Great OS 08/23/2014
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-Bit
Fantastic OS. Easy to use and enjoy. A worthy grandchild to XP.
Plenty of features to tweak if you are into that and if you're not, you can more or less fire and forget and let the myriad options take care of themselves.
Plays nice with games and programs, even my old ones going as far back as Neverwinter Nights 1.
It's not bacon.
After using the legendary WinXP for ages I decided to upgrade to a 64bit build for the new rig. Ordered Vista and discovered the nightmare that steaming pile was.
Moving on from that as soon as Win7 was released thanks to the free upgrade deal I found the true successor to XP. I've got Win7 from this version to Ultimate on four home computers. Everyone is happy and it's intuitive enough that my children figured it out fast.
Great OS, even better than my bias towards XP. Gonna run it till the wheels fall off and hopefully completely miss Win8.
