I am thrilled to find this place as I just completed a transition from an 8 year old box running XP to a new box running Windows 7 pro, and it has been an interesting process to say the least. That old XP box ran 24/7 for 8 years and was only turned off when we would go on vacation a couple of times per year. I recall it crashing only two times in those 8 years, I hope I get the same reliability with 7.
I would like to change the default transparent look of the screens if possible. If I want to see what is behind the current window I'll minimize it, but I'd rather not have that transparent look.
