

1 out of 5 eggsWould Not Upgrade

Pros: None - it might be OK if it worked

Cons: Product Key was accepted without any problem but it would not upgrade. I tried three separate proposed solutions found online but NONE worked. I am seriously going to look at Apple when thinking about a new PC or system.

Other Thoughts: At least my Windows 7 Home Premium still works.

5 out of 5 eggsDifferences between Home and Pro

Pros: There is one HUGE difference between Windows 7 Home Premium and Professional. The same difference as there was between XP Home Edition,and the Professional and Media Center editions. XP Home is built on a different kernal than Pro or M/C. While all versions of Windows 7 are built on the same kernal, there is still the inherent difference in one aspect. Microsoft, in it's infinite wisdom, likes to set aside 20 percent of your available ISP's download speed for some future unknown use. You are unable to get around that if you own either XP Home or 7 Home Premium. However, with XP M/C or Professional, or Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you CAN unlock that other 20 percent. Start task manager, new task and type in GPEDIT.MSC. Navigate to Administrative Templates, Network, and highlight Qos Packet Scheduler. Right click Limit reservable Bandwith and click on Edit. Click Enable and step the Bandwith Limit to "0". Apply and reboot.

Cons: None
