That's nothing I've only recently got mine and I've been here since November 2008, I don't see any problem having to wait.

JK, look at it as an accomplishment. It is not easy to get to Guru level in such a short time. You deserve bigger congratulations for having to wait

I bought the OS, waited for it to arrive, but when it did, I had second thoughts about installing. What if I have a problem? Do I really want to fix something that is not broken? Well, I almost decided not to install. But, I was already a member of Vista Forum, so I decided to come here and ask. Everyone, was very helpful, they answered all my questions; but two individuals in particular, Zigag and Zrtom, were extremely helpful; answering my many questions. In fact I thought that Zrtom was actually with me while I was installing.

I felt so proud and satisfied after that installation, that I wanted to give others the same feeling and that is why I am here.

But, that being said, at least 50% of the posters are hit and run, but at least 20% do come back and give a thankyou and that makes me feel great.

Another benefit is that the best way to learn is to teach.
That is pretty much what happened to me. I was a member here for a month, gaining info before I installed. XP was working great for me, but I just had the "inkling" to install Win 7. I saw so many problems in the Forum from people after they installed, it almost scared me off. My installation went without a hitch thanks to all of you. Like the rest of you, hopefully I can help a guy like myself that has those jitters before he installs.

I found out about Seven, and more or less dived in. I'm crazy like that. Had no idea if it would hurt my system, but hell. So yeah.

Worked out great, glad I did it.

Started visiting Vistax64 forum, find a lot of good information on Vista and came across a thread that had a link to Seven Forums. Thought I would see what that was about.
Never looked back.
