  • Pros: It has an attractive look and is quite speedy.
  • Cons: Certain functions that worked great in XP have been tampered with and messed up - see summary. I always say,"If it ain't broke, don't fix it". It's change for the sake of change.

  • Cons: Appears less stable than Vista 64 bit.

  • Cons: It is still a lot slower than XP... Wmp 12 is a garbage and you cant even shift back to Wmp 11
