apart from a glitch in installing via UPDATE (had an incompatable driver
which had to be uninstalled first) and a little bit of slow (by Windows 7 standards) boot times for the first 2 or 3 boots it's fine. (This is until the indexing etc sorts itself out). Once it "steadies down" it's fine.
A TV application that didn't even work on build 7077 worked fine and there's now the option to set a VISTA SP2 compatability mode option when installing drivers
This seems to make a few more programs work although what SP2 compatability does that that SP1 or even basic VISTA compatability did I haven't a clue -- but that's the "magic" of Windows.
Incidentally don't take the WEI as "Gospel". I'm very suspicious of these type of "Performance tests". On one machine I've got a DUO T7250 processor giving as nearly as good rating on the CPU test as a QUAD Q9400 on a decent MOBO.
I don't need this type of test to tell me which machine IS faster by far -- no contest.
If things like the MOBO, chipset, memory speed etc are taken into account when running a "CPU" test then this test should be flagged as an "Overall" system test.
I'd really like to know what the WEI actually does and what the results really mean.
A CPU test IMO should simply be like the BHP (Brake Horse Power for the more mechanically challenged) of a car engine . How that engine performs when installed in different cars or different configurations is another test completely and should again IMO be labelled clearly as to exactly what is being tested.
