I'm thinking of switching from Windows 7 Ultimate to a smaller operating system, because it can "improve gaming experience, and overall PC performance". But I have no idea which one to switch to.

So vote on the poll and explain the reason as to why you voted as you did.

MicroXP is the minuscule version of tinyXP so I'd go for micro. But let me warn you that printers will not work on these microscopic version of these operating system unless you download the 1000 drivers for
Xp software. Tiny7 might be also good considering that it still holds the DX11 advantage...

Tiny7 is GREAT for netbooks, but it has severe issues with MANY games, so don't use it for gaming!
It also doesn't feature a search function. And it is x86.
I'd rather go for a Win7 x64 (currently using enterprise).
Windows 7 is not much of a ressource hog, so stay with the retail edition if you don't want to experience any issues.

But for netbooks Tiny7 RULES! I'm using it on my atom-based netbook with 1GB RAM and it works even better than XP did smile.gif

your windows xp wasn't configure or had the right drivers.


Windows XP is faster for gaming because all game are 32 bit applications and win xp delivers better perfomance

http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/window...aming/page3.asp

only reason to use windows 7 is if you have top of the line hardware like 64 bit processors and 2 graphics cards and more than 3 gigs of ram and want to use dirext x 11

less than that makes no sense to use 7

You're joking right? You don't need all that to run W7.

No, my point is that if you have less 3 Gs of ram, a single video card, a not recent cpu you are going to get much better perfomance out of XP

Well naturally XP has lower requirements and thus is likely to feel slightly more responsive, but...
1. 7 runs just fine on computers with 1GB of ram or more, there is no need for 3GB to run 7 fluidly and responsively
2. What does a single video card have to do with performance at all? Are you saying that I should be getting a second 4870 just because I'm running 7? Maybe if the comparison was high end vs low end single card, but single card vs multi card doesn't make a difference
3. Define "not recent" because I have a 5 year old athlon x2 that runs windows 7 beautifully, i wouldn't call that recent. Granted my new i7 does a better job but until I start doing a bunch of tasks (which is independent of which OS your running) they both do just fine.

Well, I used to use MicroXP but I currently use Tiny7 (and to install language packs with it you have to use vistalizator..)

Also I tried TinyXP but it wasn't really that tiny smile.gif

Also I would like to see a 64bit release of Tiny7 but the problem is that it wouldn't fit to a single 700mb cd.

Btw, if you want to enable msstyles with MicroXP use this http://www.mediafire.com/?nm23gjbyjim

Huh? My Printer/Scanner combo worked right out of the box.

I'd stick with a full version, because the odds of finding something that's not working or missing are lower with full versions than with "tiny" versions... or at least I think so ^^;

Some people prefer performance.

No point for any of them. Windows 7 works fine on my netbook with 512mb RAM.


But it could work even better.

I had to install .net framework manually when I used Tiny os'es.. Now I'm with a full Seven install for a few days because It's easier to give this laptop away for people who aren't that computer savvy smile.gif

I have tried Tiny7 before, and it does a run a lot faster than regular Windows 7. But, Windows 7 is quick enough with registry tweaks.

Registry tweaks like what?

I already have those, and they didn't boost anything.

These boosted me a lot more. It's a batch script that disables some services. It was meant for Vista but it works on Seven as well.
