I had Windows XP for the longest time and even stayed on it for quite a while after Windows 7 was released because I liked it.
I finally moved to Windows 7 on Friday, November 25, 2011 and have been happily enjoying it since. However, I'm glad I didn't choose Windows Vista, because from what I heard, Windows 7 fixed a lot of bugs it had that it shouldn't have had.
Not the best but not too bad either. It's just a laptop so I wasn't expecting great numbers, ha. I don't really game on my laptop so it's sufficient for me. I've considered popping an SSD in to speed things up, but I also store a lot of things on here and use it for school so the idea of carting around an external isn't too appealing.
If I win the lottery in the next few years I might just buy an ultrabook & build a PC.
I've switched to Linux, but the last time I checked when I was using Windows
To get that 9.9 system.... It wasn't worth it. At least not on Windows. The drivers for the hardware on Windows were problematic, so the system seemed unstable. It was only on Linux did things improve.
