If you download, install the NEW CCCP codecs, it will automatically patch up the WMP (I think you might have to click to associate with WMP) but it makes it a one-stop shop for pretty much everything except QT.

It also, therefore, updates WMC so you can now use a simple control mechanism for all your high-def movies that you may have converted and slapped onto your HTPC

I'll give Microsoft major kudos for releasing a new OS that works out of the box. SHOCKING!

I was going to upgrade but decided to hold off and cancelled my pre order, it not just not worth the money, I don't see anything I can do with it that is that much of an advantage over Vista SP2 64 bit, IMO windows 7 should be a SP, my system has been running stable as anything forever.

I figured i would wait until I do a major hardware upgrade and then get the OEM version of windows 7

Windows 7 is not an SP and your opinion is seriously flawed.

Once you actually USE the OS, you may switch up your opinion.

And for what it's worth, I am trying to say this in the nicest way possible.

How the hell does so much misinformation get out in the world?

Then you are perfectly right in not upgrading to it. If you are happy with what you have, stick to it.

But, once again, it is not an SP type update.

You can install Quicktime Alternative and Real Alternative prior to install CCCP and you have Quicktime & RealMedia added to WMP for free ^^

i have win7 running on my hp 5101 netbook and it runs great. something i am trying to fugure out though is - Readyboost has been improved with win7 and i was thinking of using it with my netbook for the added improvement. what im reading is it can improve bnattery life becasue it will let the HD be accessed less. this is true, but i also have to power the CD card slot the whole time.

so its a trade off. i will report back when i figure it out.

its an intel atom 280 and 2gb ram and a 7200 rpm drive.

your opinion but I would call it more like Windows Vista R2, to me it is not a brand new version, it is still using the same kernel of Vista

Windows Vista R2 is great way of putting it, and if vista had more positive overall opinion from the start, this is excatly what it would be called.

straight from horses mouth aka MS in technet magazine: "By now you've heard about, and might even have installed, windows server 2008 R2, which i'ill typically refer to simply as R2 in this article. Because R2 is an incremental release."

Server 2008 = Vista SP2 core
Server 2008 R2 = 7 core

from 2008 to 2008 R2 = incremental release

You are correct that it is not a complete re-write.
