    Re: Windows 7 launch day is finally here

    I think Vista is better than W7. With Windows 7...

    • the taskbar is counter-productive and buggy as fuck.
      • Windows can be dragged behind the god damn taskbar.
      • The FUCKING BLINKING ICONS HOLY SHIT. You need to click and remain on the window for 2-3 seconds before it stops flashing. Now try instant messaging...
      • Twice my taskbar magically teleported to the top of my screen. It was locked. I could not drag it back down without first unlocking.
      • Windows can frequently be dragged on top of the taskbar. Clicking on the taskbar brings it back into focus.
    • Explorer crashes daily for me and InnerGoat.
    • more than 2 monitors are handled like shit. Renaming an icon for "all users" will cause it to suddenly disappear.
    • on a screen with 1050 height, the icons don't fill up the entire height of the screen by default, even though they can manually.
    • libraries suck. I want access from my start menu directly to my documents. I want my real folder path in the address bar.
    • the search field is buggy in any Explorer window.
    • each time you open a new Explorer window, it stacks on top of the old one leading to clutter. Each window position is not stored.
    • once a week, Windows will wake itself from sleep and bluescreen.
    • twice in the past week my network adapter keep resetting every 10 seconds when I had several Youtube tabs open. Had to disable and re-enable.
    • Media Center doesn't record a series schedule even though it says it will. You need to manually choose what you want to record and when.
    Windows 7 is pure hype. It's not better than the current state of Vista and the only reasons Windows Vista 2.0 doesn't have as much flack now are because it doesn't bear the same name as Vista and because Windows Vista took the hard hit of having no drivers ready when released that W7 doesn't have to deal with. Windows Vista drivers work fine on 7, but XP drivers didn't work well on Vista.

    I don't have any of these problems, but I do hate libraries.

    A lot of jcap's problems I ended up fixing the second I installed Win7. Thanks to you guys running RTM and such, I was able to get a list of shit to do on the OS to prevent such frustration.

    Taskbar can be VERY easily modified by right click > properties. This should solve stacking/shit like that. Also, come on. Pinning to taskbar fucking rules.

    To avoid libraries, I change all my shortcuts to be the actual directory, not the library herpderp. So, at the bottom left of quick launch, instead of it being "explorer.exe", I run "C:\Users\Yeah yeah\My Documents". Seems to work rather well.

    So far, I haven't experienced any bugs/crashes, so I can't say much about that. I'll have to get back to you on Media Center too. I have to say though, the Media Center gadget was the best fucking addition to sidebar/gadgets.

    Performance hasn't been a huge change, which concerns me because I moved from 32 to 64-bit with this upgrade. It's nice to have all my RAM now, but it seems not much has changed on memory usage and speed, in game and out.

    I expect to have SONAR/Sampletank back by Thanksgiving, so I'll also post about my audio in Win7 when that happens.

    Yeah, I know of the ungrouping option, but it still doesn't fix the other problems with the shitty taskbar like the flashing. Also, I hate how when you show the names of each open window, there is crazy spacing between groups of the same app and different apps. Ugh. Plus, then you can't have any "quicklaunch" items in your taskbar because opening up one app on the left will push everything to the right. Ugh again.

    As for the shortcut, yeah, I changed my one Explorer icon in the taskbar to go straight to my local user profile folder, where I can then access my documents, music, appdata, whatever. I wish I could change the target of my start menu link without screwing a lot of things up.

    The only thing I don't like is the Libraries. Everything else works well for me.

    Everything works great here except that when I install some programs, it causes nothing to show up under the all programs menu of the start bar. Weird and frustrating. I also have to Ctrl-alt-del at startup and run explorer.exe...but i'm sure thats user error not windows. I probably d/l a couple viriii late nights surfing. When i am less lazy I will do a fresh install and see if i still have issues.

    Yea, I've had none of the issues posted in this thread, with the exception of the entire libraries shit pile. I'm still trying to find a way to modify the start menu links (via the registry or something) so they open in the actual file path I want.
