Also, another door is opened for opportunity. Let the competition begin for "what is the best Classic Start Menu" replacement software.

thanks again, nigel, for a balanced and well considered post.

i'm getting tired of reading these attacks against people, purely because they have different tastes and preferences.

i also notice that a few users love this os so much, that they are blind to its faults...it ain't perfect, so stop flaming those who do point out the problems.

I hope my last post doesn't fall under "attack" or "flame".
I did write he is entitled to his opinion.
And the car-radio thing was a joke, and I wrote j/k at the bottom and placed smiley's.

The terms "attacks" and "flames" might be a bit too strong.

I haven't seen that much attacks and flames from pro W7 users,
as I have seen from people against W7.

The thing that puzzles me is that the "what don't you like...?" is now at 66 pages.
The "what do you like...?" stopped at 4.

One would almost think the majority doesn't like Windows 7.

To not add to this misconception, I will unsubscribe from this thread.

The reason the post is so long is because, as culture dictates, it is usually far more fashionable to bitch and moan than it is to jump for joy... I think there will always be those who hate anything Microsoft puts out there. Having worked in IT for years, along side numerous Linux die hards, Mac lovers, and Microsoft fans, there is a running joke that anything that Microsoft puts out there is going to be a turd in a pretty plastic wrapper. Some of this sentiment Microsoft earned, some sprouts from the rebel urge in all of us, some is just popular banter from folks trying to sound smarter than they are...

Regarding all the posts about 7 being a resource hog, or the post I saw that stated 7 uses more resources than Vista.. I beg to differ. I personally installed 7 on an older laptop running with 768 mb of ram, and am having a better experience on the machine than I was with XP.. Same is true for my brother in laws laptop, which we over-hauled with 7 some weeks back. He loves it!! We had over-hauled it with XP probably 3 times in the last 2 years, and it never ran as good as it does now..

Yes, the requirements are higher than they were with xp or 2000. Same is true for Mac, or any other system out there. I cannot load the latest OSx on my G3 mac computer, but I am quite ok with it.. Windows (I mean the whole family spectrum here 2000-win7) does something no other OS can do, it runs on just about anything... meaning, I can slap together parts in my garage that I have laying around, plug it into a monitor and keyboard, and chances are, I can load a version of windows on it, to make a working computer.. This is not true for any other platform... 7 Definitely uses less resources than Vista. Beyond all of the information that has been published on this subject, just watching my system monitors, ram, cpu etc.. makes this absolutely plain..

Also, I personally cannot stand the classic start menu. Always frustrating when I come across a server out there that is configured with it.. To each his own I guess, but I would encourage you to try the search function of the modern start menu religiously over the course of a week.. If you are like me, you will wonder how you ever got by without it..

If thereis nothing wrong, we have lost the fight, now MS can rule, and give us any junk that they want to, and we will keep on filling their coffers.

Think of "bloatware"
Think of having to be slaves to virus hunters
we should want things to get better, as well as prettier

Also to the point... One cannot argue for wanting a slimmer OS, and also argue for the lack of classic tools at the same time.. Just saying..

I personally am one of those who strongly believes it did get better, in so many ways.. I keep finding new things to like, nothing really to dislike. I never shut my machine down, and when I sit down, regardless of the fact that I have about 12 programs open at any given time, my machine is snappy, responsive, and pretty to look upon..

Certainly there are things wrong that need improving.
-I wish copy/paste of large, or large groups of files was smoother...
-I wish explorer would get a dual view button added to it, so you can view the contents of folder side by side in a single window.... hey, there is a nifty idea for aero, drag one window on top of another, perform a little mouse magic, and watch as the two windows bloom into one dual window, sort of like a bubble does when it meets another bubble.. damn I ramble..
-I wish explorer had left a little extra space to right click inside a folder when you want to paste contents there..
-I think virtual drives should come built in.
-Though I love the fact that explorer will now let you edit mp3 tags, would be cool if we had a way to edit for multiple files at the same time... or even the ability to rename multiple files at the same time using customize-able conventions..

Still, 7 is my favorite OS to date, and I have used just about everything else I think. And it has not even hit retail.. I have used it exclusively for 3 months, and had a very hard time complaining..

1 Machine that does it all, and does it all pretty dang well, all things considered.

i just love windows 7 to death! haven't had any problems with it thus far.

except that explorer didn't save my preview pane size, but i fixed that now.

and since i'm on a 64 system, i'm having mad issues finding a suitable mkv video player, as wmp11 is still not quite capable in that field.
