As some of you know I purchased a new laptop a couple of weeks ago. It's awesome, I'm loving it.
It has Vista Premium 64bit. This is my first experience with Vista and again, I'm loving it.
Along with my purchase was a free upgrade to Windows 7 Premium 64 bit. I've sent in my information and received my confirmation email that it will
ship in October, when the official release takes place.
I'm so torn. I'm liking Vista, however upon reading about 7 and watching a few vids of it in action, it looks very cool and I'm excited to try it.
I'm also aware of and afraid of the horror stories that sometimes happen when changing OS'.
I don't know what to do.
One thought I had was to just take the Windows 7 and put it on my desktop pc. It's a Dell XPS 410, 3gb mem, 250gb hd, Nvidia graphics, decent sound
card, etc. Oh, but I'm running XP Home Media Center, SP3.
This rig runs great, with some help from a couple of really good friends.
However, I was told that I probably can't just use my windows upgrade on the XPS rig. So, that's out.
I'm still torn on upgrading to 7 on my new laptop. I'm a big scardy cat when it comes to PC's and working on them.
I guess if I choose t upgrade and don't like it, or something goes wrong, I can always use my restore discs and go back to Vista.
So, whats you're experiences with Windows 7 thus far and how hard / easy was the installation?
