You can change the view to several different choices. I'm sure you can find one that you can get used to.

An awful lot of the complaints in this thread are simply peoples initial reaction to something new and different. Many people are resistant to change. It was the same when XP first came on the scene. I bet if many of you just give it a few weeks more of using 7, you will adapt and find that many of the things you initially didn't like actually represent improvements. It just takes some getting used to. Give it a chance and come back in a month and update your opinions. I bet if people would do this, a significant number of people will eventually acknowledge that they have gotten used to whatever it is they are complaining about now and have changed their initial opinion.

I only have one real issue with 7, and it relates to my monitor. If I shut the monitor off, and turn it back on, my monitor resets to 1024x768 resolution (default is 1440x900), and instead of my monitor's model being listed, it says "Generic non-PnP monitor". Bit of an annoyance having to change my resolution every time I turn on my monitor, but I figured out a workaround. If I just let the monitor go to sleep, the resolution glitch doesn't appear, so it's not a big deal.

I do not like the Homegroup concept. I like sharing files and folders like I did in Vista.
Other than that, I am quite happy with Win7.

Initial reactions? I just re-read this thread and found many distinguished old geeks telling about something they dislike or find odd or uncomfortable. It is precisely what this thread is all about. Besides, many of posters in this thread has been using different versions of Win7 long enough to know their opinion.

Exchanging opinions and experiences is one of the best ways to learn and increase your knowledge. I would not like to tell posters in this thread "Think first, maybe you get used to it".

I'll just say that I wasn't referring to everyone in this thread. Obviously, many who posted in this thread have been using W7 for a long time. I wasn't talking about them. I did qualify that my comments concerned those who are new to W7. My impression is that there are at least some persons posting in this thread who are relatively new to W7. I tried to make it clear in my post that I was referring to such people. Apparently I did not succeed.

Harpua, sorry if I misquoted you. Like you, I also was only telling my opinion. My intent was / never is to offend other forum users. Hope you didn`t find my post offending.

no problems here - i treated myself to the whole valve pack through steam.

so far i've downloaded l4d, tf2 and portal - they run smooth and lovely at 60fps (triple buffered vsync) at 1920x1080 resolution.

maybe a graphics driver issue?

I could get used to hitting myself in the head with a hammer, it doesnt mean its good; I would change it given the choice.

How come, so many Windows users wanted "downgrade" from Vista to XP? Users, which really work with the OS, not users who have no clue about Windows Explorer at all. So many users, that MS had to admit! And now I read MS will stop Vista 2012. And I cannot see much difference in between Vista's and W7's Windows Explorer. Is MS shoveling their own grave?
