5 out of 5 eggs Surprisingly Good, Satisfying Upgrade from XP 06/22/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium


Windows 7 is the worthy successor to Windows XP that Vista should have been. I was pleasently surprised with how easy and efficient to install on an 7 year old legacy computer. The user interface to Windows 7 are different and it takes a little experience to become profficient. Learning curve is not very steep going from Windows XP. Windows 7 seems to be a very solid OS and the packaged applications are nice.

Windows 7 Home Premium has everything I need for my PC. I see little reason to upgrade to Professional unless you need memory greater than 16 GB.


Limited to 16GB of system Memory and one CPU Socket. I see no need for this. Need the Professional or Ultimate Editions for more than 1 CPU socket or 16GB of memory.

Other Thoughts:

I was able to install a 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium on a 7 year old Intel DG965HW with a Core2 Quad Q6600. Although Intel only provided specific Windows 7 support for the Chipset, I found that Vista 64-bit drivers available for this motherboard work very well with Windows 7.

I recommend this OS.

Going from XP Home to Windows 7 Home Premium is like an American being transplanted to England. The language is the same but the traditions are different expressed in different ways of doing the same tasks.

For Windows 8, its like being transplanted to where all of the English wackos, lunatics and eccentrics live.
