    Win 7 Professional, in the 64 bit mode, is extremely fast. Photo imaging is the main application to be use, and it is a joy working with very large files. I strongly recommend increasing your computers ram to at least 6 gigs. Some of the functions are not as intuitive as I might like, So my learning curve needs to be increased (which takes time, of course). Because my previous OS was XP Prof (32bit) a clean install was required which has caused some problems with re-installing all my applications, even though I had backed up everything. Overall I am very pleased thus far.

    Meh!

    It's Windows, what can I say. I hated to pollute my Mac with it, but work requires it. It installed on VMWare Fusion without any issues. B&H had the best price!

    Still better than Windows 8

    By peteinqueens

    Comments about Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (32- or 64-bit):

    I recently built a new computer and got Windows 7 Pro for it...runs very well and doesn't have all the annoyances of Windows 8. Maybe Windows 9 will be better?

      I received it quickly from B & H in great condition. I am upgrading from Windows XP as with the latest version of Photoshop CS6, I'm limited to 3 gigs of ram. This version also offers, with free upload from Microsoft, XP Mode for running older programs which aren't compatible with Windows 7.

        Comments about Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (32- or 64-bit):

        Having upgraded my desktop computer to today's standard, I found the Win 7 Professional did everything expected for NEWER applications but lacked the ability (even in Virtual XP Mode [very slow]) to run and maintain apps I don't want to give up that are 8 & 16 bit programs. However ... having to give up a great deal of memory was an OK trade off to obtain a FULL INSTALL of 32 bit Win7. Phone converstaions for info were precise and I am 100% satisfied with B&H!

                      I'm not a super technical guy, but overall windows 7 has helped my computer quite a bit (upgraded from xp).

                      Very fast shipping from B&H, I'm looking forward to doing business here again.

                        Win7l is way better than Vista which I have run for 2 plus years at work. I am now giving up XP at home after 6 plus years. Just time to move on.

                        Installed this inside Fusion 4 on Mac Pro machine.

                                Bought this for my son who is refurbishing a computer for an elderly lady in out church. Love this product, Microsoft products have proved reliable to my family over the years.

                                  [...]. My son wanted this operating system to upgrade from Vista as he was going to college. I have previously used Windows XP. This operating system finally lives up to the promises that Microsoft has made over the years and was worth the money. No problems to date whatsoever.

                                    Smooth installation (using 64-bit) and, so far, pretty reliable operation. I have seen a couple "blue screens" and it may not wake up from sleep mode after non-use so I don't leave programs up with unsaved work but, overall, neither of these are frequent enough to be a real concern with all of the thnings that work so well.

                                        It is a pain when you try to install this in a computer with other hardrives. I had to disconnect the others to be able to install on new hardrive. Dont know if it was a Windows or IE8 problem but it kept on BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) and rebooting.
