I feel that MS has made a major mistake as follows....
WHY change WHAT 60% of the user bases is used to??
REMOVE what 60% of what users are happy with.

We 115 users will be skipping Windows 7 we are currently staying with XP and VISTA (we as a company have standardised in the "CLASSIC") menu for help and functions every one is trained with and is comfotrable with.

We will be giving Windows 7 a great big miss, and out technician and CEO are currently looking at other options "NON MS"

I read and re-read your post. Then I re-read it once again. Then I remembered who you are and checked from your earlier posts if I had it right. I had.

It seems you are for some reason decided to join the anti-Seven task force. It is of course your right and I am not criticizing you because of that. However, I strongly feel that you should not use pseudo statistics and invented figures in your fight. It's interesting an refreshing to read arguments and counter arguments, why you and other users like or dislike the new Windows. As long as these arguments are true. I've learned a lot during the last months reading this topic; as a Windows Seven advocate it has given me some deeper understanding why and what people dislike in Seven, which understanding I (because of my enthusiasm) otherwise lack. But even my knowledge is limited, I still can tell when something I read here is not true.

Truth is better, no matter what you want to accomplish. Even if those figures were to be true (which they clearly are not) you have to remember that the world around us is changing and developing all the time.

By the way, I'm still waiting your response to my offer for your cost issue.

Has it not occurred to anyone yet that what Libraries does is save your files?

It allows you to store your stuff wherever you want in your system, on any hard disk, any partition.

All you have to do is put your files in a folder somewhere other than the system drive/partition and add that folder to the relevant library, or create a new one.

That way, if your system drive dies, as mine unfortunately did a few days ago, your data is still safe, as it is physically somewhere else.

That alone should be the single most important reason for using the feature.

The Librbary is only a hard link, people!!

PS: I'm waiting for A***e to implement something similar and say they invented the whole concept....

Logged back on to administrator and changed the name to my name in user accounts control panel. This removes almost all the BS when it comes to accessing files and such. The only files that really stay protected are system files and crucial registry keys, which can still be set to you as the owner if you really have to.


As for the search thing it takes a day or two for windows to index all of your files, and if where you are searching is not indexed, it will take a little bit longer
Right on the spot, if everyone could just do that and coupled with a good Anti-Virus then We'd be golden as far as most issues are concerned. But unfortunately not everyone can do that.... +1

Agreed, the library is a welcome and very practical feature of Windows 7. I link my mp3s and videos to it too.

Upon installation, my first task was to create a backup/bootable DVD, which it did, although it took a lot longer than expected. Still, it worked. Then a complete backup onto another hard drive which took even longer. Still. it worked. So, I am happy with that feature that hopefully works.

But unless I cannot find it, or the Help file is wrong, you cannot make a Restore Point. I am really disappointed if this is true. In the past, I always create a RP just before a major change, ie, installing or installing major software, hardware, etc. But a user created RP seems to be missing from Win 7. The help file says win 7 will create RP's as "they" think are needed.

Well, sorry to not have much faith in MS to determine when I believe a RP is a nice safety net. Making Win7 slimmer and faster is great, I love it, but why remove that simple feature?

I must ask, are you still watching black & white TV, or have you moved to the VCR yet? Times change, things get better. Move forward or stay behind!

I'm sorry but I don't get it. I've used Windows XP since 2003 and switching to windows 7 was not a big deal at all.

Why would you rely so heavily on a system being a specific way? If you can't be adaptable and learn new things I have no sympathy for you. It's not like we went from easy to horrifically difficult; it's more like from easy to even easier after you get used to it.

I honestly have not noticed a huge difference; it took me all of 10 minutes to figure out how to navigate and use the Windows 7 interface. What is so complicated about the control panel or the libraries?

Also, what is so difficult about typing like an adult or at least using some type of spell check?
