The 2001st post — to seven or not to seven

30 Oct

I spent yesterday morning at Sirdan’s helping out with some minor issues following his upgrading his Windows for Mac from Vista to Windows 7. Sirdan, without whom my Acer wouldn’t exist, offered to buy me Windows 7. I, of course, managed to royally screw Vista, as you may recall, and am now running on XP’s latest incarnation. My computer is singing like a bird as a result, using between 20 and 30% of the available RAM and a CPU usage normally at 0-1%. Not to mention how little, comparatively, of my hard disks — there are two — are devoted to the operating system.

So even though I have downloaded the necessary transfer software I knocked back the offer for now. What about you? Have you upgraded? What do you think of the process and the result? CNet has some ideas.

Time for a poll.

    I recently ditched Vista and Windows all together and bought a MacBook Pro 13″. A little in the pricey side but it’s a solid, reliable and simple machine. I feel confident with it and with some Mac-only novelling software, Scrivener, am all set I think and am glad I made the jump away from Windows.
