From what I know of it thus far, Windows 7 is basically an enchanced version of Vista. Vista was like a pre-released Windows 7. Its supposed to have most of the bugs worked out that still exist in Vista.

This is all what I've heard, and may not be fact. However I've ran Vista x64 since it was released, and I have yet to have problems on any machines I run it on.

IMO: I think windows 7 vs windows vista is kind of like Windows 98se vs windows 98.

I heard that they completely stripped the Windows kernel and built Windows 7 ground up. I somehow doubt it though.
post #8 of 16
yep windows 7 is just Vista and new versions of inbuilt software like paint etc and some UI Changes to them programs and the operating system, that's about it really

in my experience i have had a few driver related issues (windows 7 not working properly with vista drivers) had to keep reinstalling things like network card to make it work
would stop after a few days

i really like windows 7 but ill keep on using a stable operating system (vista) until the product reaches final and the issues are ironed out

Windows 7 is using the same Kernal as Vista so they can keep most applications / drivers working properly with the operating system

so stick to Vista for now and get windows 7 when its released
but don't judge windows 7 until it reaches final product
remember its still beta

From what I have seen they also have a change in the interface somewhat. All aplications have the tab form like Office 2007 and the task bar has a new way of showing windows as icons alone.
