my copy of windows 7
wonder what im doing later
Have fun, I look forward to hear if it good or not.
sending error reports
We've been using the release candidate on of our PCs for a while - it's pretty nice. Our upgrade is due 29th Oct (no I don't why there's a delay? )
So looking forward to all the PCs in the house going over!
i wanna play we have xp on1 and vista on another im not a lover of vista i have to say
I use Vista but my bother hates it and uses XP, I'm happy as long as it works and I can do what I want.
I liked XP but Vista made me stone cold which was when I defected , interesting how many of the features they are selling win7 bear a striking resemblance to some other systems
Wink, wink, nudge, nudge... say no more!
Tom macwave:... who? moi?)
i have xp and vista on one pc, prefer vista tbh but ive never had a problem with any OS really......when i need to upgrade my laptop, i will defo get a mac, just didnt have another 600 quid on top of the 650 i spent on this one for a 17" macbook pro, no way going back to a small screen again
Leave him alone! I'm sure windows 7 is a good upgrade.... snow leopard? No. but a nice upgrade none the less and let's face it... anything can beat vista. Even Linux.
Or getting a message stating
Sorry whilst sending the error report windows has encountered a problem and needs to shut down.

Thats what happened to me this morning and I'm using win 98 at work
ah... windows 98.. those where the days I remember our old windows 95 computer!! Packard bell with something stupid like 32mb of ram! Cost a bomb in those days
win 98 omg talkabout live in the dark ages.....most BSoD' are the wrong drivers, ie written by MS to get the machine up and running, the you download the correct manufacturers ones, or even a bad memory stick, the codes are there to determine what the probs are.
ive never ever had a BSoD at home
even you said yourself SL has its faults
my first pc was an
intel dx2 50 cpu
running windows for workgroups
Everyone knows I'm a unix/mac guy but windows 7 is really good. It's what vista should have been for sure.
Some things are done even better than on macosx (shock!). The task bar at the bottom now just shows one icon per set of windows (rather like a certain macosx BUT when you click on the icon, you get a full mini preview of every window open AND closed for that application making it very easy to see which windows you want to click on.
I still think macosx is better and laptop wise, there simply isnt a pc laptop in the world to touch the macbook pro (in my humble opinion) but windows 7 is a really good worthwhile upgrade. In fact, if anyone reading this has Vista left on a machine, either downgrade it immediately to xp or buy windows 7. It'll feel like you've bought a brand new faster machine
Ah but my problem with snowleaopard was sorted after just 5 minutes and t healed itself in everyother way
Yep windows 98 and if we upgrade or do any updates the whole server crashes pretty much on the NHS - I kid you not
don't get me started on the IT systems inflicted upon the NHS. Let's just not go there
thats good then
you must be the only ones left on 98 then, everywhere ive been has been on xp for donkeys
cant wait to get it on my fast pc
keith do you reckon that the 64bit version would be worth installing as it come in the box with the 32bit
