    They used Windows XP SP3 64bit for the test.
    Serious testing is serious.

    With same programs i installed on Windows XP and installed on Windows 7... I get a faster booting speed on Windows 7. XD There's one aspect that is already faster than XP, i'm sure if people do a full benchmark there will be many more aspects that it either matches XP or beats XP

    I believe it. On my laptop that had WinXP MCE SP3 ( :p ) just prior to my install of Windows 7...Win7 runs soooo much faster. It is incredibly noticeable. Opening programs. Closing programs. Starting Windows. Shutting down. Clicking the Start button. Opening the Control Panel. ...everything is faster for me in Windows 7, most things are almost instant. To put it quite bluntly, Windows 7 is awesome... It is like night and day...it is that noticeable :)

    Believe it...
    On modern hardware, Windows 7 will run faster than Windows XP.
    But if you're the kind of person to buy a Netbook expecting it to run Windows Vista with Aero and play Crysis, then you'd be the one saying 'NUH UH! Windows XP is faster!!".

    Either they typo'd and meant SP2.. or they have Windows XP (32bit) SP3 running on a 64bit processor.
