Windows 7 - Anyone using it yet?
Posted 19 February 2011 - 03:07 PM
There are always issues with on Windows7, for example I just found out the reason I can't watch youtub vids is because I was using IE64 bit, you have to use IE32 bit. I discovered the answer to my problem on the MS website.
The security controls are worse than Vista and more difficult to get rid of. IMO I prefer Vista, maybe others have not had the issues I've had.
But hey, that's the fun of computing right? :)

Just curious to hear about your experiences with it, especially those of you who've upgraded from Vista, and also curious to know if it feels any snappier and is worth the price :)
Also curious to know if any of our software renders differently on Windows 7.
Hi Chris... nope I am still having W/Vista.

Yes, I got that damned redirect virus. (still no clue how) BUT, the wonderful thing about Win7, is that (using the partition) you can format and reinstall a clean version.
Took me over 4 months to find one disc I needed (so old no one sells it any more). So even though I had cleaned up majority of the virus, it still messed with me, and di some good damage to files. But it couldn't touch the install, and the clean slate has been a life saver.
That was one thing I LOVED about 98, you could format and install as often as you wanted, same with windows 7!

Have you tried ATF cleaner? That got rid of the google redirect for me.

Anyway... my point is... if any of you got Windows 7 and unhappy with Windows Live Mail like me, remember a free e-mail program "Mozilla Thunderbird". It looks and works pretty much like Windows Mail. I love it.

That said ... I did find after much playing, windows live mail was much more customizable than past windows mails. If you really enjoyed outlook, you could give live another chance, it can be tweeked.

And when Gnome 3 finally comes out (http://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell) Linux will be the most advanced and useful OS on the planet. Not to mention the cheapest.
