2 out of 5 eggs Not for Home Networking 01/08/2013

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

Pros:

Nicer GUI than Windows XP, more efficient utilization of RAM, support for > 2tb hard drives and better support for HD video

Cons:

After eight hours, could not get Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit to network with other computers. I have the simplest home network in existence: all wired via ethernet to a router. What could be simpler? No passwords either. Windows XP works fine, no problem. Linux Mint works fine, no problem. Windows 7 Home Premium? Can't get it to show up on the network---no way, no how. If you have a home network, better prepare to spend $99.95 an hour talking on the phone to Microsoft Technical Support, or else go without your home network.

Other Thoughts:

If you don't bother with a home network, and all you do is play video games, then all right, this is the OS for you.

I have a home network, and expect my computers to connect to it without my having to spend 100+ hours troubleshooting.

Microsoft just can't seem to get it right after XP. Each OS it has released since XP has been severely flawed in some way or another. I've had enough--made the switch to Linux Mint. And that's that.
