I just needed to share some of my experience with the free evaluation copy of this OS.
We all know how bad vista is. We all know that xp is really nice but NOTHING compared with MAC OS.
Windows 7.0 has nothing to do with the 2 prev. editions.
1st It is very light. The core of this OS is 128mb instead vista almost 3 gigs.
2nd: Video gaming, video editing, photo editing is much faster and I noticed better colors.
3rd: The loading process is extremly fast and they have some MAC OS goodies.. Like moving a window slightly and everthing in your screen closes... etc etc.
Both editions 32bit and 64bit are totally free by Microsoft till 20th of August this year. After that you can use it for 1 year TOTALLY free with updates.
From 10/7/10 the programm will ask you to buy an original copy or reinstall the old xp or vista, if you got any.
It is a must for PC users. I totally recommend it.
while I had VISTA installed, my cpu ussage with just some typical windows on, was 48%
Now its 0,5% with more applications on!!.
The link to download your FREE copy of windows 7.0 both editions for 1 year.
edit: I picked 64 edition and its a jewel!!!
And a tip. I have some technical experience and knowledge so I didnt upgraded my current windows, but I totally install them from 0 base.. Format etc.. I suggest you the same thing as you will avoid any trojans or spyware you may got. its my first day with windows 7.0 and I think I will stick with it. Its so fast that makes me believe I bought a brand new PC.
my current specs are
6 gigs of ram ddr2 1066mhz (Now it makes use of all ram.. before just 3 gigs)
a very good graphic card with accelerator.
Intel quad Q9400
and 3 teras of hard disk.
Now I feel like I got this specs ..
