You got it from Wal-mart? I couldn't if I wanted to! Dialup baby! FTW!

it installed perfectly over vista leaving xp alone still

i like what i see so far on the quick go, so silky smooth and quick

much better task bar with themes as i usually use windowblinds

installed very quickly too also nice that a 32bit OS recognises i have 4GB

this is with version 7000 3 days limit

Won't know until you try - very game specific(du kan ju först installera en virtuell version med VMware för att testa om spelen fungerar eller ej så slipper du formatera)

DX11 won't come bundled with Windows 7 - should be added through a service pack later on though(vista should have dx11 as well).

It is all explained in microsoft KB articles, to lazy to look for it now.

There was a repack that fixed it. You guys got the first copy that was corrupt. Don't waste any more media. Look for the repack
