[citation][nom]Ogdin[/nom]So far i see no need to upgrade from vista home premium to windows 7,its the same beast with a new shade of lipstick.[/citation]
95 to 98 - 98 to XP - XP to Vista - Now Vista to win7 XD Though alot of the new versions of most sofware i use are simply that its just funny i cant wait to read all the ill stick with xp vista instead of using 7 D:
[citation][nom]mrfisthand[/nom]How many people even buy boxed software anymore?[/citation]
I do, I don't buy anything Digitally that I can buy physically. I think it's rather silly to, especially since I reformat, upgrade, and experiment often. So it's a hassle to have to keep track of executables and serials in some folder I keep, when I can put a nice box with some nice art up on my shelf, and have a guarantee that I'll have my software/music/video when I need it.
[citation][nom]RiotSniperX[/nom]Get over yourself and your hate for vista/7.[/citation]
Get over my hate lol? I'm using vista now on all my machines and its the most stable windows os i've ever ran.I'm also running the win7 rc on my main computer and so far its been problem free. I have no complaints with 7 so far but like i said,i see no reason to jump from Vista to 7,its only minor tweaks to the vista core. But i guess these comment spots are better served by your informative posts.
[citation][nom]mrfisthand[/nom]PS - This article title is misleading, I thought they were planning to sell upgrades to the OS itself.[/citation]
How is this title misleading? The subject here is that Microsoft might actually sell you an upgrade key to go from one version of Windows 7 to another. This is what I would call "planning to sell upgrades to the OS itself."
[citation][nom]scook9[/nom]and my question is, forgive my ignoranace here, will these "upgrades" require a new install/format? If not, how stable will they be?[/citation]
From one version of win7 to another? No re-install,formatting required scook9.
In some cases they are simply removing artificial limitations of the OS. In other cases they are adding features on to it. But none of them change the core OS and they certainly don't change the file system which is about the only thing that would cause you to NEED to reformat etc.
Hi, just flew in (been gone-you know planetary landings, remote planet sampling, basic space travel...) anyways, whats this about Win 7? I'm using Win 15 4048 bit on a 6.27 AHz Bio Processor. Get with the times people!
The only thing I would like to see, if that is their box style, would be a much more obvious wording on what the upgrade is for. IE, the from X to Y part. I work with the public every day, and sadly, people really are that dumb sometimes. Otherwise, I think it's a good idea, especially like the article said, from the lower 'models' to Home Prem.
