First Impressions

Default desktop wallpaper in the Ultimate version is a Betta fish! (Siamese Fighter) Weird things:

The very old Dlink wireless card in the machine which would not work in Vista, works in 7 but the sound which did work in Vista won't!

Dual boot works fine, and not sure about sli yet, any ideas on a free antivirus AVG work ok?

1) Boots very quickly

2) Like the way you can switch open tabs by hovering he mouse.

3) IE8 painfully slow on some sites.

4) Driver support appears to better than that for Vista (work that one out!)

5) About to tackle SLI (should be fun!)

Then I will try a game.

Oh, and I'd better provide my first impressions feedback to the folks in Redmond I guess.

Yes, this is very true and it certainly keeps us on our toes. Although I am all but 59 in years I'm relatively new to PCs even though I find things very interesting.

The reason I say that is I came up the mouse route ( like many of the young now) so keyboard shortcuts are a foreign language to me. The shake would therefore be an obvious thing to a mouse man like me.

Why have 101 way's of doing the same thing? Yes, it looks nice, but novice users are faced with ever more complex methods of performing simple task's.

The likes of you and I and many here have "been around the block" I started with DOS (shows age) There is something to be said for the KISS theory really.
