This weekend - I installed Windows 7 Pro RTM Final onto a basic "office" workstation and was stunned to see that ALL of my drivers
were installed straight away as part of the OS install.
In the past - XP and Vista always pulled me down a path of having to install at least a half dozen specific driver
for all hardware pieces - but with 7 - I was good to go.
So what's the thinking? Do I really need the latest Intel chipset software? Is the 185.xx nVidia driver installed by 7 any worse than running the latest bloated pointless installer from the nVidia site? How about DirectX - in the past - I would pull down the latest End User Runtime and install that before my video drivers. Can't even find a Direct X installer for 7 right now...
So - what's everyone else doing?
Appreciate any comments.
