I have been testing windows 7 beta and I believe that it is a decent operating system outside of a few quirks. I will admit that my vista 64bit boots at an alarming rate with all taskbar items ready to go in comparison to windows 7. Windows 7 software operation is very fast and decently stable in comparison to vista but the main problem that I have with both vista and 7 is that the gaming is horrible. I use OpenGL on a GeForce 8300 and have had no issues in xp but then I upgraded to vista and get flushentitypacket issues. Windows 7 doesn't even give an excuse, it just says that it isn't supported. I don't understand why they would also put a limit on how many programs you can run at once simply because I don't know a single person in the world that runs any less than 3 programs at once. That should be outlawed. We didn't ask for new windows systems that are going to limit what we do with our computers. To be honest, I will never get rid of xp simply because I can do what I want and everything works efficiently. Any thoughts on this?
