Windows 7 Draws Praise, Putdowns

Written by Daniel

i do like it better than Vista. I don't think that is a difficult task though.

Very stable and faster in games. Folding is another story.

More intuitive than Vista could ever wish to be. Plus some cool stuff thrown in.

Please save your money Chris! While I appreciate your friendship and a it's a very generous offer, I could not bring myself to use it! It's simply a matter of principle with me...MS is Evil and I can't use it when I have any choice that's not...":O}

Hey don't quote me. I am very fickle and I could wake up hating W7 tomorrow. For that fact, my mother-in-law too.
