Over the last few months, I have been transitioning our production computers over to various Windows 7 configurations. Currently we have two desktop production computers, both running 64 bit versions of Windows 7. One is running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and the other is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Both of these systems had Windows XP on them, but with the security issues of running an “old” OS, we decided to upgrade everything running Windows XP. I “upgraded” both desktop computers to 4GB of RAM, prior to doing a clean install of Windows 7.
In addition to the two desktop production computers, we also have two Windows 7 laptops, one running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and the other laptop running the 32bit version. Both run Windows 7 with 2GB of RAM on board very smoothly, and I think better than they did on Windows XP. All of the computers were “upgraded” doing a clean install.
I upgraded our Acer netbook from Windows XP Home to Easy Peasy today, so that we don’t have to worry about Windows XP security issues on it anymore.
