Operating System

Hey Guys,

Just replaced my hard drive in my other laptop and need an operating system. Now that there are 3 (Vista, XP and 7) out there, which one should I go with and what class (Home, Professional or Ultimate)?

Also where is the best place to pick up software? I have previously used Tigerdirect with no problems.

Linux or Win7 (Hated Windows until this version)

If your just going to be using it for docs and the internet. Win7 all the way. No VISTA by any means. XP if you dont feel like spending money!

Only use Linux if you know what your going to be using it for, else it just a cheap webbrowser station.

I got 7 and i love it... if you get it make sure to atleast get professional or ultimate as there you get a full intergrated WinXP and to be honest ultimate is actually not too much more expensive that is why i got it.

My suggestion, try linux and if you don't like it then get 7. The only thing you would be spending is your time and maybe a CD (Linux is free). I've been working with Linux Mint and Peppermint for a while now and unless you are dead set on a windows box these are great and pretty much work out of the box.

Windows 7 Pro.

Ultimate has useless features.

also has xp mode which isn't bad.

I recommend you Window 7. Window 7 is nice Operating system.Window 7 supports many of the features available in Windows Vista, and also brings in new extra features, but the best part is the improved speed. window 7 is that it give permmission you to use your hardware for something other than bios post watching.Windows 7 uses RAM more effectively and uses less space on the RAM for its GUI features.
