First impression on Window 7 is really good. Many reviewers feel that it is much superior to current Vista OS in terms of speed, efficiency and design. Do you have high hope for Window 7?

I cannot believe the bloat that has gone on with programs since DOS became obselete. Some programs now are bigger than the entire hard drives of a few years ago. It would be nice not to have the crashes and slow speed that seem to plague computers, especially PC based ones. I know MAC and LINUX users do not seem to have the same problems but MAC tends to be too expensive and LINUX tends not to be as user friendly. Some people swear by Vista, others seem to swear at it, I cannot see Windows 7 as being any worse.

I believe there may be the same problems we all had with Vista. That is compatibility issues. Windows 7 is supposed to use less use less memory and therefore be more efficient. That being said I guess I will not install it until I am sure they have all the bugs worked out of it as in when they come out with the first upgrades to make it less problematic. I am sure of one thing that is change is not always for the good!!

Yeah. Really hate vista, which is extremely problematic running games. Unless you know how to tweak vista, the average users will have a hard time running vista.

Each new version of Windows has offered an improvement over the previous one, with the possible exception of Vista. Despite it's improved security and added features, there is a tendency to take the security aspect too far. Many standard features which we have grown used to have been trimmed in order to reduce security risks. Even the latest office system has this problem, with Outlook 2007 not even supporting animation in emails. I expect windows 7 to be a move forward, but how many more features will be axed in favour of security?

Giving Microsoft's reputation now, it is quite hard to believe they can do a good job with Window 7 in the future. Thanks for your response!

I'm still using XP, I don't have any motivation for changing it to another OS, as long as it is supported and working for me. I haven't really bothered to check out what Windows 7 is all about.

well, i'm really hoping windows 7 would succeed the windows vista and all of the OS from microsoft base... everyone are on high alert when microsoft release windows 7 beta because of its new and interesting features... windows vista was a totally hard blow to microsoft due to its high hardware requirements... so people are sticking with windows xp for this reason... but microsoft promised that this windows 7 would require less hardware and also installs very fast and small installer... let's hope that windows 7 will live to its glory like windows xp once does...

Well...I do hope that it will be a good replacement for the present windows. I am looking forward to a MS OS that delivers the stability of XP and great graphics and interactive user interface like Vista. I think the new OS should use resources more efficiently and has less variation (ie Vista Home, Home Premium,Business,Ultimate). Most importantly is that the price should be made more afforable and present Vista users given the option to upgrade to the new OS...
