In Windows 3 it was so nice when you could only have one level of folders, no need to put a folder inside another folder.

Yeah, and what's up with all these colors? Nobody really ever needs more than 16 colors anyway, right?
Hi there
What about pro photography or really high quality colour printing.

Calibrating a decent monitor to get realistic colours on a high quality printer is definitely NOT a trivial job - and I'm sure if you were doing a wedding shoot for clients etc you'd DEFINITELY want more than 16 bit colour on a monitor.

Just visist a Pro photogs studio if you can and you'll probably DIE when you see the very high quality monitors used in these processes.

Cheers

I think he was being sarcastic by mentioning 16 colors (4 bit for the uninformed)...

These are the early days for this thing so we all must exercise a lot of patience.

But, How many "BLUE SCREENS OF DEATH" HAVE YOU HAD?? i HAVE HAD THIS THING FOR TWO MONTHS AS AN upgrade and had nine so far.

I've been running Windows 7 since the official launch in October and I've not had a single blue screen. I also never had a single blue screen in all the years I was running XP.

But, I've also never done an upgrade from one version to another by using an upgrade version. I have always (since Windows 95) done clean installs as I've always been a little bit weary of what could be left behind of the previous version. Never had a problem.

RC has a ton of monitoring software on top of the bugs. I would upgrade to RTM asap.

Not one yet here in a year.

From what we are seeing here, I wouldn't advise an in-place Upgrade for anyone. There seems to be some level of corruption no matter how successful.

If there was ever a special occasion calling for a clean install from boot with formatting, now is it with the greatest OS yet.

+1

Installed beta first time on January. Had one BSOD but that don't count, it was my own stupid mistake (installed old software I knew is not compatible).

At the moment I have Seven on six computers at home and office. Three clean installs, two in-place upgrades from Vista and one from XP "via Vista" (first in-place upgrade to Vista and then directly Vista to Seven).

All working fine. No sleep or hibernate problems, all devices working, not a single problem with connecting to network. All fast and reliable. All Hewlett-Packard, laptops and desktops.

I am sure this has already been said in this very very long thread, but I hate how W7 chooses a video thumbnail from literally the first few seconds of the file. Even Vista was less annoying in this respect. Minor niggle, I know, but had to be said and am quite disappointed to see that you still can't change where the thumbnail capture occurs!

For mkv files, try the Haali Media Splitter and adjust the milliseconds for thumbnail extraction. The option to display thumbnails should be "yes" too.

Defragmentation takes place in the background on a Mac. This defragmentation only works on files under 25 MB. While on Windows, Microsoft attempted to do the same thing but obviously "some" users didn't like that. Fragmentation is unavoidable on any file system.

Now if you are the type of person to be obsessive over defragmentation, there is a whole eco-system dedicated to it, just for Windows!

no one i know bothers to defrag anyway..

i let tune up utilities do it automatically... so i guess the only advantage to the mac is that they officially lEt you install windows and also the 7 hour battery life on the macbook pro 15inch and 8 hour with the 17 inch but 17 inch is to big for a lap top

Don't look now, but your Win7 Disk Defragmenter is scheduled to run by default (if your machine is turned on at 3 am Wednesdays).
