Windows 8 Pro - Upgrade License & SA - Open Gov

"Like it!"

Strengths: I tried Vista when it came out and hated it. Windows 7 is more comparable to XP - in terms that it is self-explanatory and easy to use yet still has really cool features. I love the 'snipping tool' - instead of having to do a 'print screen' and open it up in an editing program to crop, then copy and paste - you can just simply drag the rectangle and hit 'copy' - it's so easy and convenient! The other new feature that i love is that windows snapping feature where you drag the window to the top corner and it will automatically resize it to half the screen so you can have two windows on one screen (cheaper way than having multiple monitors)
Weaknesses: None

"Newest windows desktop OS"

Strengths: Install was simple. No hitches or problems with updates either. Am running as a virtual machine in a new Mac Pro using VMWare Fusion v3.1 and seems quite stable. Like the new print dialog on the side of the document. Interface seems a bit more simple than XP.
Weaknesses: Seems like 64 bit programs (like I.E.) should be the default and not have 2 different versions showing up on the app list. Seems fluid but just a little sluggish (could be the fact it's running virtual).
Comments: Purchased to run with VMWare Fusion

"An amazing operating system"

Strengths: Great short cuts, easy access to my entire computer, great wallpaper designs, and improved audio/video functions.
Weaknesses: Nothing that I can find so far
Comments: awesome improvement from the prior version.

"recommended upgrade"

Strengths: fast, stable, good for networks (more intuitive than win XP); easy installation
Weaknesses: some of the tool bar functions in Win XP do not work in Win 7 (like Copernic Search Bar). Some software will not work with 64 bit (like trend micro RUBotted)
Comments: So far I like this a lot better than windows XP, but there is a small learning curve. There are helpful microsoft forums that one can search on Google to automate simple tasks (e.g., "how do I make a volume control shortcut on my desk?). Seems more stable - much more stable than XP.

"Great OS"

"Problem Free"

Strengths: 32 and 64 bit disks included Is not locked to 1 pc like OEM version Includes Remote Desktop Connection
Weaknesses: Microsoft's retail product pricing is difficult to bear
Comments: I've made several purchases from SoftwareMedia and each has been problem free. All products, including this one, were shipped and delivered quickly, and perhaps most importantly, they were all genuine products without activation issues. I will definitely purchase from SoftwareMedia again as I need to.

"Big improvement to Vista!"
