5.0 out of 5 stars Windows 7 Ultimate, 28 Jan 2010
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, Full Version (PC DVD) (CD-ROM)
I only decided to buy Windows 7 after hearing so many people saying that it was the best OS since XP. I went for Ultimate as I was replacing a full version of Vista that had caused many problems with problematic drivers and was unstable from day one.

I have to say the look of Windows 7 is very similar to Vista, but the performance is nothing short of amazing. It's far quicker that XP and hasn't even wobbled since I installed it. Ultimate gives several additional options to the personal version and I like the improvements that it offers.

All I can say is, if you are thinking about upgrading, don't hesitate. And if you can afford the slightly higher cost, go for the Ultimate version.

As always Amazon was by far the cheaper option to buy this and I received it the next working day. It was installed and working that afternoon!

I have been told the windows dvd disks are a copy ..
this is upsetting and I have told the seller if it is not official I do not want it delivered , but a refund ..

Not necessarily true. Some sellers are selling dodgy copies. If you're getting it from Amazon, you can bet it's the real McCoy.

OP: personally, I used Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit 99% flawlessly for some time, before considering 7. Once the 'Platform Update' went in, Vista was pretty solid.....
