Windows 7: What don't you like about Windows 7?

Windows 7 RTM (My daddy installed it for me)
 
 

Firstly I think that asking a question like 'What don't you like about Windows 7' in a forum based solely on Windows 7 is a big contradiction in terms LOL

Lastly, i'll answer by saying Nothing, i see nothing that I don't like about Windows 7

lol, I had my fair share of BSOD's in the earlier builds. Hell, I've even had a couple with the RTM

I can. Permissions. Or to be more accurate, the lack thereof. It's not particularly permissive. To be fair though, they irked me in Vista too.

Thats the cost of getting a more secure OS...

Let me first start by saying, I love this OS and so does my wife. We are using the RC 7100 and I have yet to have any issues. My only problem is I will keep my XP harddrive around because I have no idea how the home version will run my recording software (of course Ultimate has no issues) I am actually excited about this OS.

My only real gripe is the fact that it will cost me $240 bucks to upgrade two PC's to the Home version and $400 if I want pro. I could almost buy a new PC for that kind of money.

That's not really an OS gripe though, just a general rub the wrong way. I feel the price tag could turn off a lot of people from upgrading.

P.S. Yes I am still running the RC because I have no access to the RTM (before someone says anything )

I can say that i dont like Windows 7 because its not innovative!
Its still using the old t-rex known as NTFS (lol its 15 year OLD! Linux has a much faster ext3 file system!)
And its using the OOOLLDD NTs kernel(and when it was compiled there were no multi-cored processors so its not a native multi-threaded system)

So your comp has about 15% less power on Windows than on a Linux/Mac OS

p.s. Do you know that if they change the kernel todays viruses wouldn have any effect? That means no AV software! And if they would change NTFS there would be no need for a defrag EVER!

And yes, Win7 seems a bit out dated now and hasn't even been released yet.
lol!

Yah windows 7 does seem outdated but I love it as an update from xp, I didn't go to vista because vista was supposed to be horrible. But seven is working fine for me right now, thats all I need, plus I get cool "aero" stuff too!

I just had a bsod today, while shutting down it said "Windows has found an unexpected error and has to shut down". Even though thats what I was already telling it too. Then when I booted it up everything was fine and a message said the same thing basically, that windows had an unexpected error and had to shut down. I was like... ok so it did what I wanted it to do... wheres the error?

I think you are confusing your versions of Windows. Vista and Seven have had a major rewrite of the kernel, a lot of work went into it starting with Vista and extended into Seven. Vista/7 both have native support for multi-processors/cores It has since the first versions of NT. NT was made by ex-developers from multi-processor machines and they incorporated those designs when making Windows NT. Unix didn't get multi-processor/core support until later in its development when multi-processors started to become more common.

Windows NT was multi-treaded from the very beginning, Unix was not it had to be added later. Windows NT is and always has been a real and native multi-threaded system.

They could change the kernel all they want but that won't stop virus/malware unless they removed the ability for applications and process to run. I.e. you couldn't run your applications. Because don't you know?! Malware is an application? Oh wow it even looks like other application processes (Firefox, Games, etc.). Changing the kernel is not going to stop malware because it is an application just like Firefox.

There is no such thing a file system that never fragments. There are ways to mitigate it (Which NTFS does support) but it is a challenge to use those on large files (triple digit MBs +). So Windows Vista/7 run a low priority defragmention in the background to aid in the journaling of small files, for the large files. (Mac OS X only journal files smaller then 25 MB) Btw, journaling is not really defragmention, it only aids a background defragmenting process.

NTFS maybe be old but it is a damn good file system. Its extremely fast (yes it is!), can handle a lot of our future storage needs for the for see able future anyways (16 EiB), and almost every OS can read/write to it. There is a lot more to it, you should take the time to read about its technical side.

Please, pick up the book Windows Internals before you try and make assumptions about the inner workings of Windows. There is also a lot of good information on the Windows Kernel here: http://channel9.msdn.com/tags/Kernel/
