I have Windows Vista and - lucky me - when I had to buy this computer, it was the short period of time when all I could get on a computer was Windows Vista. I HATE how it totally changed the look of XP unnecessarily, MS office is now NOT intuitive, and gave me Windows Mail which sucks. I can't even sync with my Blackberry. However, I've caught on to Office for the most part. I've been advised that Windows 7 is much better and I should upgrade, but I'm reading mixed reviews. I was also told I'd be better off installing a new version of Windows 7, as opposed to just buying the upgrade, for a clean transition. I'd like to get Outlook back (instead of Windows Mail), and keep Internet Explorer because that is what I know, being the novice that I am. I've read it doesn't come with any e-mail. Based on all of your (collectively) expert experience, should I buy Windows 7? Upgrade or full version? Do I buy Windows 7 Professional or Home Premium? Will I need to buy MS Office upgrades ( I currently run 2007)?
Desperate for guidance! Thank you!
