I bought this for an older Toshiba Qosmio computer with XP. It worked flawlessly but buyers should know the product up front.

Summary: OEM versions of Windows operating systems are not guaranteed by Microsoft to install successfully on your computer. Buyers need to be prepared to find all needed drivers and applications to make the computer work properly. This is also dependent upon how old the computer is and whether their is still technical support for the installed hardware.
So useful I'm actually wanting more than what it apparently offers

Summary: I love Windows 7, not because of the fact that Windows 8's interface sucks, but because of deeply technical under the hood decisions that were inherent in the design of Blackcomb on which it was based. Steven Sinofsky wanted to move Windows in a user-hostile direction, but when he first tried that with Vista there was significant push back and so he had to wait until the version after 7 or otherwise Microsoft might be run into bankruptcy.
Pros: Everything-until I ran into one feature I needed that even Ultimate didn't seem to have
Cons: That I grew so reliant on it I actually discovered a flaw!
Summary: I like windows 7 but was not ready to move up to it yet as I was going to bulit a new computer with Windows 7. But I had to get it for my blu-ray burner to work. My pro's and con's list the areas, I got a feeling that all or almost all of the cons can be fixed and I just don't know how yet.
Pros: Nice GUI, DX 10 / 11, Easy to use, Better support then Vista, Has hard drive imaging built in so no need for goshting programs.
Cons: Price is still very high, Internet Tabs pile onto one another, To many system pop ups
