Windows 7: The Windows 7 honeymoon is over.

The Windows 7 honeymoon is over.

Quote:
Thanks to the power of hindsight, it’s now quite apparent that Windows Vista was hated by a large proportion of the people who came into contact with the beleaguered OS. In contrast, Windows 7 has been receiving almost endless praise (even before anyone outside of Microsoft was even running the OS). But lately I’ve noticed the tide turning, and the shine is beginning to tarnish on Windows 7’s previously immaculate halo.

I have no desire to go back. Windows 7 it is, for me. Of course, I don't have a laptop or netbook....

There are problems with any OS, that doesnt mean to say that Windows 7 is still the best version they have produced.

weak. why did he even bother to write that. Short synopsis:

"people were really excited and had nothing bad to say." "now people have bad stuff to say." "They are probably looking for problems that aren't there." "I don't know." "Maybe, maybe not." "Who can say." "People like hype." "People like to gripe." "The end."

I agree.
I guess some people can't stand to be out of the limelight to long or need to sell advertising space.

I don't get this...

This shift in attitude towards the OS is easily noticeable. A few weeks ago, positive Windows 7 comments outnumbered negative ones some 20 to one. Now, the ratio is close to one to one.
Where is the proof of that 1:1 ratio? Sounds more like his opinion than a fact. I don't know anyone out of hundreds of Windows 7 users here at my work that dislike it.

Well I'm some one that don't like it.Yes it has some real nice features,but I just bought a new computer with OS7 on it.I also bought a new 22" monitor.The system did not set the resolution for the monitor.I had to do it manually.Not a big issue,but I didn't feel I should have to do that.It continually locks up.It does it so much,I can't put a finger on the problem.Windows Live Mail.I don't like the idea that I'm forced to use it.I was very happy with Outlook Express.I don't like the changes to the desktop folders.Especially picture folders.It seemed to me the old XP system was much easier to use.
Flame me now if you may,but I wanted to say that there is some of us out here that are not totally happy with OS7.
I will stay with it,because I feel I have no choice.It is the future.I'm sure at some point in time I will be more comfortable with it and that time can't come soon enough.

Recommend taking it back to where you bought it and tell them to replace it. New computers shouldn't be locking up out of the box.

I would like to recommend trying out different e-mail clients, I use thunderbird, till you find one you are comfortable with using.

And the picture libraries are just shortcuts to the folders that you are storing images. I believe I saw a tutorial on this forum that explains how to turn those off...
