Is Windows 7 for kids??

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Chucky Chease, Jun 28, 2009.

  1. Well, downloded Windows 7 64 bit, burned the ISO, and then installed it in
    its own partition, rebooted, and made sure I got all the available upgrades.

    As I ran it, I didn't see any difference between it and Vista not to mention
    that it reminded me of an OS for kids. Perhaps when my grandkids reach 6
    years of age, I'll buy them Windows 7 as a present.

    If you guys like security and power computing, try Ubuntu Linux 9.04. You'd
    be surprised how far it evolved since its first days

  2. If I can find the link again I will post it here. The link compared the
    boot time of Win 7 and Ubuntu. Win 7 booted in 1:00 minute. Ubuntu
    booted in 1:09 minutes.

    Perhaps you should stick with your cheesy pizzas! They're definitely
    for kids!

    And the test was "bootscreen to FireFox", which is obviously flawed.
    Why not make it "bootscreen to IE8"?


    Besides, the Linux guys keep telling us that they never reboot anyway.

    Hi, Chucky.

    Don't underestimate today's grandkids! Many are more computer-literate than
    some Grandpas.

    My 6-year-old grandson, Charlie, has been running Vista Ultimate x64 for a
    couple of years and has been enjoying Win7 x64 betas since October. He
    loved the beta fish on the Win7 Desktop - until he changed to a steam
    locomotive. ;<)

    Fantastic! That is exactly the point the troll was making. Windows IS for
    children :)
