I can't see that being true, charging 100 quid for nothing, maybe it has Windows 7 on, and they wanted XP, so they charged 100 quid per PC to put Windows XP on?

Gadgets don't stay updated when hibernating.

I like to have my Stocks show all the time. When I come out of hibernation, my inputed stocks are gone. Then I have to reinstall the Stock Gadget.

The reported size of the Windows directory is not the true size. A standard installation of Ultimate (without pagefile or hibernation) is well under 8 GB. Most of the files are counted twice or more using directory/file scanning because a good portion of the files are hardlinks.

ONLY thing I would suggest is that it have pic resizer built in on R click.
And this has nothing to do with 7 but I wished that WMMaker had a menu and burn feature.
But hey those are easy addons!
I LOVE 7!

I hate the WIndows live suite of products and the concept as a whole. I have 8 PC and every time I reinstall I have to download the products again. They should be released as downloadable content, regardless of whether that negates the term "live".

Also, windows movie live maker - yuk. What a piece of rubbish. Stripped of all useful functions, and can't even load a file from the network. MM2.6 is no better, at least not on x64, it crashes after importing an avi file.

What third party program would you guys recommend for a novice movie maker to import and produce movies to be written as DVDs? Something preferrable with the ability to add chapter breaks

cheers

Yea, tried that. Not working for me... Say I'm downloading something. I usually download to my desktop but sometimes I like to download to a folder on my "E" partition. So I wanted to add both my Desktop and the E:New Downloads links to the Favorites in the download pop up asking where to save the downloads. It's not saving there at all. I use only Firefox 3.5.
Go into Firefox > Tools > Options. On the main tab, check and see if Firefox is set to download files straight to the Downloads folder (I think this is the default on Windows 7). Change it to 'always ask' and the popup asking where you want to download will be back.
Dont know if this is of any value to you - in the user shell folders there is a key for the default download location. You could try that and by default download will go to there??

For the actual production of DVD's from existing clips I use DVDFlick may not have enough editing for your purpose but totally free (Open-source), and it works well for compiling DVDs

The biggest problem I've found thus far is getting Java installed, but I eventually used the offline install, which installed normally.
