Re:hey everyone
I'm new here, so I just wanted to say hello, before posting any other topics. As of right now, My profile isn't done, but I can tell you I have been into Computers/Gaming for quite a while. It all started way back in the early 80's(Yes, I'm that old-early 40's) when I was gaming on the Atari system. Never looked back since. I also have an interest in fixing computers, and prefer using windows 2,000 and XP for my operating systems, instead of Vista(which is crappy), and Windows 7(Windows 7 runs on the same engine Vista does). I also Collect Older Computers(I don't have a lot, yet), running 2,000 and XP. Anyway, hope to hear from some people soon.

Hey, and welcome

Are you sure that Windows 7 runs on the Vista engine? I was led to believe Windows 7 was mostly built from the ground up

Welcome to CF!

Atari computers... Those were the times. Lol I still have four of them in my closet somewhere.

And you are right about W7, it is based off vista, but there has been a ton of tweaking. Still, it is a pretty bad OS. I have had nothing but problems since installing it.

Re: hey again
Kage, 7 is an upgraded version of vista. Look at Vista's interface, then look at 7's interface;they are exactly the same

Re: hey everyone
Windows 7 is essentially Vista 2.0. I wish they didn't deem it as a brand new OS and said they built it from the ground up. It's a heavily modified version of Vista.

Welcome to the forum!

I myself have my own collection of retro computing. This would be the shortlist. C64, C128, Apple IIgs, Atari 800XL, Amiga (forgot model), and an Apple IIc. Then there would be some not-so-significant x86 computers.

Re: hey everyone
windows 7 = NT 6.1
vista = NT 6.0

windows 2000 = NT 5.0
windows xp = NT 5.1

windows 7 is to vista as XP is to windows 2000.

(i.e different, in a lot of ways).
