Probably you haven't figured that one out yet yourself.

I'll give you a few days to ponder on it.

And yes, negative comments for the soul purpose of being negative bother me.
Actually I have figured it out. There is no need to ponder it.
That being said, I'm not going to share the reason with you.

hmm, I seem to have underestimated you.

Then maybe you have also figured out my question was rhetorical.

Guys

The OP is bringing a knife to a gun fight. We should cut him some slack.

Was he the source of the "show-stopper" nature of that non-bug?

I will note the name for future reference.

7!! even if you take away the eye candy your still left with a GOOD,PRE-RELEASE user friendly OS.. ok i've had 1/2 BSOD's(in of 1 of the 4 builds i've tried), a couple of compatibility issues (mainly with older games), the biggest problem i've had with programs is they're not compatible with aero so it switches to basic while the programs running..(such a hardship). 7 is by no means perfect tho.. It like all officially unreleased software will have its teething problems.. take Acronis true image for example..theres meant to be a problem restoring the win7 image(dunno for sure yet) but its already been stated this will be patched on release of 7, lack of drivers(not that i've had any problems using Xp/Vista's) and so on but these things WILL improve after release day..

Now to XP.. despite being released in october 2001 it is still a good OS(dated but good), and was certainly a milestone for Microsoft.. the quality of xp can be measured by the fact it took MS 6 years to release the next notable OS in Vista (if you can call vista that) in 2007, compared to their previous average of every 2/3 years prior to the release of XP, so well worthy of the praise its been given.. and id be lying if i said i dont still have a disk image backed up.

with all that i've said i still feel that 7 is going to be the next milestone 4 microsoft after XP, with Vista no-more than a stepping stone to 7, just as ME was between 98 and XP..

Actually, no. In the course of researching this anomaly, I found the same language dating back to early June. I tried to find the links just now just to substantiate, but I bailed - too many new references to weed through.

He did post his question, however, after he was in possession of research that indicated it was not a "bug" per se, and certainly not a show-stopper.

With this single incident, I now understand why this forum holds him in such low retard (typo - regard). No additional evidence required. If it smells like sh*t, don't step in it.

Hey, don't be so hasty! You never know, it COULD be shinola. OTOH, why would I want to step on shinola anyway? Oh, well, never mind ...
