Windows 7 Home Premium
Write a Review
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)
Strengths: So easy to use
Weaknesses: have not come across one yet
Comments: the best operating system yet
"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.
Strengths: Ease of setup, everything works. Stable, fast, no problems.
Weaknesses: doesn't remember window size too well..... need 3rd party software to manage
Comments: I was skeptical about upgrading, but now, I would not go back to XP (even though it was good), for anything. I didn't use Vista, but I heard too many bad things about it.
"Big improvement to Vista!"
Strengths: Faster and not as intrusive
Few driver issues
Weaknesses: Could be less resource intensive
Comments: big improvement in terms of utility and overall looks
"much easier to work with"
Strengths: Easy to install and work with. Seems more secure than previous versions.
Weaknesses: I'm not aware of any so far.
"Great deal, fast shipping, best OS"
Strengths: best OS - was ready to go Apple and give up on MS
Weaknesses: good for just 1 computer use
Comments: I like it
Strengths: Installed on Mac Parallels very easily.
Working great so for.
Easy to use and navigate.
Weaknesses: A bit to many help boxes pop up before going to the area you want to use.
Comments: Love the program and especially the service from Softwaremedia.com. Before sell, after sell, and even the 1 return which was my fault went very smooth.
"Quick starting operating system"
Strengths: One of the quickest startups I have ever used, nice gadgets to add to your desktops and themes to personalize your computer. Great for entertainment and everyday use.
Weaknesses: Don’t see any weakness to this wonderful operating system.
Comments: I prefer this operating system over Windows XP with I had before with my Toshiba computer, now I have a Acer and the Windows 7 operating system is good for school and entertainment.
"Fantastic Operating System"
Strengths: I am a Windows XP fan, but switching to Window 7 Home Premium Upgrade was one of the best choices I had when it comes to switching my operating system. What I like the most in this upgrade is the snipping tool. I usually depend on the “Print Screen” tool when it comes to copying web pages in the internet. I also loved the improved audio and video functions, and of course, the exceptionally cool new wall paper designs that allow me to personalize my PC the way I want too.
Weaknesses: The challenge in this new program is not due to the program itself but its user. Since I am a former Window XP user and was using it for almost 5 years or more, changing to a more “techie” operating system somehow gave me a hard time adjusting to the new operating system format. Nonetheless, upgrading in this OS system was a very good decision.
