    Hello! :biggrin:

    I want to ask, which Win7 edition has max performance?
    I only use computer for browsing the web or games, nothing too fancy really, so I am thinking whether:
    • Windows Thin PC
    • Windows 7 Home Basic
    What do you think?

    All editions are more or less equal; only some features differs. If you ask me within the two editions you wrote, I would say to go for Windows 7 Home Basic; but, IMHO Windows 7 Ultimate is a good one and can be permanently activated with DAZ loader.

    BTW, your hardware configuration is also plays an important role for best performance. :tea:

    What if I have the same hardware on different Win7 editions? Which would be faster?
    Win7 Ultimate, AFAIK, has a lot of unneeded features for me and seems like it will slow things down, no? :g:

    If switching between Win 7 editions changes your machines performance significantly, you really need new hardware, like REALLY

    Windows 7 Home Basic seems just right for me! :)
    But I am scared that my performance will drop artificially by Microsoft because I am using a somewhat limited edition. :(
    Just me being paranoid? :confused:

    You're being paranoid and OCD - the edition makes no noticeable performance difference unless your machine is from 1983
