Summary: In keeping with Microsofts habit of producing a hit after each miss. Win98 after 95, XP after Millenium. MS unveiled Win7 after Vista (and, obviously, before Win8...) After living with it for going on two years now I'm still happy with the product. In fact I just bought another copy for a new machine I'm building even though Win8 is the newer, shinier OS.
Pros: Solid OS, Odd numbered, Not Windows8
Cons: Needed to upgrade a lot of software & hardware because of the difficulty in obtaining updates or drivers compatible with the OS., Difficult (but not impossible)to run Litestep (or other replacement shells) due to the revised structure of the OS
Summary: this was for either my first or second computer build. Fast shipping and loaded with no problems what so ever. Can not figure out how anyone could have problems loading windows 7, the 2nd best windows product.
Summary: I use this Operating System for my Work Laptop. It functions well, is easy on the eyes, and has up to date support. Never had an issue with it. For my Gaming Computer, however, I use 8.1 because it is slightly faster.
Pros: -Stable, -Intuitive and Easy to use, -Fast
Cons: -Not as fast as Windows 8.1 although it certainly is a photofinish
Summary: This is a genuine copy of Windows 7 which activates properly. Shipping was fast and it arrived in good shape. I much prefer Windows 7 over Windows 8. 8 makes it way too hard to find the things we use on a regular basis. Too bad Microsoft has to gouge on price. A hundred dollars is way too much for ANY operating system.
