I just have to say it, my Windows 7 experience has been less then great... In fact its been horrid. I have built my first computer just recently from the ground up with my own choices in hardware, nothing is defective and yet Windows 7 has been giving me nothing but issues. I honestly dont see what is so great about it, its all flashy effects and unstable as all heck. I have had no less then 20 bluescreens and that number counting by the day. Many times 7 refuses to start properly, or starts but bluescreens off the bat, I have had issues updating as well and its been one headache after the next. I dont get it, all this hype Microsoft gives to 7 and its no better then Vista on my machine, heck I rather have XP again with all the issues I have had. I am beginning to wonder if paying the $140 I did on the OS is worth it, heck I have had more success with Linux then I ever did with Windows. I use Ubuntu linux 10.10 and so far its crashed far less, had not nearly as many issues and works better in my opinion. Windows the better OS? Not to me.
