Number 7 —- Windows 7

I had been using XP since I can remem­ber, and up until a lit­tle more than a year ago I switched to Vista, with my (out­dat­ed) hard­ware I found that Vista made my PC expe­ri­ence much more enjoy­able and faster (so it seemed).  Then about a cou­ple of months ago I got Win­dows 7 and tried it out.  It moved all my music and movie files and per­son­al set­ting into the new­er ver­sion with­out a prob­lem, which was cool.  But I then began to have some prob­lems with my online gam­ing, BIG PROBLEM.  So I tried for about a week to tweak set­ting and change things, but I could not stop hav­ing lag spikes though steam servers I was play­ing on Con­di­tion Zero.  But with Source I didn’t have a prob­lem, but being that MOC’s serv­er on CZ is one of my favorites and I could not let them go yet.  So, u guessed it, I had to down­grade back to Vista.  And as you can imag­ine there are no easy down­grades.  So I had to back up all my files, do the down­grade, install all my favorite pro­grams again, install files and get the updates, aka Pain in da Ass.  But, besides not being able to sup­port my gam­ing on an out­dat­ed game, the expe­ri­ence I did have just using the OS was sweet.  It looks bet­ter, func­tions bet­ter, boots up faster, and is eas­i­er to use.  So pos­si­bly after I decide to out­grow my CZ habit I’ll do the upgrade for good and enjoy every minute of Microsoft’s new and improved OS.
