I have been using Windows 7 for a good while now, and I have to commend Microsoft on the new OS. It is very stable, and I really like the new layout. I never jumped on the Vista bandwagon, and so damn glad I didn’t! But 7 is well worth it. There def is a learning curve that goes with it, but you do not need to be a brain surgeon to pick up. I’m so glad the graphics got better, and the processing is a lot faster, faster than my Win XP. The only crazy thing I am running into is the ability to add certain software’s on there. Even though I install running as "win xp sp 2" mode, they still do not work. I might need to get another person involved to help solve this, but so far it’s all positive remarks from my end. If people are still scared to make that plunge, I say go for it. There are always updates that are being patched out, but still the OS is very stable. There are so many new features that Microsoft has added, its def worth a test drive. (and no Microsoft did not pay me for this endorsement, but it would’ve been nice!)
