I really like Windows 7 RC. No muss, no fuss, no drama and most important, no BSOD. Not once.
But I use Windows 7 for dual monitor setups, watching movies and anything that involves lots of graphics.

I haven't had a BSOD for years on windows XP, but then I don't keep adding/removing software or hardware of unknown origin, or just to see if it works..
--well OK sometimes with Microsoft updates/patches..

And here I thought that was what Linux was for..

Just as a business case; We can't really call Vista a failure, disappointing, yes, but not necessarily a failure..

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

My laptop has the dreaded Intel 965 chipset. I downloaded the Intel driver from the Mint Package Manager.
Mint 64 still doesn't play well with Google Earth and some streaming websites.
When faced with dual monitors, ie my 19" external monitor and the laptop's 15.4" monitor, Mint barely stays stable. Any use of more than one browser window and Mint will freeze up or just plain crash. No such problems when using Windows 7.

I understand that the issue with Intel chipsets will be addressed in October? So I will wait patiently.

Fred


i think will be much better. (English is not my native lang)
like others say, the system will have all the vulnerabilities form all windows but i think will be more stable and fast.
