Default Is there a good reason to get 7, I only got Vista for DX10...

Is there something In it that once I use it I wont be able to live without?

I couldnt really give a toss about most OS stuff since I'm either looking at the internet or playing games.

You'd be better off with windows 7 and sell Vista. Windows 7 is faster, uses less resources and basically fixes everything about Vista.

Meh, Will it make my downloads faster or make Crysis faster than XP or make web pages open quicker?

I have plenty of hardware resources for an OS.

Whens the next windows set for release? I might skip this one.


Or will Microsoft stop supporting Vista as a properly working Vista will give people less reasons to switch to 7?

I don't think I'll be selling Vista unless I sell my PC

It certainly won't make Crysis faster than XP, but it certainly improves on Vista. And that's DX 10. If you like the candy, it plays better on 7 than Vista.

Still a lot of bugs in 7, though. But runs like Vista on steroids.

Will 7 bring back multimonitor support lost with Vista, That would be a major selling point for me.

huh?

I've used dual displays on both. 7 even had native support for it and ran both my monitors without having my video card driver installed.

W7 > Vista IMO. Even though it's only Vista with a SP "feel", I still think it's the better of the two OS's. As for DX, don't buy it for DX11. We all know that DX10 was a joke

I think everyone is well aware of your hatred for vista mailman2, to bad 99.9 percent of what you have to say about it is exagerated beyond all reality.
