Snappy and.... reponkenslive
Dear god, she sounds like my fucking sister.
I'm getting W7. Only thing is, I'll need to format my PC when I do, so I think i'll get me an external at some point.
I just installed windows 7 today, the official version that is coming out next month....not beta....not RC, the real fucking thing.
Windows 7 ultimate (what I'm using) is just so much easier to use and faster, I went from about a minute in boot time to 20 seconds or less, and once I hit the desktop every program is already fully loaded, no waiting for shit to launch.
I've got two serial numbers and I might be willing to give one of them out (its reusable endless amounts of times on as many pcs as you want) for a fair price.
The only thing that I have problems with is the driver for my sound card (ht omega striker) but that's only because they haven't invested a lot of resources into the current version yet, when the release comes a new version will be out and Windows 7 will be smooth sailing for me. Till then, I'm relying on an older vista driver.
Oh, not only is it the next XP, its like XP on opium (which is like morphine on crack).
It's just so more user friendly, your first 20 minutes or so will be learning all the new shit but its just that easy. No tricks, no fucking shitty bugs.

Oh yea if you choose the "upgrade" option it takes like 2 hours almost
But a clean install takes like 20 minutes, just a heads up.
And if your doing an upgrade you have to do it from your desktop, it cannot be done during boot up from the disk.
Also if it recommends to uninstall or requires you to uninstall a program, just fucking do it. Even if its barney's magic hippy dildo land 2 uninstall and reinstall it after. It will avoid any possible issues once you've upgraded.

Just found a windows 7 fix for my sound card.
Second post read it if you have this card. It involves you making your own driver.
Don't worry it takes about two minutes to make it a monkey could do it.
Another cool feature is desktop wallpapers, the default ones are just picture packs but every ten minutes or so (haven't timed it exactly) the desktop will change to a different picture. This can probably lead the way to full videos playing on your desktop. Can't wait to see what's going to come.

Ah and anyone looking for a soundcard cheap get the "HT Omega Striker 7.1" it has 7.1 support and its better than many $150 cards or higher.
I'v been using the Windows 7 RC for about 3 months now, since June. I love it so much more than vista. Yeah, the background thing is pretty rad, but i get an extra 35 minutes on my Dell xps laptop when using Windows 7!. Not only that, every game / program loads so much faster. Photshop loads faster, Zeke's right, it's like XP on crack without the lego blue and green colors.
Another sweet thing to check out is Windows xp mode, so if any programs don't work with windows 7, just fire up windows xp within windows 7 in a new window and run that program.
I want it.
I already have the RC, need moar windows 7.
Gtg, just discovered bf1942 still runs.
Already got it and it kept querying the IPv6 server of Microsoft causing my internet to bug out for a few minutes which is highly annoying.
Might try and install it when it comes around as Vista Hates me and my computer,
Haha I had that on Vista (well sort of) anytime I tried to install a wireless device that fucker blocked every product I tried.
