    • hey, G.
      Question for you.

      I know you recently built a PC and installed the RC of Windows 7 on it… What are your impressions so far?

  3. paul: coming from xp, which was a leap of faith, i have to say win7 is the bees knees. i’m still trying to find time to do a write up on my blog about the whole experience but the in a nutshell version is windows 7 has by far exceeded my expectations. my experience with vista (on clients computers) was an exercise in futility and annoying.

    with win7, microsoft seems to have gotten the hint that we need an os that works well, doesn’t annoy, and performs well. they hit the nail on the head with this latest os.

    the biggest difference for me is working with the task bar. it is far more efficient than the xp (or vista) task bar. Aero peek is an efficient method of jumping where you need to go when you have numerous programs open.

    libraries is a lot like my documents but is more efficient and acts more like grand central station for getting to the file quicker.

    the biggest surprise was driver support! as many of you pc builders know, tracking down drivers for a new os can take a lot of time. not so with win7. the only driver i had to track down was my hp printer driver and only because when i moved from xp to win7, i also moved from x86 to x64 (32 bit to 64bit).

    sorry for getting a little long winded but there is so much to say about win7!!! i will definitely pony up the dinero when the evaluation time is over.

    • Thank you, G.
      I knew you were an “XP man”, and so I was very curious as to your feel for the new OS.

      I know you are extremely busy, but please let me know when you get the article posted, as I’d like to put a link up for my readers.

      PS– If you ever get a post up about what it was like to build your very first computer, I’m sure some of my readers would want to check that out too!
