[APG Public List] Windows 7

I have my laptop upgraded to Windows 7 (from Vista which I disliked
intensely) and I like it. I have been preparing to replace my older desktop
with a Windows 7 64 bit machine and will be doing so in a couple of weeks.
So far it seems that most programs will work with Win7 64 bit if they are
current versions. It also seems that all my peripherals (2 printers and 2
scanners) will work just fine although I needed to get an updated software
version for one of the scanners. 


The Microsoft website has an apparently excellent listing of compatibility
for programs and peripherals at:

I am not an expert in Win7 but I bought a laptop with Win7 on it and I am
pleased so far.  I saw a large PC by HP demonstrated in Salt Lake City and
it had a lot of the appearance of Mac software but I knew it was not Mac's

It is pretty much a conclusion that old, old, software of any sorts will
find it difficult to run on Win7.

Sorry, did I say the programs I'm using are the standard gen programs.  Also
things like an older version of photoshop, acrobat, other document/photo
handling software


One reason I'm thinking of Win7 is that I hear it's compatible with video
editing, and lately I've been incorporating video along with photos (onsite
locations related to a client's ancestors)

Have to purchase a new computer, not sure whether to go with Windows 7.  I
asked on a different list but couldn't hang around to see the answers.


Anyone with Win7 installed lately. Any problems with gen or related
programs?  I think what I'm looking at is a 64 bit version, which makes me
nervous because I couldn't get the equivalent in Vista to work with some
programs and had to switch to 32 bit.


If I go Win7 in this new computer, any one using either 32 bit or 64 bit
version?  Recommendations?
