    Windows 7

    Hey guys,
    I was thinking about getting windows 7 and getting rid of vista. I am a college student so I heard it was only $29.99. Does anyone know if windows 7 is better than vista? Also how hard is it to switch, as in am I going to lose all my itunes music and files when I switch? Any other info would be appreciated. Thanks

    Vista is OK. I have problems running certain programs, I'm interested in the upgrade too.

    do it. Its so much better the vista. I can also get it for you for free, my college has some contract thing with some company that gives college student stuff for free, you just have to download it. Lemme know if you want to DL it and I can PM you my account stuff.

    Windows 7 is a much better than Vista. I've been running windows 7 for six-months or so now. I have a Microsoft Developer's License and I have been Beta testing it since it becameavailable to us.

    The front end is very similiar to Vista, but the backend is much more stable. It's also a lot more third party application friendly than vista is.

    Upgrading should be a piece of cake, but like was mentioned, make sure you back up before you upgrade. If you need help with anything let me know.

    I think if you bought Vista, they should GIVE you a free upgrade just to apologize for ratcheting your hard drive 24x7, and requiring massive upgrades just to run.

    ...and send me a $20 while I'm asking.
