Windows 7 Gaming Performance
Windows 7 the beta! Yep got me one along with most people reading this I'm sure, is it all that? Not sure yet as it's just a beta. Though if you look around the web you'll find many sites touting the superiority of W7 over Vista and even (god forbid I say anything bad about it) XP, I still can't figure out how they do this with a beta, maybe they know something I don't...
Of course I still read all of the Vista bashing and well and it rather ticks me off, there's nothing wrong with Vista at all actually, I've been running it since it came out and I haven't had any problems at all really. Now if I go back to XP, well that was a nightmare when that came out, hardly anything I had worked in terms of hardware, even stuff that was brand new didn't work with XP, but when I installed Vista everything worked fine.
I can remember getting it the day it came out, all excited to run home and install it only to run into more headaches than I care to remember, I hated it honestly, nothing worked right at all.
When I read all of the Vista bashing and how wonderful XP is, it makes me wonder if any of these people actually remember the problems with XP when it came out, the numerous hardware and software incompatibilities that existed with that OS, none of that was there with Vista. Sure I ran into some small issues, but everything worked, every piece of software, every piece of hardware that I used on my XP system I installed on Vista and it worked, and I can't say the same for when I upgraded to XP though, I had to quit using programs, I couldn't use hardware that I recently bought, and it crashed quite often, no such things to report with my upgrade to Vista though.
