Microsoft Windows Vista Home prem

James M., Newegg
17 July 2013
  • Pros: For all the bashing that Vista got for being a terrible OS. I have to say that I had Absolutely NO trouble with it for 4 years. Time to upgrade. Waiting for windows 8 to have bugs fixed. :P
  • Cons: Layouts where good, I thought it was reliable. I relies I didn't use my computer for much else besides gaming and 3D art but during that time no issues.

5 years of torture.

Irene B., Newegg

  • Summary: To continue the torture insert Win8!
  • Pros: It functions. It still has updates for a little while longer than XP and it was capable of utilizing 64 bit operations better than XP.
  • Cons: Security Overkill. Didn't support older version software as well as newer OS.

Not as bad as everybody says

Michael L., Newegg
1 December 2009
  • Summary: As an aside I went through the win7 upgrade last week and I'm still trying to figure out why I bothered. I don't notice any speed improvements over vista and other than eye-candy which I can't see when I'm gaming anyway, it's still the same old windows.
  • Pros: As a long time Linux and OS X user, and an occasional windows user for testing at work, I was really looking for a windows to install for a gaming machine. The low-price and tech upgrade, made this the windows of choice for this. I was dreading using it from all the horror stories, but, believe i...
  • Cons: Overpriced and under-featured. As a standard desktop Ubuntu provides a far more complete user experience for free. However, when this machine is running windows I only using it for gaming, and keep all other non-essential garbage off of it. For this it works fine, just remember to turn off the au...

Works

Hector T., Newegg
24 November 2009
  • Pros: Got this one for the free copy of windows 7. I've been using it since it came out. Only had the problems other people talk about when it first came out, after that it was working perfect. I have more problems with 7 hanging that I never did with vista. Speed is the same as 7 for my setup
  • Cons: It does need a lot of memory but I have 4 gigs so not so much for me

Vista 64

23 November 2009
  • Summary: We also have a laptop with Vista32 and got a W7-32 upgrade. My wife has taken to using it with Vista and not up-grading to W-7. If I had to pay for W7 I would not have gotten it as for my uses I see no real difference between it and Vista. However both are much better than XP-32.
  • Pros: Works well, detects all RAM,looks good, seems quicker online than XP or W7. Came with up-grade. My wife likes the gadgets. I installed this on a XP 32 machine with no problems and switched to W7-64 when I got the up-grade, also installing with no problems. I don't know why Vista got the bad rap u...
  • Cons: W7 is faster booting up.
