Windows 7 is not better than Vista!?

That’s the message published recently in this article written by Randall C. Kennedy. I have to confess that I have not analyzed deeply his article but I’m sure that he has ran some benchmarks and tests to say what he said on that article. And I have to confess that at this point it just confuses me. Is he running the same W7 that I installed yesterday on my old 900 MHz Celeron M Samsung Q1? Because his results are far away from my experiences in the short period of time that I was using W7 on my machine Yesterday. It was a short time but enough for me to notice the difference in a machine that was used by me with Vista as my main machine for more than a Year.

I have not ran any tests or benchmarks yet because I wanted to fix first my drivers issues. But so far I can feel the difference. W7 responds a lot faster than Vista and if there is anything that is worrying me is that I see another “Drivers catastrophe” coming with this new release. I was expecting to see full compatibility between Vista and W7 drivers and apparently that’s not going to be the case.

At this moment I have one thing clear in my mind. The version of W7 that I have installed in my UMPC is what I want to have on it. No XP, No Vista but W7. At least that version is performing in my UMPC like a combination of the good things of XP and Vista. It’s not perfect but having fixed some of the worse performance issues gives me a lot of hope.
