Jatin, you should add an option for "all of the above" :D


Windows 7 has me more excited... Even more so than Vista did. I voted for the Ribbon UI (Windows Scenic). However, the superbar, faster startup, longer battery life, and its low system requirements all have me excited for its release. I cant wait to try this out on my new Eee PC, and my desktop.

The ribbon UI, I think, is something that MS has going for them. Nobody else has it, and quite honestly, it is easier to use than your average, run of the mill, drop down menu. Everyone criticizes MS for not having any originality... Well here you go. Here is something that belongs solely to them, and no one else can copy it without having that same criticism. The ribbon cleans up the UI while at the same time makes the OS easier and faster to use, as I don't have to page through the drop down menus anymore.


It shouldn't be an obstacle. While it may take some time getting used to it, it'll be easier in the long run and shouldn't take much time tackling the learning curve.

Yeah I second all of the above except Ribbon UI.

I just wish they could still have a built-in option to hide/show old menu bar. I am not a good mouse user eh.

Too bad i never installed/tried Windows 7 b4 (still no have time) so i can't judge it anymore but seems i love all of the new features, especially Ribbon UI (for me it's very good, like Office 2007).

Thx alot to WinMatrix Forum for many great reviews/threads about Windows 7 so i can know more about the latest Windows OS even without installing it at all :lol: to our friends here such as Jatin, endrit10, Vishal Gupta, M Sudoku, Frylock86, Secured Tim, fediaFedia (I love the VS) and so others that i can't mention all as i love all your threads/post, very informative and useful, once again thx alot guys!

Low System Requirements! :yes:
All those features, and you can run it on 512 MB RAM after disabling superfetch and indexing. I'm using the pre-beta version and it feels lighter than Vista.

Can't wait for the final version!

Apple are always sweating seeing as to how many people actually use OSX compared to windows.

And every Windows has been better than its OSX counterpart.

I have yet to see a good OSX.
I honestly mean that.

I voted for low system requirements. I could run Vista on my specs decently so I think I could run Win 7 final better, which makes me very excited.

I was almost gonna vote for Superbar
