Just picked up my new laptop today. Haven't really had a lot of time to explore windows 7 yet. It always takes me forever to set up a new computer. There are so many things that you have to take off and add on just to get up and running. But it is always fun getting a new blank slate to work with. Hopefully will get a chance tomorrow to learn more about the new operating system and what she can do.

Hi wlee, how on earth did this find it's way into my inbox, doesn't your new laptop know that I am a techiphobe and thus have no clue on if I have windows 7. I do know that this one will have to be replaced soon and one of the things which puts me off is not having a clue how to put anything onto it, and you've just put me off even more by saying one needs to add and take off things. I know I'll end up getting a man in but they are all computer illeterate round here.

Oh thea you don't have to do all that stuff - it's just my personal preference. I won't use anything but Trendmicro for virus protection. So when I get a new computer the first thing I have to do is remove whatever virus software is installed and then install my trendmicro. Then of course I have to do a little tweaking here and there - remove things that are running in the background that I don't use and that slow down a computer. Then of course there is the uploading of all my favorite stuff. It takes a few days for me to get a new computer like I want it. One would think with all the computers we have I would be an expert at it by now. :)

Oh but it sounds as if you do Wlee, rearranging virus protection, last time I tried to do that on my sons computer some nasty virus protection spam left him with 37 trojans which aren't apparently very friendly. Luckily I was given perfect advice on here on how to sort it. I spent hours the other week trying to move my email between computers the other week and ended up a gibbering wreck despite people from across the world trying to guide me as I did it. Why can't we just purchase a new laptop ready set up with wireless internet and email which already knows who we are, and all my Greek music just moved across for me. It's bad enough that we give these people money for new laptops without being expected to know how to make tham actually work as we want as well.

I've been running win 7 ever since the first RC1 came out. It's a very nice OS, way better than vista, however I still miss my XP :(

I just got my Preorder of Windows 7 in from Newegg.com for only 50 bucks, Its looks and acts like the RC Software, but now I have my very own copy, I love Windows 7 Compared to Windows Vista. Vista blows chunks... seriously, did Microsoft even think when they made that OS... Phew... and went I went to the Store It was $119.00 for the Upgrade, Holy Cow! what a nice change. Windows 7 is defiantly a plus in my book bout time MS did something right for a change haha

I think it is pretty good. I too have not used Windows 7. From the reviews I've read and heard, I think it is cool with lots of security features.

I'm loving Windows 7. I was impressed with the early betas, excited with the RC builds, and more than happy with the final release. Microsoft did it right and coated it with a nice (in some ways) marketing campaign. The taskbar and performance improvements is enough for me to ditch XP.

I do not have Windows 7 yet. I have not installed it. But I have used Windows 7 in a friend's laptop. It looked nice to me but then, I only used it for an half an hour. So I did not get to know it pretty well. I am thinking of experimenting with it on my own computer.
