I have Crysis here but still haven't installed that one yet on the 64bit retail. As for any driver updates for their products you can use the Microsoft Update Calalog. Microsoft Update Catalog

The main support for their mice and keyboards is seen at http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/windows7/support.mspx

Welcome to the Se7en Forums! Flatlands

I've been running most versions going back to dos and 3.1 and have to say MS finally came up with a "favored" version that's being well received. Once you get familar with 7 a bit you won't think of going backwards by looking back but move forward with a greatly improved Windows!

Still waiting for the statue for the good old VistaUser (like me) without whom all this splendor would be impossible...

I have had really of two issues since the beta first came out. One is resolved with a driver update and the other I have a workaround for. Windows 7 is the best OS I have used from MS. I am very pleased with it. Well done MS. (finally)

With the beta builds and later onto the RCs and now the retail 7 seeing both 32bit and 64bit flavors on with two separate drives I still continue to load on numerous programs, games, 3rd party tools and 7 still shines over previous versions.

With all the startups piled on I end up with a smoother running OS without the problems seen with previous versions! Once things are on 7 the only problems you see are from 3rd party softwares not with Windows itself. 7 is still far more responsive when loaded down.

In fact I'm booted in the one remaining RC install on one drive where the space is almost down to nothing with a volume of programs seeing shortcuts overflowing an addon toolbar! I wasn't able to grab the remaining items seen at the bottom of that one to show just what is seen on one of the three addon toolbars there!

I know someone else that thought the same way at first who skipped over XP entirely from 2000 and loved the 64bit Vista! Once he was convinced to stay with the 64bit 7 RC a bit longer he now has that as his primary OS as well as having hosted a 7 launch party!

My first days with a Windows 8 phone
I became adventurous and spent $79 for a Windows 8 phone. I said to myself what can you lose, I spent similar money for a USB stick. But what I can gain is some experience - as if I needed that at my age, LOL. My first impressions are mixed. There are really 3 parts to it. 1. The Nokia part...
