4.0 out of 5 stars Better than vista, 24 Oct 2009
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, Upgrade Edition for XP or Vista users (PC DVD), 1 User (CD-ROM)
Vista was a good operating system but had problems that could cripple ones head! This new Windows 7 version is a nice polished cleaner product that doesn't hog your system's memory and its directx 11 is a nice bonus as it enhances the graphics of your system. The install is an easy process, and a internet connection is needed to recieve any updates from microsoft. I did a upgrade install, which is an install from vista buissness to windows 7 proffessional, though a clean install option is given. Be sure to backup your system before you install(you need a external hard drive or lots of DVDs as backup takes up huge space) and the install software will check if your system can even install windows 7(which you should check before buying) and after a few minutes of checking any software conflicts, which a few came up (like itunes), the install process br=egan. This takes a couple of hours which you are not prompted to do anything so just leave it be as it installs. just make sure your system is not sceduled to go into standby or anything. After install i checked out the features which were great! stuff like the taskbar and windows media player looked cool and the system seemed faster doing things. Another thing new is the media center which is beyond cool and takes time seting up but its worth it. invest in a tv tuner and you reap its benefits.
overall great features like windows peek and shaking are alright if not heartstopping! windows flip 3D is still there along with other vista stuff. Great product!

Can you remember which edition of Vista you were using that allowed you to upgrade rather than clean install?
