Windows 7 from Vista

Recommended Posts

if it ain't broke... why fix it?

 

Agreed,

 

I did a little research and the boot time is a lot shorter than vista and 7s performance is a lot better. I guess i'm looking to get out of Vista.

From my read, Win7 is basically an enhanced version of Vista. Microsoft collected a lot of data on Vista, and make improvement on Vista to come out with Win 7.

 

Pretty much like Window 2000 to Window XP.

 

So my take is that each individual will have to decide if the improvement is worth the money and efforts.

Assuming Win7 becomes the next standard (like XP) I'll eventually upgrade all the computers to Win7. I did not upgrade any to Vista and glad now that I didn't.

 

I typically just get new computers when upgrading the OS. So once Win7 passes the tests (maybe even wait till service pack 1) then I'll look at doing the upgrades.

Im assuming the performance will be better with windows 7 if you have vista on your trading desktop. Is anyone upgrading? I have vista on my laptop and im thinking about upgrading.

I wouldn't go out and buy it for my current system (running vista), but I would be completely content with getting Win7 on a new PC.

I'm running windows 7. Hated Vista. W7 is a great improvement in both speed and less annoyance. Your old firewall does not work with W7 and there are no new ones that I have found, that do so am using W7 native firewall so far.

Comodo Firewall/Internet Security apparently works with Windows 7, though Comodo does not officially support Windows 7 yet.

Windows7 is not a Vista upgrade. Win7 fast as XP and way faster than Vista.

 

I used Vista for couple of years since it was in Beta... until Win7 RC1 half a year ago and release a month ago.

 

And I can tell from my personal experience. Win7 is lot faster than Vista. Only stubborn and stupid may want to keep his trading machine (and generally speaking any machine - as Win7 same good looking as Vista but faster) under Vista...

 

Not meant to be rude. Just operating logical facts...

If you're on Vista, definitely upgrade, Windows 7 is miles ahead. I use it now on all 'new' machines (not the main trading/testing one yet). It is very fast, installs updates without requiring reboots (huge improvement for a trading machine), supports lots of hardware out of the box and is generally pleasant all round - the antithesis of Vista.

 

If you're on XP, wait til the masses get Windows 7 and see what issues crop up in the first 3 to 6.

There is no question. If you have vista you should go to W7. You WILL like it.

 

Hell, I still run xp on all my machines and I liked it ... even the betas.

 

If you have XP and like it then you might not want to move. Changes to the file manager and some of the security stuff will be a pain until you get used to them. Personally I've got a copy of W7 and legit keys but I'm going to keep using XP for my trading simply because I'm so used to it - if I had vista I'd change in a minute.

From what I've read, Win7 will not be offered as an upgrade to XP. I avoided Vista. I'm probably going to upgrade my hardware in a year, so will wait to change OS then.

 

Actually, if TS ever runs on Linux, Microfuzzy is history.

    • Date: 24th July 2024. Market News – Stocks dip as earnings disappoint; Yen strengthens further. Economic Indicators & Central Banks: The market faces pressure entering a seasonally weak period, with potential increased volatility due to the upcoming US presidential election. Asian stocks and US stock futures also fell, impacted by earnings reports from large American firms like Tesla Inc. and Alphabet Inc., which were seen as insufficient to sustain the recent global equity rally. European stock futures declined as investors evaluated the disappointing initial results from the “Magnificent Seven” megacap tech companies. The Yen strengthened for the third consecutive day ahead of next week’s Bank of Japan meeting. Asian & European Open: The S&P500 and Dow slipped -0.16% and -0.14%, respectively, and the NASDAQ slid -0.06%. The VIX was down -1.74% to 14.65 and has eased from the 16.52 level on Friday, the highest since April amid rising political risks and anxieties. Taiwan’s stock market was closed due to Typhoon Gaemi, meaning shares of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. did not trade. Alphabet shares fell after the company indicated that it would take time to see tangible results from its AI investments. Tesla shares dropped as much as 7% following a profit miss and a delay in its Robotaxi event to October. Many of Tesla’s suppliers and electric vehicle peers in Asia also saw declines. Deutsche Bank AG reported its first quarterly loss in 4 years due to a slowdown in trading and a charge related to a legacy issue at its Postbank retail unit. BNP Paribas SA’s profit increased in the second quarter, driven by a surge in equities trading revenue. United Parcel Service Inc. experienced its worst drop ever following a profit miss. Financial Markets Performance: The USDIndex had found its footing, firming to 104.25 versus 103.90 on Monday. The Yen appreciated beyond 155 for the first time since early June as traders anticipated a potential interest rate hike from the BOJ in the coming months, if not at next week’s meeting. According to a Bloomberg survey, around 30% of BOJ watchers expect a rate hike on July 31, but over 90% believe there is a risk of such a move. The NZDUSD dropped at 0.5900 to its lowest level in nearly 3 months as lower bond yields discouraged carry trade investors. Oil fell -1.45% to $77.26, though managed to edge up from the $76.40 session low. It is a 4th straight decline from $82.85 Wednesday and the weakest since mid-June. Most of week’s selling was on technicals after penetrating 50- and 100-day MA. Gold is up to $2418 per ounce. It was at an all-time closing peak of $2469.08 on July 16 amid expectations for Fed rate cuts, US political risks, and the drop in the US Dollar. Of note, India lowered its import duty on gold to 6% from 15% which should support jewelry manufacturing. India is next only to China in terms of consumer demand.
