I have been using this at work and at home. It is very stable and works quite fast. However, I have hated dealing with UAC, and have disabled it on all machines I use. I have also noticed that it uses a lot of memory.
Read reviews on Windows 8 and it looks like they screwed up in a number of areas. I'm building a computer which will be primarily used for Adobe CS6 and Lightroom 4 and I know Windows 7 works fine. Also, Microsoft has been following a simple pattern of creating a good OS followed by a bad one. The most recent looks like this: XP (Good), Vista (Sucks), 7 (Good), 8 (So far, looks pretty bad). I'll wait for Windows 9 before I'll consider upgrading to a new OS.
It was faster to install than Windows XP. At least it is better than WINDOWS 8.
Man that is a stupid way to write software. Some of the most inportrant features ARE hidden. Now I have to find software to control the AUDIO since I need to change MIC and MIX-OUT quickly in Paltalk and adjust the VOLUME level. And a lot more BEEF too.
I was considering upgrading to windows 8, but seeing videos of it's interface I stuck with upgrading to windows 7 professional. I've had the premium edition for quite awhile and it's never disappointed me.
This is the OS to have if you are a gamer. Do not even bother looking at Windows 8. Microsoft got it right with Windows 7. There was simply no need to even release Windows 8. Being a computer tech, I am now dealing with angry clients who have decided to "upgrade" to Windows 8. Do yourself a favor, and don't fall into the trap. Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit is the only OS to use if you want to enjoy your computing experience. It is fast, stable, reliable, and perfect for business and gaming use. I give it 5 stars.
