Windows 7 Faster then light weight application!? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Plot:
    Windows Seven runs massively better then other Windows versions and mostly it is running faster then most installed applications.

    Story:
    I have been arguing in the past about Windows and had allot problems with Windows Vista. After some deeply discussions with friends about Windows 7 I told them I will take the bullet and give Windows 7 a try.

    After deploying Windows on my computer, first thing I noticed all drivers were installed and working properly according to Windows. So I was surprisingly confused about Windows 7 and his support for drivers. After trying few things with my tools for driver updating (Asus Driver Updater etc.) it was saying the system was running stable. And I headed on to the video card drivers installed the 64bit driver from Nvidia.com and run the hardware compability test after reboot.

    After installing Steam/Last.FM scrobbler I noticed Windows was running faster then these two applications.

    Then I was loading series of applications such as Grabbit (Usenet) and FTDv8.5 I noticed again that Windows runs faster then the application...
    Even when massively loading applications in to Windows and pushing up my hardware (non-overclocked) it even ran smoothly.

    Even with iTunes I noticed great difference from XP/Vista,

    I have approximately 15.000/16.000 songs, and it is asking for troubles when importing them ALL in your library at once!
    After I did it for fun, it just continued smoothly and even going to other windows it did not froze or crashed himself for importing my songs.

    Did you guys had such experience yet?

    I'm willing to admit that I may not always be right, but I am never wrong.
