I just hope they fix the transfer conflicts. I would hate for them to go through that again.

I do... though now I'm on XP.

I would really stay with XP if it did not rearrange all the views in all the folders every-so-often.
and if it had a few other creature comforts... but it's awwright.

Somebody mentioned that networking is very easy in W7. I have not figured anything out tbh. If there is not such a thing, then why could not the network just show you everything there is to see; or just the <username>folder? Sounds simple enough...
Yeah, right. It's simple alright, I can connect to my network EASY, but seeing the files, and stuff...it just doesn't

Not bad at all.

I like some of the theme options with Wpers.

I did move some stuff over to Vista from 7 like sounds and paper and looks good in Vista too.

Not crazy about the oversized taskbar but can do if .

Mostly like Nekro says Vista second edition.

nice though.

Installing Crysis slows everything right down... installing anything does.
