Reviews: Windows 7 Utlimate

Before installing Windows 7, a lot of friends commented that. It is faster that Windows Vista and it has a lot of improvement that Windows Vista.

When my first touch to Windows 7, my feeling is “It is a Vista”.

After navigating it, it is a Vista. Not much different !!

For my Vista box, I have done a large amount of performance tuning to it. It includes Network and system tuning.

So, I cannot feel a big improvement when I use Windows 7.

I do not have an exciting feeling to Windows 7 as when I used Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

In Windows 2000 and Windows XP, it showed a lot of improvement for me. E.g. Kerbose, Windows Firewall, Remote Desktop.

In Windows 7, it seems facing bottleneck.

Overall comments:
1. If I can have choice, I will stay with WinXP
2. Win7 is an improved Window Vista. I don’t think it is a new version.
