cant see any difference on my pc dont think it's worth the money + some of my software wont work so i was gonna remove it and flog it on and stick with vista

dunno how microshaft can get away with it
especialy seeing i only paid £20 snow lepoard which is much better

The difference is there is NO SUPPORT for other devices, printers, etc !!

Netgear & Canon are two examples of no Win 7 support .....just Google it.

Surely you just re-install vista and that should be it sorted?

what?

i have a 3 year old epson printer Dx8400 plugged in, it installed all drivers itself.
recognised all my different external drives, USB flash memory, 5 year old Kodak Digicam,archos mp3 player, everything I've attached to it.

loads up quicker than my vista or XP partitions (i got 2 hard disks, one partitioned with XP/Vista, one with Win 7)
it works better in general

DO NOT FEED THE TROLL!

Windows 7 found drivers for everything on my laptop..
Even for my 7950go GTX graphics card which is quite amazing as I could not find them anywhere else, not even on dells site!

The retail version CAN be installed on another computer, but it has to be removed from your computer first.

It can of course only be on ONE computer at any one time.

tbh if its the pro or ultimate version, download virtual xp

The vista 64bit drivers worked for me? it does say on their site that they will release some soon
