I've rocked bloated boats here with comments in Chatbox about WindHype 7 not being better than XP, nor any different to Blista Vista SP2. It seems vital members at iNetHouse agree with me also, so I decided to post this out of XP PROfessional courtesy, for '7' Fanpersons to have their say, and show us all just how a clean install of 7 (plus apps) is somehow 'better' than a clean install of XP (plus same apps), on a standard consumer computer PC (OEM, or DIY custom retail box) that has 32 and 64 bit capability (Intel-EM64T or AMDx64 family of processor), 2 gigs ram to stay under x86 limitations, and the onboard hardware (or added devices) all marketed as "XP and Vista/7 compatible"
Some motherboards produced deliberately to bottleneck XPs performance for reasons I won't get into here (and you should be able guess why anyway) are not relevant to this post. High performance gaming is also not relevant because that relates to specialist video and sound card drivers written by third party vendors to be Windows compatible. I am talking XP SP2 (or SP3) versus '7', straight off the install discs on identical hardware, without consideration of which IE browser version is standard.
