    I HAVE A NEW COMPUTER WITH THE NEW WINDOWS 7 SOFTWARE AND IT'S GREAT. DOSES ANY ONE ELSES HAVE IT? AND WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT IT?.
    my only beef about it i will share with every one is the fact that if you have any thing you want to install on it. it will tell you right up front its not capatable with windows 7 and every thing i have tried to install is a run a round including my cannon printer i resently set up and had to down load the windows 7 drivers to run it from the cannon web sight.BUT I DO LIKE IT .

    Just got my new laptop w/Win7 and it's a dandy. Very easy to navigate web pages, programs, access files. Nice look and feel. Have not tried hooking up the printer yet. One thing that surprised me, when I plugged in my iPod it recognized it as an empty drive- didn't even mention iTunes LOL.

    It's almost like APPLE OS. I have it. It has some kinks, but it'll do.

    That's kind of the problem. Windows is so lacking in original ideas that they have to mimic -- and quite poorly, I might add -- Apple's work. That's how it's been since the Macintosh.

    Don't even get me started on the embarrassment that is Internet Explorer. Reports are coming out that IE9 is the best one yet, but those reports always spread before the browser is made available and people see how terrible it is in terms of user friendliness and safety.

    Just got mine tonight. I'm loving the speed. Haven't had a chance to really get to know it though, but I'm already sure there's no going back.

    I have Shogun 0.0 as my OS. It pisses in my corn flakes, makes crude comments all day and crashes constantly. Oh, and it's anti-semitic.

    Just got back from vacation and dumped over 300 pics onto the laptop. Very pleased to see them automatically placed in a folder with today's date. Right click and rename. Bingo. Kinda groovy.

    Oh- and sticky notes. Love 'em. :D
