Don’t just take my word for it, many of your favorite tech sites are recommending you move to Win7. I’ve been using the pre-release of Win7 for months now and I fully support and recommend it to my friends and family members. Here is but one example of an article enumerating the reasons you should move to the Win7 OS.
“Landing in stores October, Windows 7 is sparking a surprisingly heated debate (in our forums, at least) on whether or not upgrading from XP is a good idea. If you’re in the “nay” camp, we’re going to lay out seven reasons why you should consider switching your stance to “yay.”
When scanning our list, we politely encourage you to ask yourself, “Do I really want to continue using an eight-year-old operating system?” Followed by “Don’t I deserve better?” Because no matter how comfortable you are with XP, you do deserve an OS that’s both newer and better, and Windows 7 will deliver. Not convinced? Then read on.” Wired.com
It only took me 2 days to get addicted to Windows 7. I upgraded my desktop from Vista 64 last week with no problems. After 2 days (a record for me) I realized I had to have it on my Thinkpad as well. Since I was running XP, that meant a clean install. After finding the page with the beta Thinkpad drivers, I finished the install on a spare drive and was really hooked. Great job!
