Woah pretty much no one recommends it here...Somehow I thought more people would be into it. A little surprised it seems very few have actually tried it for them selves.
I tend not to pay too much attention to the so called professional reviews, seems like they are all in agreement it pretty much sucks. But most opinions of every day people and friends seem to be a little more positive for the most part, except for here.
I'm also on the Propellerheads forum a lot since I use Reason for producing music and seems the people there that have upgraded like it better than 7 and are not going back. I know the usual problems like drivers ect, but from what I gather most software/hardware companies have already addressed these issues.
I have 3 issues with 7 now.
1. I can't stream to my xbox, support thinks it's something to do with my computer being on wifi and old school xbox on wired internet.
2. I have a midi controller that suddenly stopped working due to some strange midi driver problem. Have tried everything short of a reformat which brings me to point 3.
3. I don't have a physical copy of win 7, and sure as shit aint gonna pay the $250 for one. I'm the kind of guy who like to reformat every so often to clean up my junk files and speed my computer back up, also forces me to back up my files. When did computers stop coming with a os disk? Last one I bought was in 01 and it came with an xp disk.
If I do install and and want to go back I guess I easily can with the rescue disks I made.
Maybe it's a long shot but I'm hoping 8 will magically fix those first two problems. Maybe a reformat will fix the midi issue? But it also seems to me 8 is more tightly integrated with xbox stuff.
I know what you all are saying because I also usually don't care about updating my OS but for some reason I have become somewhat obsessed with 8. I guess I like the idea of stuff being more simple, I'm not a power user or anything, just basically use this computer for browsing, producing and watching movies n stuff.
Man, I just don't know.
