Remove the need for weekly (24 since 15-02-2010) repair/upgrade/reinstall**, or is this just my bad luck ??
Still, gives me something to do on a wet 'n windy Wednesday.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
 
 

it kinda crashes alot good earth is one that always freezes and stops responding for about 15 seconds other also but off the top of my head i cant pic them out

and i wish a part a vista was in 7 i liked the angled (see what is open) option from the taskbar

and it wont talk to older Os's i have windows 7 desktop and windows Xp desktops 1 as my personal file server windows 98SE and windows 3.11/dos 6.22

windows 7/vista programs should have a thing that windows auto senses and installs if it doesn't auto sense it it should install as xp compatible i use photo shop CS2 which would always crash till i set it to run as XP SP 2 or 3

and i really hate that i have a bunch of hardware that is not garbage even though its still good like SB lives

one thing id like to see windows get is more desktops like Linux has they give you 4 on you task bar

and Microsoft have to get on the ball they need to do 64 bit for all updates not 32 and 64 like windows live i go to stitch photos together to make a panorama and it falls cuz it runs out of memory

ohh and the lack of control over start bar id like to see a Linux type were you can say run at 70% so it shortens the task bar to it doesn't take up whole with of screen

last (i think) but not least windows need to fix CPU sensing org clock 333x8.5 i have it set 400x8.0 and windows says i have 3.4 when i have 3.2

A BAD THING Windows Search. Within an hour of first switching on my new Win 7 PC, I'd downloaded another search program (Locate32) and turned off Windows Search and Indexing never to be seen again .

A JOLLY GOOD THING, WHAT?? Feels like I've spent half my life trying to stop Bloody Outlook from taking over my email accounts (F**k O*f!! Don't want ya!! ).

This was my one major deciding factor in saying a tearful au revoir to faithful ole XP .

Win 7 Pro
 
 

My complaints are few, but they are actually giving me pause today. I used, happily, XP Pro until about six months ago, when I installed Win 7 Pro. I'm impressed with the OS so far, and haven't had too much to complain about, until now.

With XP Pro, I was able to set up multiple languages through the language bar, with no issues. I'm now faced with having to buy a far more expensive OS version to do the same thing I was able to do natively in XP, and frankly I'm now considering my options.

I have a Laptop with the dreaded Vista on it. I need to have multiple language support on that thing, and NEED to rid it of Vista. I'm now considering going BACKWARDS to XP, or even moving on to a MAC, simply due to Microsoft's inexplicable management of language support.

In today's global environment, multiple language support is becoming less and less of a luxury, and more of a necessity. This really has me irritated, and I'm simply not going to pay for Win 7 ultimate for ONLY MUI.

Am I alone in this?

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1
 
 

When I had RC, I had nothing but problems - slow, glitches, incompatibilities, etc. When RTM was released on Technet, I tried 7 again. Its allot better than RC in terms of compatibilities, stability, speed.

Now, my only compliants are related to x64 and legacy x16 programs.
