But the moment you start installing security downdates and service pukes, Windows 7 becomes the new VISTA.
WIndows 7, original edition, NO service packs, with absolutely no security downdates: IS a God among OS's- You can't beat it.
One Day after I downdated my very well working Windows 7 to Service Puke 1:
Memory Leaks worse than Vista before the service pack.
Removal of functionality
Search stopped working
I cold go down the list, basically, the whole OS was jagged off. I wiped it and stuck my original Windows 7 in there and tis time I did absolutely NO updates of any kind.
Needless to say, i've never lost my activation like I did a week after SP1, requiring me to get ODIN to unlock it again, and no more Windows Movie Maker which is now a LIVE Pos. And has a useless SQL server/client installed, Bleh.
As bas as Vista was, they did try to fix it, and they did manage to work out a lot of poodoo the OS was doing.
Windows 7 however, this one started out perfect, loses usefulness immediately after installing the Service park.
Then there is this thing where you absolutely CANNOT buy a 32 bit Laptop from DELL. This makes roughly, 900 computers I have wiped that useless 64 but OS and installed the 32 bit.
at this time 64 bit is still way over the heads of laymen compuker users. All of my clients are happier with 32 bit - This is not a country of Web Developers, Computer Animators, and Avid operators: It is a work full of Stupid people like my neighbors, who have all paid me ti give them 32 bit OSes and not I get free sinner several times a week for just have had in the past, deleted 64 bit windows 7 from some computer or other.
To the compuker companies: GIVE US 32 BIT SYSTEMS IF WE WANT THEM! i'M so TIRED OF DELETING 64 BIT SYSTEMS. I would love to have a 32 bit system come in a package with a new puter in it. Needless to say I USE 64 bit, cos I know how to use it, most people buy puters to install WORD and maybe Quicken. Thats IT, 64 bit OSes have not developed enough to be usable for everybody.
