Evening / Morning all!
Been a while I know, but I finally got round to installing my copy of Windows 7. Yes I'll openly admit there may have been a slight climax (like a small child at christmas), but having installed Microsofts latest offering I'm left wondering if I've just wasted my evening?
It's evident that some bright spark has found a way to keep his MS bonus in line by rebranding the ailing Vista. Even the help files during the install of 7 are actually borrow from Vista, most of the menus are the same typical layout.
To be perfectly honestly I had been rather looking forward to actually trying it for myself and having a good peruse over the much awaiting offering, but I'm left wondering where all the hype came from?
Although I'll have to admit that I do rather like the new boot up screen, major improvement over the failed Vista GUI.
Even though I've done all the updates; explorer still decides to restart everytime I feel the need to navigate toward Gmail - slightly annoying to say the least!
I've seen a few posts on here regarding peoples thoughts on how Windows 7 looks a lot like Linux; without disrespect to the authors of those blogs I really can't see any. Mac however is a different story, the new desktop is almost consanguineous to that of a mac - the new layout could easily pass for the half brother of the aforementioned Mac.
All my programs & drivers seem to work okay with the new OS, although Norton did get a bit unhappy as did Explorer.
