Windows 7: WTF is going on with Windows 7

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi all

I've used loads of OS'es from IBM mainframes to the latest incarnations of Windows

MS products aren't ANYTHING LIKE as horrible as people make out - and don't tell me people don't have trouble with Apple computers etc etc.

Any OS will have its quirks and problems - Windows included - but so far W7 seems to be the easiest and most trouble free OS I've had to deal with. - XP had problems when it first came out - now conveniently forgotten - and I won't even begin to describe potential and actual pitfalls that await the unwary or inexperienced Linux user.

If you READ the manuals and do a little bit of research before posting about a screenful of basically venomous remarks of little merit without really describing what's going on you aren't going the right way about getting any assistance (especially with only 2 posts on a Windows 7 Forum).

I think you'll find with a very little research that Windows 7 has been extremely well received (not only by THIS community but by the public at large) .

If you don't like MS products - then don't use them. There's plenty of other choice out there - but you won't find them as easy to use (or as cheap).

windows 7 32bit/64bit

Ok I have 4 computers using Windows 7 and it's worked better than any operating system I've had. I haven't had any conflicts except when I'm trying something new like testing a 3rd party firewall and getting a blue screen. I just go to safemode and uninstall it and I'm good to go. I like to start out with fresh installations because I can test the software one by one to see if I have any conflicts. A lot of times we blame the OS when it might be the software that's causing the problem. I am also a Linux user with dual boot installations to two of my computers. I think Microsoft has a gem in this OS and I've never known any OS to be perfect, to tell you the truth. I don't defend any company cause no one's paying me, but I can surely vouch for things that work. If you have any questions on Win7, please feel free to ask me and if I can fix the problem, I'll be glad to help :)

5 clicks

Also, in the notification area, the little arrow I can click to see all the programs that aren't displayed next to the clock...
1 click, 1 click + drag

I downloaded VLC Player, which I specified to be the default player for all video file types.
Sounds like a VLC player issue
