Ok,... So what's the word? Good? Bad? Fair?

I want to try it, but have been a bit reluctant. If it really improves on Vista 64-bit, then it will be worth it to me. I just updated to SP2. My biggest complaint with Vista is not the logon time, but he shutdown time. It takes my system 2-3 minutes to shutdown.
I found a download for it on ebay at $70... supposedly with a "genuine" retail upgrade license.

Of course at this price I have to question if it is legal. I emailed the seller, but have not heard back from him yet, not that I will get the truth anyway, but figured I would ask.
Hmmm... to buy for $29.99 you are supposed to be a student, which I ain't. I do not mind paying $70, but I want to make sure it is legal. The seller never responded to my email questions. The ole saying, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." keep resounding in my head. :whistling:
Yeah... but if he won't respond to my initial questions I am sure he won't give me a serial number. However, that is a good thing to ask for with some of the others that are low priced.
I couldn't be happier than what I am with W7 64 thus far. Leaps of mountains better than Vista. Then again I went from 4GB to 8GB of RAM as well as a pair of SSD drives all at the same time. I have to contribute much of what I like to W7 though. A definite thumbs up... :T
I think Vista was the beta for W7. I absolutely love it. We are moving all of our computers at our office to W7 Pro (with SSD's as well :bigsmile: ).
