Really? You know, I've heard a *lot* about Win7 being better than Vista,
with one of those improvements being speed, but this is the first I've seen
*any* direct comparison of Win7 to XP. And I have to say I'm very surprised
to hear that it runs faster...Although...What kind of hardware do you have
in that laptop? Probably 64-bit multi-core, I'm guessing, right? I wouldn't
be totally surprised if something like that does runs faster on Win7, but
with hardware like that it still would have been super-fast anyway - like
getting an extra 10 horsepower out of a porche (And if all the car
dealerships stop selling everything except porches...well, they'd still be
porches, period). And I think I heard somewhere that Win7 required a minimum
of 4GB ram (or was that just Vista?). If so, anythng less than that would
certainly make Win7 run vastly slower than XP, if even at all.
