Windows 7

Filed under: Geek Stuff — britinla @ 6:19 pm

So long Vista, you were not the nightmare of legend, at least not on my new high end desktop, but you shall not be missed. Windows 7 brings with it several UI improvements, most particularly with the task bar which now is almost on a par with the OS X dock. The Aero Peek facilities are a useful way to see the contents of other windows.

The upgrade from Vista was painless and took less than two hours. It left my default browser alone, but did reactivate UAC. It also warned me that one application was not compatible and that I should uninstall. The application was iTunes. The warning is incorrect and iTunes works just fine, apart from an odd duplication of taskbar icons. A cheetah cannot change its spots, especially when confronted by a Snow Leopard
