Yea kay's post sums it up. They didn't really remove the quick launch tbh. If you "pin" an application to the task bar, then it is essentially a quick launch and the icon stays there and can be launched if you click it.

... but I'm reading through this and there are some things that seem insane to me:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feature...from_Windows_7




Are they trying to piss off people who actually use their operating system to work with files? I thought Vista screwed things up by making it more complicated to do basic things like sort a folder full of files (especially music) by the date the file was created or modified...

This just takes the cake.

I'll definitely have to use Windows 7 extensively before I even think of buying it. These changes are just ridiculous IMO.
yap. agree i miss most of the missing parts.

You get something better instead. There's now a little icon pinned to the taskbar you can right click, and it gives you instant access to your favorite folders. Among them being your downloads folder, documents, pictures, music, and you can add your own, including those drive letters. In the end you get the same function but just involves one additional click, but on the plus side there's less clutter. If you want you can add individual icons for those but I wouldn't just for the sake of cleanliness.

You seriously have a problem man seeing hate in my words. Why don't you just chill and take a holiday?
No it's just given your previous posts, and you know it. Like I said, it isn't even out yet.

How about you just move on and stop making assumptions about what I say, thinking it's some Microsoft, Windows attack.

Anyone here running Windows 7 on a SSD? Is it really that much faster than a standard hard drive? Just wondering because I'm thinking of getting a SSD for it.

Given that HDMI is a digital output and therefore going to be entirely separate from normal speaker output, I'd imagine there's a driver setting somewhere where you have to swap between the two, much as you'd swap between speakers and s/pdif.

There is an little graphic equalizer that displays audio going out, but nothing actually comes out.

I've been real shocked with Windows 7 and how good it actually is. zoomy asks me all the time why I've given up on Linux, and I tell him that Windows 7 is actually that good. I have ran into 0 problems so far, and this is running Windows 7 since Beta. Great job MS! You guys actually did something right for a change!

Virtual hard disks
The Enterprise and Ultimate editions of Windows 7 incorporate support for the Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) file format. VHD files can be mounted as drives, created, and booted from, in the same way as WIM files.[43] Furthermore, an installed version of Windows 7 can be booted and run from a VHD drive, even on non-virtual hardware, thereby providing a new way to multi boot Windows. Some features such as hibernation and Bitlocker are not available when booting from VHD.
anyone found out how to create those VHDs?
