This is probably a good place to also mention again, for anyone wanting to test if their computer is ready for Windows 7, they can run the test program from Microsoft: Clicky

Or if you know a college student, you just need to know their email and have access to the account.

Re: Review Of Windows 7

oh well that is cool - installing it from a flash not the part that you killed two DVD player. Are you on a laptop or PC? Well you posted that a while ago so what do you think - are you surfing Windows 7 - loving it? Big Grin

Re: Review Of Windows 7

Ok I checked it and nothing out of the ordinary. Here is a snap shot (mind you I have quite a few widgets on my desk top & Ultramon is a dual monitor program)

Re: Review Of Windows 7

Whelp, I finally got Win 7 Ultimate installed on my desktop, and first impression is it does seem really nice. It seems basically like a fine tuned and graphically tweaked Vista. Now I'm at the worst part of it that I always hate, re-installing all my crap and restoring alot of my old settings and tweaks. I hate this part, ROFL

I just installed "XP Mode" (aka Virtual PC) and have to reboot now to check it out, see how different it is from VMWare (my fave). I made a complete image of my C: drive on Vista with True Image before I installed Win7, now I want to see if I can run it in a virtual machine exactly like it was when it was installed. It'd make transferring all my schtuff a gazillion times easier. Beg / Praying

I do recommend it to anyone who can run it though.

p.s. A fresh install of Chrome in a fresh install of Win7 = lightning fast. Big Grin

Re: Review Of Windows 7

Yeah that is what I'm in the middle of doing and plan to do this weekend, program installations Sad I agree it sucks but I don't regret doing a fresh install. I didn't have any problems (virus or trojan) but if I'm going to make a jump I want it to be a clean one Smile
