And maybe misses again.
We loaded the Windows 7 Release Candidate on three systems (two desktops and a laptop) and then ran our WorldBench 6 suite. Afterward we compared the results with the WorldBench 6 numbers from the same three systems running Windows Vista. Each PC was slightly faster when running Windows 7, but in no case was the overall improvement greater than 5 percent, our threshold for when a performance change is noticeable to the average user. [More]According to friends still using Vista, it is better than when I dropped out of the Window pain [heh]. But this is not promising for MS.
I can just see the commercials.
