5 out of 5 eggs Not much to say 07/07/2012

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros:

It's Windows, and a 64-bit version to boot, so it will unlock the full potential of 64-bit processors.

Cons:

It's Windows and because it's 64-bit some programs will not run right, but that's what XP-MODE is for. Unfortunately XP-MODE is more for software programs and some hardware that would other work in XP SP3 will not work in XP MODE.

HP has some nice PhotoSmart printers that unfortunately lack Windows 7 64-bit drivers, but using a 970 driver in-lieu of an unavailable 1215 driver got the printer working again.

Had to do this with an Adaptec 2940UW card as well (fully supported in 32-bit, but not 64-bit after XP).

And so the process continues.

Other Thoughts:

Windows XP SP3 has about 2 years left before it's end-of-lifed. I figured it was about time to start updating the computers in the household.
