    Well, 7201 x64 seems to have fixed the mouse problem I was having earlier. :D

    It also seems much more responsive than 7137.

    yes, this build seems much responsive and fast than the other that i was using (7100) i have to do a clean install thought, i burned the iso at high speed, and this gave me an error. So, burned again with a 8x speed, and problem solved.


    ....i guess that's time to upgrade!

    You know Windows 7 is truly a great OS when it keeps getting faster with each build!.. ;) (Among the other 100's of reasons)

    Yup, it seems to be pretty fast. Just when I thought it wasn't going to get any faster. :D

    How's the memory management in this build? Any better than the RC? ;) I'm not getting this build for multiple reasons so I don't know if it's any better or not in that department...

    Can I get a PM to link for the 64-bit and (if available) 32-bit versions of 7201 please ?

    Been running the 7100 RC and am very impressed with Win 7. I skipped VISTA completely so there is a lot new, but I like what I am seeing.

    I use my PC for general home stuff and for connecting via USB MIDI with a Boss GT-10 multi-effects unit. The VISTA driver for the GT-10 and other apps that communicate with it via that driver work great. Likewise no problems with Office, Foobar, Zoom Player and other apps that I use frequently. While I kept my XP partition live, I find I use the Win 7 partition almost all the time now.

    The only issue I've had thus far is Adobe Acrobat 7 does not install a print driver correctly, so I've had to skip it on the RC.

    Just be a little careful of the update. I did it and lost control of around 10 partitions and drives. They showed up as generic devices (eg F:, H; etc minus the names I had given them) and I couldn't access anything on them.

    Fortunately I had come across this once before (when fiddling round with Windows 7 Manager) and for some reason it had nullified permissions. Once permissions had been changed via the security settings, and the system rebooted, then everything is back to how it was before.

    Cruising along at a steady 1200kb/s (love Usenet.) I'll be performing an update rather than a clean install, too. So far, that's seemed to work okay for everybody else. Out of curiosity, do any of you have a list of new features or bug fixes included with this version? I'm coming from 7100, so I'm hoping there will be some notable changes. =]
