Windows 7 is what Vista should have been. It's faster and it's a more polished product. I like it.

David, Blyth I'm a computer geek

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
My upgrade choices were Windows 7 or 8/8.1 and for me it was 7 without a doubt because I've used Windows 8 machines and it's terrible IMHO. Windows 7 is not too far of a leap from Vista that I was upgrading from, and the Pro version I bought gave me the networking options I wanted for my home network.
Even though I couldn't upgrade Vista home premium without losing my settings, the actual set up went smoothly without any major problems. The only minor hiccups were driver installations of my motherboard, but a quick visit to the mobo website sorted that out.
Bad points:
Over priced and not clear that I couldn't upgrade Vista home premium without losing all my settings.... This version would only allow me to upgrade Vista Professional without losing my settings.
