Very cool, I wish I could be on the development team for Windows. I love computers and working to fix and invent new things.

Just a side note, the math input is on Windows 7 as well. It may be hidden in your install. Right click the all programs and either open or open all users, it is in one of them. Be sure that you have gone into the folder options and selected to show all files and folders, as well as show the hidden system files too. Enclosed is a screenshot so you know I'm not full of BS.

Yea, its in one of the two, I am thinking the All Users, then under Tablet PC. I change mine so much it's hard to remember what it was like default. I can eventually find stuff, it just takes me a few seconds.

Sorry, the person you are replying to has been banned after continuously repeating the same line of text around 8 different posts. I am not sure what the motivation is for that, but it's from an unresolvable IP with no hostname attached... another spammer from India or China most likely.

Oh, I feel stupid now. Like when I started talking to a person that IMed me one day, and I got almost 5 messages into the conversation when my brother told me it was a porn bot...and he was right. :-(

On topic, I have been reading up on some of Microsoft history. I have to say, there is lots of stupid crap that people say is so important. Have you heard if there are gong to be any ridiculous requirements for Windows 8?

Since they're developing it for tablets and mobile phones, it might even be less :) Of course thats a different processor architecture and this was always planned to be a major re-write. Windows 7 was always considered to be a minor release in their development cycle. They are hoping to unify a whole bunch of different hardware platforms with this one. What that will require is anyone's guess. Very likely different hardware requirements depending on what type of device it is. I can't see the hardware requirements exceeding Windows 7, but they very well could. That is no reason to automatically write things off as bad.

I mean more than just higher system requirements, stupid stuff like removing Medea Player and Windows Messenger. That was the stupidest thing that could have ever been taken to court. I cant believe they let the cases actually see a judge. They got their way, less of the OS, but they still had to pay the same amount as if you got those features...sounds counter productive to me. Who is the fool? The fool with extra software they never use and causes them no problem...The fool without the extra software that paid the same as if they did have it. Pfffffft, just makes no since.
