    Default Anyone use Windows 7?

    I got my new computer and figured I would try out win7. So far...I HATE it! I am gonna try playing with it for a while to see if things get better but I'm thinking I'll end up back with my trusty XP

    I am considering upgrading to windows 7 in the future. I heard it is suppose to be real good. Why go back to a operating system like XP which is 2 versions ago? Soon they will no longer have fixes and updates to that program. Be bold and adventures! May as well get used to the new operating system.

    I remember saying the same thing when I first loaded Windows 98 over Windows 3.1! Lasted all of 30 minutes before I got rid of that no good OS.

    Funny thing is I said the same thing about XP when I replaced Windows 98 and I imagine I'll have words to say about Windows 7 when I migrate in a couple weeks.

    Growing pains. From what I've seen on my friend's computer Windows 7 is pretty rock solid.

    In windows vista you can change the control panel settings to "classic view" that may be an option in windows 7. Check it out.

    It's not the view. MS changed the way EVERYTHING works. Like the other day, I disabled my internet connection for a few minutes to do something and when I went to ENABLE it, I couldn't..not the easy way like in XP ya just right click and enable it again..now ya have to go to a completely different place to find it?.

    I'm just playing and writing notes
