Windows 7 Reviews

Used to like it...

about Windows 7 · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

I used to like Windows but after some time using it, I'm starting to hate it because

1)cannot completely remove Internet Explorer,Windows Media Player,Paint,etc which takes some space in my small hard drive

2)too many maintenance and apps needed to optimize Windows 7

3)a pain to find driver after clean install

In my opinion,Ubuntu is better than Windows 7 (never tried Mac yet)

Not perfect

about Windows 7 and Windows 10, Windows 8, Ubuntu · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

I prefer windows 7 to windows 8/10 because:
1.My graphic driver (AMD 7670M) is not fully compatible with windows 8/10 (I tried 100 different drivers from AMD/Windows Update, No difference)
2.Low boot speed compared to my hardware on 8/10
3.Low performance on Virtual Machine on 8/10
4.Incompatible hardware drivers (like GPU, USB port, Wireless, Bluetooth, Ethernet port) on 8/10
5.Smoother UI and easier to use on 7. I don't like metro style too much
6.High CPU usage on 8/10 so weak battery and overheating CPU and GPU

I like Ubuntu. I have Ubuntu on my laptop and 80% of time i'm using Ubuntu. because:
1.Smoother UI and much lighter than win7
2.Less driver problems compared to all windows versions
3.Application installation is so easy on Ubuntu
I can't delete windows and use Ubuntu always because:
1.In my country, Most (maybe all) apps are not supported on Ubuntu
2.I'm C# developer. So i need to install VisualStudio or any other app on Windows
3.Much easier to find specific softwares

C# now works on linux with .net core , still you'll need to port previous apps to .net core first which you should do anyway I think

NewEgg - Vurt Der Furk??

about Windows 7 · · Helpful Not helpful

Newegg is a market place, not a vendor. It appears you are purchasing products and warranties from Newegg, but when the products are misrepresented (IE getting a Home version of Windows VS WINDOws Pro on your Laptop), they claim they did not sell it, and go as far as blocking your review calling out false advertising. When you purchase a extended warranty. It is a replacement warranty good for one replacement credit for the purchse price of your misrepresented junk. It refunds the list price of the junk when purchased, not shipping, handling or the price of the plan, which expires once you use it. Again this is through a third party. And Newegg gives you no indication of who warrantied the product or where to file a claim unless you call and ask for it. Expect the same nasty "not our problem attitude" when you call to get this information. Once you do file a claim expect to spend several weeks of being promised a credit in 2-3 day,another 5-7 days,another 8-10 days. The time gets longer every time they miss a deadline. I am currently in the 8-10 day cycle, I am confident on day 11 I will be told another 10 to 15 days. The warranty company (AIG) blames Newegg, Newegg blames AIG, If you put both companies on a conference call they blame the company who sold the computer. Don't bother asking for a manger, they will just put you on hold for 10 minutes and come back with the same answer.

Tip for consumers: Buy from TigerDirect. Shipping costs are highter, but a least they take ownership when there is a problem with quick management response

Best operating system ever

about Windows 7 · · Helpful Not helpful

It's faster than Vista
It does support 64-bit (a lot better than XP did)
It feels a lot more comfortable and easy to use than Windows 8/10.
There's no need to explain why it's better than Ubuntu and other linux distros, right?

Beautiful, fast, secure (well, it was a few years ago) and it just works. I love it!

Not so good

Although Windows 7 has a good UI, but it's buggy and commercial. I think Ubuntu is much better.

I love Aero Snap

about Windows 7 · · Helpful Not helpful

I love Aero Snap (it's especially fantastic with two monitors). Just pull down on your browser's taskbar, and woosh! The window is no longer maximized. Holy crap! It gets even better if you're using a modern browser, which allows you to drag-and-drop individual tabs. Combine this with Aero Snap, and pretty soon you're flipping windows all over the place. Wooooooooooo! Want to see your desktop? No problem, just drag that maximized window out of the way. Sick of your stupid desktop? Drag the window back up. Maybe you want to see two windows at once-- no problem. Just flick one window to the left of your screen, and one to the right. Screw keyboard shortcuts, you have a MOUSE! With Aero Snap in Windows 7, window management is simply super special awesome.

where do I find this Aero Snap bit? is it an addon? got Win7 on my netbook but never seen it..or is it not included in the starter edition perhaps?

Aero Snap should automatically be turned on. Drag a window to the right or left edges of the screen, and it should automatically snap to take up half the screen. I've never used Windows 7 Starter, but I can't imagine that Microsoft would omit such a major feature.

So our company finally made the switch to Windows 7 and all I has to say is that this must be the ugliest product ever made.
