Listen guys n gals..Win 7 is a peice of software that is pretty compatable with almost anything you like to install. I used the RC1 ...which went tits up some weeks back as the trial ran out....however, I have since loaded an RTM version and I have to report that it is 1) quick to boot 2) quick to install. 3 ) has yet to refuse me any of my legacy software i.e. nero (any version) MS Office 2007 and 2010. old and new printers etc etc. There have been a couple of issues but a search on the web always reveals a result and all I can say is "STOP THE GODDAMN MOANING, AND START USING THE BRAINS YOU WERE ISSUED WITH AT BIRTH" I am no fan of Gates and Co, but Win 7 is, for me at least, the best bit of kit they have yet produced.
Dont install its not worth it beacuse u will be UNABLE to restore it back to factory settings after and there is alot of issues with it atm im stuck with windows 7 because when I reboot on my laptop HP I press F11 it wont go to the System Restore so basicly onces u will hate it u are going to be unable to change it back to your original windows
as windows 7 is just taking off people are confused to weather or not the programs they use will work in the new windows operating system, well good news is at hand Because over the past few months software developers have been updating most of there current software packages making around 96% of all software brought out over the past few years that worked with windows xp, vista now works with windows 7. so theres no need to panic if a program you have doesn't work yet, by the end of the month it will if you download the updates for it.
All I want to know is where in the world did you guys learn English? I can't believe that everybody's first language is other than English, yet I see gems like "weather or not" - what kind of weather are you talking about? Rain, snow? Didn't you mean "whether"? And, it's "compatible" not "compatable", and "incompatible", not "uncompatible". You know who I'm talking about.
I apologize right off the bat, if this is not your mother's tongue, but if it is, you have no excuse - run your freakin' post through a spell checker, you lazy bum.

I am running Win 7 RC 64 bit build 7100. I used TuneUp 2009 with Vista 64 bit but it will not work with Win 7. I use Glary Utilities with Win 7. The softwre that came with my HP printer works with Vista but will not install with Win 7. But I have had no problems printing or scanning with Win 7. Raxco's PerfectDisk 10, J. River Media Center 14 both work fine with 7. Norton IS 2009, Webroot's Spysweeper, and Sunbelt Counterspy all work with Win 7.
The only problems so far have been TuneUp Utillities 2009 and the HP printer software
I have been using Windows 7 RC for some time and I am happy to report that it is stable, it is also more compatible than Vista. In fact I am playing games that wouldn't even run in XP on my computer for the first time in years. The Compatibility option now seems to work, now thats a plus.
There are a couple of problems however.
1) Most games that fail are the fault of the copy protection rather than the game, easy fixed with No-CD patch. Some game companies and copy protection providers are willing to help. However, companies like Atari and Codemasters have decided they have your money so why should they worry.
2) Some apps like tune-up and AV programs can be problematic as they are designed to work in harmony with the OS. Symantec have always been notoriously slow in sorting this sort of problem out. Kaspersky and Zone Alarm are both Windows 7 compatible. As far as I know the new Tuneup is also compatible. But I have many apps that work fine.
What you waiting for Windows 7 is a massive step forward and is the way Vista should have been in the first place. Personally I think M$ should give every Vista owner a free copy of Windows 7 as compensation, but who care what I think, lol.

Look you can install windows 7 and easily take it right back to windows xp or vista. This is how. First before you turn off your computer place the factory restoring CD that came with your computer in the D:\\ drive ok. And than turn it off. Turn the computer back on and press F2 . Now the forth sentence down on "FIRST BOOT DEVICE" input CDROM. Press F10 followed by Enter and reboot your computer and let windows take care of the rest. Its that simple but it took quite a while to figure out mind you. But here you go. And yes windows 7 is not all its cracked up to be I recommend XP any day. Or make your life easy and get a MAC, and you Bootcamp to run windows XP on the side for you window lovers out there and have the best of both worlds in one computer.
