It is, you cant go wrong with Windows 7. I agree, windows vista was probably just there while MS was working on W7... btw I heard MS is working on Windows 8, or whatever they will call it.I must admit that I think Windows 7 is probably the best desktop Windows yet.
Well maybe not vista, but Windows 7 is fast on most, if not better than XP. It dosent really matter if its Vista, xp or 7. It really depends on your hardware but windows 7 is fast, even more faster than xp.. thats why you see people saying vista should have been windows 7. Vista was a failure but not Windows 7We all know that XP uses minimum system requirements, therefor makes your PC faster then the same PC using Wind0ws 7 or Windows Vista, it also takes up less space.
