I had a few issues with Windows 7, aesthetically. There was just some subtly to it that really threw me off. I thought Windows Vista was just so beautiful, and I kind of figured they butchered the pretty stuff in Windows 7, almost like Microsoft purposely made it so that we couldn't have both pretty and fast in the same package.

I think I managed to pull it together though. What about you guys? Who here had a chance to pick up Windows 7 and wants to express their opinion on either what I did above or what you think about Windows 7 in general?

I knew I'd like it. Okay, I haven't got it yet, it's still being mailed because I got my brand new awesome HD output/input + much more laptop with a tiein for a free upgrade to Windows 7. It looks awesome from what you showed us. Can't wait to ditch Vista. Also, how's the new version of Paint? That's always the most climactic thing for me in a new Windows.

I've yet to see if my campus bookstore carries it cheaper than the online student deal, and I never installed the beta or RC, so I'll get back to you once I've installed it.

Like Ricky, I didn't have problems with Vista. I've been running the Windows 7 RC1 since May and it's so epic I don't like going back to Vista. Windows 7 is just ultimate. Very convenient, and anything that doesn't work I can just run in Windows XP Mode.

Paint is awesome, with new brushes and autoshapes and stuff, just makes life easier.

I too was one of those people who had a rather fantastic experience with Windows Vista. People always thought I was a moron but fact of the matter is, it worked for me. XP worked for me too, but Vista worked just as well and it looked prettier so naturally I went to it. I wasn't losing anything... so the people who called me stupid, are just ignorant.

However I have to admit... Windows 7 is pretty fast. I'm adjusting to the new taskbar which I really didn't like at first, but it's actually a very responsive operating system compared to both Windows XP and Windows Vista. It's a champ, and if none of that appeals to anyone, the new animated Windows logo starting up, is hot! A tad too much bloom for my tastes, but it's got to be the prettiest presentation yet.

Linux is just flipping better.
There's ways to run windows programs OR (if you want to) to run an entire operating system inside Linux, thus making virus's far less effective.

Don't even start... this is not a console war. Take your opinions on Linux or Mac elsewhere.

Windows 7 looks really nice. Wish I had money to get it.

How's mmf on it? Does it seem overall more stable than xp?

Both our study PC's have Windows 7 on them but I'm sticking with XP still. Don't like Microsoft's idea of pretty. Visually it all looks very cluttered and I've never been keen on their font rendering .

I think most people didn't have issues with Vista. It's just people with problems tend to be louder than us who are content.

Thanks for the tips about Paint! I looked it up on Wikipedia too and I think I can safely ditch Adobe Illustrator.

That, and i think the mac people tried to really hype up problems weather or not they existed.

Few things made my blood boiler hotter than to have people immediately ridicule me for saying that I liked Windows Vista. Honest to dear lord, that just made me want to go around punching kittens... and I love kittens. People truly are morons. I mean I love how people who don't even know jack shit about what an operating system is, are out there calling me an idiot for using Windows Vista, claiming they installed it and used it themselves. I'm pointing out in particular, this silly sophomore in highschool who needed me to explain to him what a gigabyte was.

LOL really? It's really a matter of preference. It's the out right lies that bother me, like people saying vista gets blue screens. Um... it only gets those if there is a hardware failure or a bad driver. And that screen is a tool to help you figure out whats causing it.
