Microsoft's latest OS is barely even two months olds, yet early adopters have given Windows 7 the thumbs up.
We look at why they're happy and any issues they've got.
Windows 7 isn't even two months old yet. Most of the people who will eventually use it haven't gotten around to trying it yet; those that have are still settling in.
And the Windows 7 experience will change rapidly as remaining bugs are squashed, missing drivers arrive, and compatibility glitches are ironed out. Even so, it's not too early to start gauging what real people think of Windows Vista's replacement.
So are Windows users better off today than they were a few weeks ago, back in the Vista era? We decided to ask the our readers.
Starting on November 16, respected Technology blog Technologizer surveyed its readers (and Twitter followers) about their experiences with Windows 7.
The goal: to do a reality check on the mostly favourable initial reviews of the new OS.
The 550+ Windows 7 early adopters who took the survey mostly echo the positive response that the upgrade has received from professional reviewers, pundits, and users of pre-release editions.
A sizable majority say they're extremely satisfied with the OS and rate it as a clear improvement on both the now beloved Windows XP and the widely panned Windows Vista
Crippling installation problems - the bane of every upgrader's existence, and always a legitimate reason to postpone switching OSes were rare.
