    Easy

    I never had a Windows on a PC that is so easy to install like Windows 7 is.
    And I think it works a bit better with FSX than Vista does. For FS9 I think it doesn't matter anyway.

    I love Windows 7 Beta. FSX runs at least 25% faster than Vista on the same machine. I hope they release the final version before the beta runs out - I don't want to go back to Vista!

    Up to now it runs without any problems and I use the 64 Bit version.
    With Vista 32 and 64 there are ever from time to time crashes you never know why.

    Smile

    I've got Win 7 64 bit installed on a independent drive. It was the most easy OS install I've ever experienced.

    I've really not noticed an FPS increase in FS9 or FSX, although both load extremely faster.

    I could not get FSC TQ drivers to work on FSX but does work with FS9..... strange

    Also could not get GoFlight driver to work with either FS9 or FSX.

    Hi Matt

    I agree that FSX loads much faster under Windows 7 than either Vista or XP.

    Indeed with a SSD Drive it is impressive to say the least as Windows 7 has been highly optimised for SSD drives.

    Since I just looked at the last post, I noticed my post above that. I thought I posted it somewhere..... I did eventually get FSC TQ and the GoFlight drivers to work.

    Re: Easy

    Until now, it works without problems and I use 64-bit version. Vista 32 and 64 are still crashes from time to time you never know why.
