Windows 7 tops Vista in early consumer sales by more than 200% —

Looks like Windows 7 is gaining some momentum here. For those of you who don’t know what Windows 7 is, it’s the latest operating system released by Microsoft to replace Vista. Vista has long been known for its problems, such as being slow, taking up too much memory, crashing often, etc. With Windows 7, Microsoft is hoping to fix this problem and bring us back to the good old days of XP, where it was much more stable and less of a memory hog.

My laptop is still running on Vista as of now, but once the holidays are here I’ll be making the switch to Windows 7. I’m planning on a full reinstall from scratch as I heard that it’s better. Hence, I’ll have a lot of important data to backup, as well as different software to install and reconfigure once Windows 7 is up and running. I’ll also probably be taking the chance to put together a dual-boot system, probably with a general Linux distribution like Ubuntu or maybe a pen-test one. I might even look into a hardware upgrade for my wifi card – Intel ones just can’t match up to Atheros.

Are you guys still running on XP/Vista? Or are you a Linux/Mac user?
