    Default Windows 7 will outperform Windows Vista & XP

    This is a preview test for beta version so take it with a gain of salt but it looks like Microsoft doing some thing right here.

    Now see the only thing that really matters to me is the support for a wide variety of programs on a 64-bit system. (Like all programs) i know it is going to be difficult to do that because the architecture of a 32-bit and a 64-bit are different, but I want to be able to use my PC to its full potential without having to sacrifice programs. Does anyone have the answer to this question? Or maybe a sit that gives more, hard numbers, rather than new features.

    I agree Shaggy. I talked to a guy that is a Microsoft VIP, vendor or something, he didn't elaborate. He is currently running Win 7 64-bit and says it's great. Only thing is ensuring 3rd party drivers are up to speed and not repeat the Visa problems there.

    So that's encouraging, I think MS is on the right track this time. 64-bit OS will soon become the norm, so Win 7 will probably be the OS that puts it more "mainstream".

    I've been a *nix user for a few years now and have always wished Windows was less of a resource hog. Vista looked like the worst option for an OS. I was running XP for games, but now I've been running a pre-release copy of Windows 7 64bit for a month now and find everything is fine and dandy. All my games, like Fallout 3, run great with max settings. Had an issue with my NVidia card at first with the MS driver but just installed the 64bit Vista driver from NVidia and runs perfect; most Vista drivers work in Windows 7. All 32bit apps run fine on the 64bit OS without any snags too, which surprised me after MS's original failure at 64bit.

    i think there is some bug on transferring a files or something i tested on XP vs W7 with same file worth 3GB of size on IDE 80GB HDD heres

    XP = takes 10-15 minutes
    W7 = takes 15-25 minutes

    i also use UltraISO to make ISO to backup my PS2 game worth 2GB of size

    XP = takes 15-20 minutes
    W7 = takes 25-35 minutes

    tested on Windows 7 32/86 bit , build 7600..

    I think with the actual version, it works rather quickly. I have the "signature edition" right now and it took me about half an hour to transfer my steam apps folder (which was around 32 G from an external hard drive to the main hard drive.

    You know I would like to, however i still feel that they are still WAY overpriced. So until they drop drastically, I'll stick with a regular spinning drive.
