Windows 7 64 Bit - go for it!

Likes # 0

I installed W7 64 bit Home Premium over the weekend in place of Vista 32 bit. I was concerned that some of my software and hardware might not work with it so I downloaded the 64 bit version of W7 Enterprise to try it out. I’m pleased to say that there is nothing I have that doesn’t run properly on the 64 bit version. The installation found correct drivers for my motherboard, (onboard sound etc), HP6540 printer and all my games including the complete Tomb Raider series from TR1 to Anniversary run fine with no tweaks needed. I’ve also installed Half Life 2 and Sensible Soccer with no problems. I also use Quicken 98 for my personal finance and it too installed and runs perfectly as well as Lotus SmartSuite ‘97. I decided to go for the 64 bit version for no particular reason, (I have 4 GB of Ram which I know the 64 bit version can fully use), apart from it being the most current version. I appreciate that other people may have different software and hardware configurations but from my personal position, I’m very happy with it.

Get Linux scrap windows mate or at least use virtualbox to install windows as a virtual os
You'll be glad
Take a look at 'windows vs linux' in google images and see why windows keep breaking.

Before anyone complains as I now know this is nasty,
on scouts honour I am sorry and won't mention Linux again in this kind of way.
