Windows 7 - Love it!

I run XP pro on my laptop and Vista SP1 on my desktop.

Just installed windows 7 (64bit clean install)into the desktop and have to say very impressed upto now. Runs smooth I say better than XP Pro SP3 and Vista SP1. I just love the layout, made a few tweeks and just love it up to now.

The only prob I had is I couldn't get the drivers for my Soundblaster XtremeMusic sound card, using the internal one now and have to say can't really tell the diference.

Very easy to use after about an hour of looking about.

Ive got that sound card working in 64 bit 7, if you want I could zip the drivers and send to you.Admittedly I did it without all the Creative bloat but works fine.

That would be grately appreciated, I've clicked the envelope and sent you my email address.

Si_L and mammak

didn't know that but this is the first OS that I've really wanted to use.

I have found that Wireshark doesn't work, if any has found a packet sniffer that works with W7 I would love to know.

I too will not want to give it back.
