About to go to Windows 7 -- Arrgh!


Dave...
 

I may be soon migrating (disassociating?) to Windows 7 on my work machine as
it's time for a new laptop. Do any of you feel it incumbent to stop me
before I do something regretful? I do have the option of having my new
laptop fitted with XP Pro, 32-bit. Henceforth my request for your sage
advice, everyone.

Hi,
I've been using 7 for almost a year and don't really notice many differences between it and Vista. I really like it aside from a few things I wish I could find out how to do. And, this is said from the lady that came into Windows from Unix kicking and screaming. LOL I think you'd be OK with 7 unless you use a lot of old programs that aren't compatible with it. I've only found one that I couldn't find a good replacement yet for.
Good luck and email me privately if you need or want any help.

XP Pro will be more familiar, if your job will let you use it instead.
Some jobs, particularly work-at-home jobs, won't allow Windows 7 at all, so I'm surprised your job is suggesting you go that treacherous route.
I don't love 7, XP was just fine.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both. I prefer XP, but mainly because I'm a big Total Recorder user, and XP lets me keep Jaws out of whatever I'm recording, and 7 does not. I'm also more use to XP, but they're not as different as you might think. I tried 7 for a couple weeks and had little trouble getting use to it. My main concern with XP is whether I'll be able to find drivers for newer hardware.Where are you getting this laptop? I can't find anyone offering XP on a new machine.

The thing to be concerned about with XP isn't from an accessibility
standpoint, but the fact Microsoft won't actually support it in 3 years, and
there's no guarantee Freedom Scientific will either. So, you'd just be
upgrading the OS at that time anyway. There's no real major obsticles to
Windows 7 with JAWS, and most of the major programs, even a few older
versions of those programs, will work on 7. Case in point, this reply is
being written on a Windows 7 laptop running Office 2003 and JAWS 12. Your
only problem is going to be older hardware, but since you're getting a new
laptop anyway, I wouldn't much worry about that.

well you better move to 7 64 bit I think, if you do not have vista,is a bit
of a jump,but if windows 8 is maybe out next year,a friend thinks it will
only be 64 bit and ,I prefer my old xp laptop but am writing this from
windows 7 using jaws 12. xp will have little support by then Dorothy. yt

Dave,
Since I switched to windows 7 about a year ago, I have had no regrets. I
think it is much easier to navigate and find things with the new interface;
though many things are very similar to XP. The only other advice I have is
that if you use a Braille display not made by FS, you should get the 32 bit
version of windows 7 to make sure the display works.

I've used Windows 7 on my notebook for about a year and a half. I love it
and have no problems. I don't even have many of the problems others have
said that they do. I am using the 64-bit version. I'm using IE9 with no

Dave,

Dorothy is confusing Karen's obviously accidental posting with Londa's post.
I suggest we all let this error go, as well as Karen's. Lots of people
accidentally click reply to the list when they don't intend to post.

and don't forget that there are my helpful notes (loads of them) off my grab bag site: (address/link under my name)
there are some audio training files on blind cool tech:
www.blindcooltech.com

and also some superb ones on the blind-geek-zone website:


and this from Microsoft itself:
List, here is the direct link to the Microsoft web site for the article to help get you oriented to windows 7 entitled
"Accessibility-transitioning to windows 7".
It is 20 pages long, has excellent descriptions and includes a very usable
set of tables with short cut keys that we all need to know and use if we
cannot access the mouse.

Have fun.

I may be soon migrating (disassociating?) to Windows 7 on my work machine as
it's time for a new laptop. Do any of you feel it incumbent to stop me
before I do something regretful? I do have the option of having my new
laptop fitted with XP Pro, 32-bit. Henceforth my request for your sage
advice, everyone.
