In Reply to: vista to Windows 7 by zaifu
I went from vista home basic to win 7 home premium (via download) and it was the easiest install of windows I have ever encountered. and I've installed everything but 3.1, which came pre-installed on an AST machine (remember them?)
Just smooth as silk.
If there's any advantage to a clean install, I haven't seen it. When I booted up win 7 for the first time, everything was there, exactly as I had seen it earlier that night in vista. I'm already seeing that win 7 seems to use less hard memory. And, I gotta admit, since I didn't have Aero in vista basic, I'm really loving the look and feel of it now.
One other feature that hasn't been mentioned much, or enough. That's the problem-solving; i.e., I had an explorer crash tonight (I was trying to open too many video files too quickly, I think), and the solutions box came up and.......explorer restarted.
I agree with a lot of the critics who say that MS really seems to have gotten this right.
