Windows 7: Does anyone actually LIKE Windows 7?

As I said Front Page will run in Win7. I just confirmed that with my friend.

You'd want to try installing Front Page in XP Compatibility Mode then if that doesn't work try Win2000 and as a last resort WIn98 mode.

Be sure to Run As Admin and if it doesn't work correctly fully uninstall before trying the next backward Compatibility Mode.

Windows 7 Best

In my opinion, Windows 7 is the best OS Microsoft has ever made; better than XP. Windows 7 has very few problems that I have faced. The next version of Windows, Windows 8, I think will be a complete failure because Microsoft has tried to use Metro on the desktop, which just doesn't work... at all.

What he said.
XP was a very good OS but had it's problems. I don't think I had one problem with Windows 7.

I personally don't understand how the libraries threw so many people off. I've used every O.S. Microsoft has sent out from 98 on and to me at least I had less trouble with 7 than any of them Yes, XP included. I use my machine(s) for my small business and have to keep track of many different things and find it much easier with 7 and its much maligned library system than any of the others. Take 10 minutes to set them up as you want and "Voila" there they are when you need them. (Tax rates/codes for several states,orders and invoices from multiple companies from several countries,fuel receipts and mileage figures, maintenance records for several different vehicles, insurance etc.) I'm also trying to write a book on the history of the American carnival business and enjoy researching the two world wars. I edit videos in my spare time. Could count on one hand how many times I've "lost" something. So I consider myself a "serious" user even if I do play two games on my machine when the mood strikes me. Granted I don't use programs that are 10 to 15 years old, I do try to keep current but 7 has served me extremely well with what I need it to do.

To be perfectly honest, I understand libraries, I know how they work I know what they are.

They still make no sense to me though. I didn't find them to be work or time savers for me.

Fortunately you can completely ignore them if you choose to.

Exactly! Just completely ignore them. That's what I do. There are ways of making them disappear totally, but I just ignore them, that's all.

Scott, re-read Lady Fitzgerald's posts.

There are users out there that maybe, just may not be as proficient as you and I are with using computers.

Everyone has levels of proficiency that allow us to enjoy our daily routines.
Sometimes we excel and rise above those levels.
Sometimes we do not.

You may know more than I do about these machines and how they work, maybe I know more than you.

Before passing judgment or criticizing someone, try to remember the Native American expression, "Walk a mile in their moccasins".....

Quote:
Walk a mile in my moccasins, follow my tracks.
Hear the the shriek of the eagle, as dawn gently cracks.
Lift your hands up in worship, for all you receive.
For all the Great Spirit asks, is that we believe.
Believe in the wisdom He teaches in life.
Believe in the power of laughter and strife.
Believe in the strength of lessons well learned.
that we pass to our children as each season turns.
Believe most of all that we’re never alone.
In this thing we call life, as our journey leads home.

I wasn't trying to be condescending or trying to pass judgment OR criticize anyone. Was actually making a point about an earlier post that mentioned/said something to the effect of wanting the opinions of "serious users", as if anyone who liked 7 was an idiot. I fully understand that everyone has different levels of knowledge of ... well, everything. Thats the reason we're here isn't it? To help when and where we can. If anyone mistook me I deeply apologize as I didn't mean anything bad.

One of the games these 7haters play in the countless string of similar threads stretching back 3 1/2 years is to bait and taunt us with snide posts and/or headlines like.....well, the one on this thread.

Then we're such scrupulous helpers that we guilt-trip each other for not playing along trying to help someone who only wants to vent.

They get a kick out of the naive Boy/Girl Scouts tripping over each other trying to help them cross from the past, faulting each other for not laying down their jacket in the mud often spread by the OP.

I am holding class tomorrow morning at 10 AM in Room 23. I am going to discuss the "Value of Understanding and Using Libraries". I expect everyone to attend.

You'll notice I only respond to the post by other members. Could care less about the OP at this point. I gave him two links that if he spent any real time on he'd have a full understanding of windows 7 in a week or two. He obviously ignored them because of the direction he took things afterwards.

I'll still chat up the in's and out's of windows with my sevenforum buddies anytime any thread though.
