Im using Win7 Ult 64 bit.. It's not bad suppose I can't complain (besides one lil prob I solved now but that's in another thread anyway) but I won't say it's perfect either..
And even if I do like XP it's likely I will keep using this

Nice post! Thoughtful. I've had a very good experience with W7 so far. I'm loving 64bit. The tools that MS provided allowed me to move settings and files for a 3 user system from 32 bit XP Pro to Utimate 64bit with very little trouble. The whole clean install method was well thought out in my opinion. When MS does something right, I have no problem letting them know. Same applies when they mess up. I wish more of *my* customers would do the same. That's how we improve ourselves. Through *honest* feedback.

RedBirdDad;

Please allow me to welcome you also to Windows Seven Forums, and to thank you for making your first post on this thread! Nice Red Bird avatar. Also, your signature is a concept I am very familiar with as a retired diesel technician / mechanic. I would constantly remind the shop foreman that if you don't have time to do it right the first time, you will always find time to do it right the second time. What a waste.

Cheers!

This says it all and equally applies here...

So the suggestion is that 100% of people have issues where in fact it is 2%, and these issues may not be related to the OS in the first place

All the credit for the professionalness of the site and how it is run goes to the site owner, z3r010 (John). The volunteer moderators are awesome as well. Then there is a huge body of experienced computer users from all over the world, all walks of life, and all ages selflessly willing to share their time and knowledge. I am not aware of any support group that offers solutions so quickly to so many. A Forum to be proud of.

Cheers!

Window 7 Libraries

I have read numerous posts from those who say they just "hate" the Windows 7 Library arrangement. While I grant them their right to their opinion, without ridicule, I find myself relying more and more on the positive features of the Library. I am one who fought with the "My Documents" folder ... seemingly forever. It was always more nuisanse than useful me. I could never find what I wanted there because my actual documents were scattered all over the hard drive.

For example, I can store pictures anywhere I want, second internal partition or drive, external drive, or network drive. To view my pictures I only need click "Pictures" on the desktop menu and I can access all of them in one place. If I need to save a backup copy of something to another device, I do not have to sort through my devices and then scroll down through the file system to find the folder I want to save in. I just click the Library and copy and paste the item into the backup folder there. Everything in one place.

Windows 7 has helped me organize my stuff better than ever. I know I could have created the folders, created the shortcuts, and organized them all in the "My Documents" folder ... but I never did. Now, the Library does almost all of the organizing for me. It is true I cannot move folders and files around on the desktop like I used to, but I never did that much anyway. The convenience of being organized is of much greater value than the loss of a so little used feature.

Cheers!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: analogies should be a clarification of your point when necessary, not the basis of your argument.

I can't agree with you more Robert, I love the library feature, A "Grand Central" area that makes it easy to find what I'm looking for.
