The snupping is also found in Vista there as well as on 7. Surprizingly a lot of people were never aware of it since they were looking mostly at the then new Aero themes and UAC introduced there.

It doesn't stink entirely when it's predacessor XP still continues to come up with new errors even after SP3! Vista's main problem was one word "bloat" while it stilled out to be a far more stable OS. It was a headache for a lot of gamers however.

at the moment I am erasing a DVD+RW using imgburn. It's icon on the taskbar acts like a progress bar in that the icon is gradually turning green (left to right) as the erase continues. It corresponds exactly to the percentage completed.

Not sure if this is controlled by imgburn or automatically done by W7. Gotta check if other programs also do this.

Burning also does this to the icon.

just double click on an iso and it will ask to burn it. Or insert a blank cd or dvd and one of the autoplay options will be 'burn iso to disk'.
