    Vista boot screen when loading Windows 7

    Not to necropost but this issue remains with the latest updates and everything, still in frikken 2010! My netbook runs 7/OSX/UNR10.04 and Windows 7 is the only one whos splash screen acts funny, well Ubuntu's does but Linux isn't exactly what I'd say is reliable when it comes to booting on...

    Will you buy Window 7 without Toolbars?

    I agree, Ubuntu has a wonderful layout, although horrid color scheme, but unique! It's still Gnome but Ubuntu's implementation of it which works out nicely. Switching to KDE though is ackward and more Windows like, just like Gnome is more Mac like and "fitting". They could start by one default...

    Windows 7 Security

    The most likely reason for disabling extensions by default is most likely to avoid confusion in a way, and also in a UI stance, makes a file kinda look "dirty". I wouldn't want all my MP3s or Images w/ thumbnails having the extension afterward. A solution would be for Microsoft to add some...

    Windows 7 Security

    Sweet, thanks. I love many of the TWiT podcasts. There is also one dedicated to Windows entitled: Windows Weekly. You can also watch Leo live on TWiT Live. Without Leo/TechTV I would no nothing about computers at all, so he deserves much credit.

    Win 7 won't shtut down

    You might wanna check out here: Windows 7 Shutdown Problem Says something about sound driver/card causing issues. I looked for autoendtasks in the registry and it looks like it's been stripped out of the latest build or been renamed. Other than that, check out windows 7 shutdown - Google Search

    Windows 7 Security

    I highly recommend listening to this podcast; it's lengthy so you might wanna listen during a drive or while your working. This particular episode covers in-depth about Windows 7 security: The TWiT Netcast Network with Leo Laporte

    Will you buy Window 7 without Toolbars?

    By light weight, I mean FAST. Does it really matter about disc space now a days? It's all about speed, we have plenty of storage for as "fat" OS as any company can make. Don't forget, programs like Media Center must be pretty big (around the 100MB size).

    Vista boot screen when loading Windows 7

    Yeah it could be because of resolution. Too bad there was no way to specify boot res. w/ diff connections.

    Vista boot screen when loading Windows 7

    Attempt "unawave's" solution. I believe that solved it for me before.

    Windows 7 RC is the real deal

    That particular processor was pretty good too. It was I believe AMD's last mobile processor before they went dual-core. Anyways my opening of explorer Windows I remember was sluggish, and alt+tabbing with CS Source or Maple Story while OK, if I also was running Firefox with like 20 tabs and MS...

    Windows 7 RC is the real deal

    Yeah, on older machines I forgot is probably the biggest increase. My laptop when I got it came with Vista Basic w/ 512MB. Of course after a month I slapped XP on because it was impossible to do 2 things at once. I upgraded to 1.5GB RAM and tried Vista again, way faster than Vista with 512 but...

    Windows 7 RC is the real deal

    Will you buy Window 7 without Toolbars?

    I think they should ditch the horrid classic theme and make a minimalistic theme/resource combo. Now we all know Windows 7 is light weight, but there should be a mode that strips Windows 7 down even further, by shutting off really, unnecessary services and giving the GUI a nice, but faster feel.

    Windows 7 RC is the real deal

    I've ran XP mode, and I find it's really nice. Having applications integrated into the Windows 7 Start Menu is very nice. But I heard it has worse support for 3D compared to Microsoft Virtual PC, VMWare, or Virtualbox but for basic applications such as Office '07, Notepad, IE6, etc. it seems to...

    Windows 7 RC is the real deal

    Just to let you all know, Windows 3.1 was 1992 and XP was 2001. So that's a 9 year difference. When Window 7 comes out, it will be late 2009 so basically an 8 year difference from XP. Therefore: Using Windows XP when Windows 7 comes out is like using Windows 3.1 when XP came out. Food for...
