Microsoft did an excellent job with Windows 7. I have been using it since the beta, and this is the first time I bought a Microsoft product without waiting for a service pack. I also believe this is the first MS OS that I have never seen a BSOD. Terrific job on 7 I have to say.

The only BSOD I've ever had with Win7 was when the SATA cable to my main drive fell out while it was on. Win7 didn't even care until it needed something that wasn't already in the RAM. That's when I got the BSOD, although I can't blame Win7 for that.

I guess it's like the transition from win98 to ME/XP all over again. How sad to compare Vista to ME...

anyone remember when Windows 2000 was THE choice for gaming OS?

then XP dominated that market after SP1 came out....

Vista was pretty decent OS but not great for gaming as it was actually slower than XP on many popular titles....

YAY for MS to get Windows awesome again after so many years!!!!

O M G~ ~ ~ ! ! !

Nothing was worse than the migration to Windows ME! Are you NuTZ!? Except perhaps for the Logitech input device users that had the Logitech software installed when they upgraded to Windows 2000 and their system BSOD! Omg and then the Driver war was on and everyone was pissed that microsoft didn't have drivers for there hardware and vendors decided .... oh ... well....ok i guess we will create drivers for Win2k but, don't expect to see them for another year.....failsauce vendors....Creative.com anyone?

Our company is actually moving to Win7 from a 99% XP Pro desktop environment. I have Vista and Win 7 at home its absolutely painful for me to use XP anymore.

One thing I do have to note is that I have had about 3-4 BSOD since running Win7.

I certainly want to see those numbers, I want to see the numbers for all the OS's.

I rarely use XP anymore. My recently built desktop is windows 7 X64. And although I still have XP on my laptop in dual boot with Linux Mint, I mostly use Linux.

I still haven't really seen a real difference between Vista and Win7 (at home and work as an IT professional for 20 years). Both work perfectly for me just as Windows ME did... go figure. Heck, I seem to be the only one who liked ME more then Windows 98 (which fixed all the problems I had with 98).

The X.1 editions always do far better. We learned that with Windows 3.0/3.1, Windows 95/98, and Win 2000/XP. Looking at the internal versions, Windows 95 is 4.0 while Windows 98 is 4.1, Windows 2000 is 5.0 while XP is 5.1, and Vista is 6.0 while Windows 7 is 6.1. Windows 7 fixed everything that was really wrong with Vista. It really doesn't surprise me that it is doing a lot better than Vista. These adoption lines are virtually the same as Windows 2000 compared to Windows XP.
