Windows 7: build 7127 Vs 7100 - Thoughts so far

I know the advice is to do a clean install of 7127 instead of an upgrade from 7100, but has anyone actually done the upgrade? If so, are there any bad experiences from that?

Asking because I've spent lots of hours customizing my 7100 installation and really don't want to start over again with 7127. I know I'll have to do that with the RTM -- but that's months down the road.

I did an updgrade from 7100 becaue I'm limiting myself to one clean install per month.

No problems so far.

lmfao.... that sounds like some kind of diet.. hahahaha


but yea, so far, after further review, 7127 has cured alot of my "blues". Especially when it comes to correctly and accurately reporting the connection, be it wired or wireless, as compared to the PUBLIC RELEASED windows 7 beta 2..."RC"

not too mention, there wasnt any 2 updates for the IE, or the x86 root security flaw as found for the BETA 2. And i've yet to have the language pack updates as well, just fyi. Tho not sure if they are included or not. I would presume yes, but then again....

I honestly think MS should state a public apology for their carelessness of releasing this build to the general public, and then release an actual RC available to the public.... but oh my... that would definitely let the cat out of the bag wouldnt it.... roll the dice i say MS.... reconciling this issue may speak well on your future reputation.

i've been using 7127 for about a week now. besides the folder.jpg bugfix, one other major thing i've noticed is that my system no longer hangs after signing in from locked state or power saving mode - which it would persistently do at random in both 7077 and 7100.

In 7127 ... I had to disable AVG's resident shield to be able to open a picture in Irfanview in less than 4>5 seconds ???
I didn't have this problem in 7100 ... So far, this is the only difference I've found.

I did an upgrade install from 7100 to 7127 and upgrade went without a hitch. I've done clean installs of every previous build but I just finished installing and setting up 7100 when 7127 came along, so I did my first upgrade. No regrets so far, if you had no problems with 7100 you will probably see some improvements with 7127. I say go for it.

I keep hearing a lot of good things about 7127. Just installed 7100 but am already considering making the jump. But I'm tired of burning DVDs (I have a MacBook Pro, which means EFI; flash drive installation doesn't work so well yet).

ahhh ty, i missed that thread... never ran into that... that goes without saying i dont use the OS that much as of yet for me to see that behavior. But thank you for pointing me to your thread, that was good info. I also wonder if this may have had anything to do with the "bug" of the HG libraries not showing up at times, and needed the fix of either restore to default, or change the optomize this foler for... Very interesting, again thanks.

edit: what I meant by "not showing up" was ... the library itself would show up, but when going into, no contents would be displayed until doing the above "fix"
