Do You Plan On Upgrading To Windows 7?

Tue Oct 20, 2009 12:11 am

Well, with the release of Windows 7 just a few days away, I was wondering, do you plan on upgrading to Windows 7?

I preordered Windows 7 last July when Microsoft was having a special offering Windows 7 Home Premium for $49.99. I am currently using XP. I checked the system requirements both with Microsoft's Upgrade Advisor as well as PC Pitstop's tester, and I passed the tests with both of them.

I don't plan on upgrading, I'll stay with windows xp 64 bit or Ubuntu linux. I only use the XP partition to play FSX, and microsoft discontinued Flight Simulator, so no new versions of Windows for me.

I already "upgraded" months ago. Been running Windows 7 RC 64bit. It's blazing fast and I'm quite shocked at how stable it is, and this isn't even the real deal yet!

Fastest, most reliable version of windows I've ever had by far. Highly recommended, specially for those of you running a Core i7.

No time soon.

Both home and work PCs are on Windows XP, and am not planning to refresh either for at least another year or so. At that time I will evaluate the PCs that work gives to us (usually a choice between a high end ThinkPad and a high end Macbook) and I'll go from there.

If I go with a PC, I imagine we'll have W7 SP1 or SP2 by then.

Probably in the future, to run it on my Macbook using Bootcamp. I need to be cross platform, so I prefer things this way. If there is a special offer that makes the Ultimate version affordable, then I may buy it earlier than planned and use it on my desktop computer (which I intend to sell, or at least leave behind when I move).

I've been running Win 7 since MS released the beta version and later upgraded to RC....I'll probably be buying one next year when RC expires.

I've been running Win 7 for about 2 months now, and I love it! I have it dual boot, as not everything is compatible with my computer at the moment, but nearly everything is. The only reason why I have XP still is because I just want to make sure I'm fully loaded to go once the drivers are updated for Win 7, and then I'll make the switch.

I got the 32 bit version for $19.99.  Silly

And it's ultra-quick. Much better than Vista, for sure. Only thing that annoys me is the new icon system...I ended up changing it to something more like Vista within the first day of having it.

Also, if you run Windows Live Messenger, you'll have to make sure to change it's compatibility mode to work well with the Windows 7 taskbar design.

How did you find the cheap price?

I've been running Vista and given all the hardship I've gone through I don't think I should have to pay $200 (Microsoft's upgrade price) for Windows 7.

I am waiting for the dust to settle before I move to Windows 7.
Microsoft has been leaving a lot off the table (microsoft money and a few other beads and trinkets) that came included with XP Pro that will not be with Windows 7. While not a show stopper it will make me have to transfer to other alternatives instead of "free" home accounting.

I have a few friends who have moved to Mac's and are extremely happy with performance and not having to run massive resource eating norton or other anti-virus programs. I just remember that when XP hit the market that microsoft was proclaiming that it was so safe that you did not need anti-virus, well that lasted about a week.

I was, now I am not so sure, they had a critique in the local paper saying anyone who had XP would not see too much difference. Anyone with Vista would be wasting money. I also read that it had issues with Norton Security. I thought I would now wait to see what happens when it gets into widespread use.

Speaking of universities, interestingly, as I stated in a previous thread, the UNM IT department will be upgrading to Vista in the Spring 2010 semester despite the fact that Windows 7 will already be available. The UNM IT department says the reason is because they have been testing Vista and now they are ready for system-wide installation, and have yet to test Windows 7. I'm guessing also UNM has already paid for the volume licenses for Vista quite a while ago. There is already a row of computers at the UNM LoboLab that have been upgraded to Vista.

I'm still on Win 2000Pro, but only use it for 3 small apps that aren't available (yet) for the Mac.

I used to go through VirtualPC on the G4/G5 Macs and now use Parallels for the 13" MacBook Pro. I even have an old 98 version (from VirtualPC) that I could install for the hell of it,

As for WIndows 7, I plan on seeing if a friend who works at MS can get me legitimate copies and I'll install them to test the old apps - especially the one old medical app I use for my autopap.

Mostly, however, I'll be watching Apple to see if they release a new iMac this week. My old one was zapped by a power company contractor and the insurance check for the new one has been burning a hole in my pocket.  Smile

I think, if you are using XP, upgrading to 7 is optional. However, if you are using Vista, upgrading is highly recommended.

I want to whip my HD clean and do a reinstall of XP Pro as my laptop is getting awfully sluggish. I've contemplated Win7 and the upgrade adviser says my laptop will run it. I just need to see if there is anywhere I can get it with an institutional discount, as I am staff at a CC.

Only potential issue I would have is with driver availability for my laser printer. Which would be an almost non-issue if it had drivers for OS X, since it is my GF who uses it primarily now.

Keep in mind that when you upgrade from XP to 7, the installer must perform a clean install rather than an in-place upgrade install. So perhaps reinstalling XP is not necessary in your case.

I have two computers here. One is an iMac (my pride and joy), the other is a Dell Vostro 1500, which after 2 years of Vista Ultimate and a dying 160GB hard drive, I stuck an extra 2GB ram in, 500GB hard drive and using the free copy of Windows 7 professional I got from university did a major upgrade.
To say that there's a small difference between vista and 7 would be an understatement. Windows 7 is what vista should have been.
Could not imagine going back, or even running Windows XP now.

(Im also using the 64 bit version, and have had no driver issues)

I will upgrade or do a new install after they work out the initial kinks and problems that are sure to crop up. So maybe sometime in 2010 I will pony up the money and upgrade to Windows 7 Professional (I would like to avoid driver issues).

I bought a Dell Inspiron last month as I needed to upgrade my old computer, but I have a little buyer's remorse, having just upgraded to the iPhone 3GS.

I will be getting W7 free, as part of the deal. My system has 8 MB of memory, so hopefully Dell will send me the 64-bit version of W7.

Speaking of 64-bit: I bought a Netgear router which supported Vista, but it wasn't until I got it home that I realized it didn't support the 64-bit version of Vista! Can anyone recommend a wireless router that will support 64-bit? Or should I wait a while?

I have Windows 7 Ultimate, trust me it is worth it. My computer came with Vista, and the difference between the two is leaps and bounds. For those with Vista for better performance better handling of resources, just name some of the basic benefits 7 is worth it.

Routers (especially wireless) neither care, nor can even tell, whether the operating system or hardware you are running are 64-bit!

By it's very nature a router is simply a network device, and in the case of consumer devices usually with a small built in webserver, and communicates with your hardware using TCP/IP packets, which contain no information about your 32/64-bit nature of your processor or host operating system.

RE: Do You Plan On Upgrading To Windows 7?

Thu Oct 22, 2009 6:30 pm

Right now, Windows 7 Professional 64 bit is downloading in the background for only $29.99 since I had my .edu email address. While downloading, it popped up saying I could also download Office Ultimate for only $59.99. Will probably do that next.

Finished downloading that last night, and just installed it a few hours ago. Used windows easy transfer to get most of everything back to how it was. Piece of cake.
