Don't Bother

Nicholas G., Newegg
26 October 2009
  • Summary: Windows 7 is out. Get it. Its Lovely.
  • Pros: Don't even bother with this joke of an OS. Only thing worse was WinME but in my opinion its a good competition.
  • Cons: To the IT guy saying it only has a bad rep: Working at F(r)ys for 10+ years doesn't mean you know anything about computers. Networking is RIDICULOUS in Vista. You haven't found compatibility issues because you haven't tried to do anything with it. Installing Google Desktop and Yahoo messenger are...

Worst OS I've ever worked with...

Russell B., Newegg
13 October 2009
  • Summary: I can't wait for Windows 7 to come out so I can get rid of Vista on my computer. I hate this operating system with a passion. I've never worked on something that freezes this much.
  • Pros: It looks good and the layout is pretty
  • Cons: The networking features from XP aren't available in Vista. It was mainly made for looks and for people who don't know much about networking. I'm a network engineer it Vist makes it hard to do things like set a static IP address and telnet into a device. My computer freezes at the drop of a hat. I...

Worst $175 ever spent

Brandon C., Newegg
29 July 2009
  • Summary: Yes, my other thoughts have to do with how much of a waste of my time this order was. After spending $175 on This disk, one would think that somewhere, out there, there would be some kind of help. Microsoft wanted to charge $59 dollars to help me fix their problem. I refused.
  • Pros: It's 64 bit...
  • Cons: The most absolute worst piece of software I have ever had the displeasure of purchasing. Let's begin with Installation... Installation failed on the first run, why? I don't know. I went through a full hardware check of everything on a separate computer. No problems there. Finally updated the bios...

Not Impressed

Rob P., Newegg
3 July 2009
  • Summary: I gave it a fair chance but there are still too many compatibility issues. I've been building systems for many years and am a power user of my machines. I've ran into a few too many problems with things not working right with this particular OS.
  • Pros: Looks nice. Easy to install. Windows 7 upgrade. Easy to figure out.
  • Cons: Slower than other Microsoft OS even with 4gb memory. Still has compatibility issues with certain programs although they may not all be Microsoft's fault at this point (but maybe they are too). Cost too much, they should be giving this away for free.
