Well I haven't found anybody really saying that Windows 7 isn't so hot
yet on the Internet. So maybe this is the first. And I am not so
On one Gateway MX6124 laptop ('06 era), it only detected the wireless.
Intel's video driver didn't work right. Gateway's video driver didn't
work either. Only Asus' Intel video driver worked. No sound card driver
will work, so this wouldn't be much fun to use it all.
One of my EeePCs, it was going well. Except now it will not allow an
external monitor to work anymore. But even when it was working, the only
thing I liked about Windows 7 was the taskbar and the gadgets. And
Windows 7 compatibility with XP software isn't too hot. Some wouldn't
run at all and those that do, start slow. Windows 7 itself runs almost
as fast as XP and even boots nearly as fast. So that is the good news.
So I don't know, I don't think this is for me. And it appears to be more
like a bug fix for Vista. I don't think it is going to be too much of a
hit with the masses either. And Microsoft thinks that netbook crowd are
going to want to run Windows 7? Me thinks they better not toss out that
XP source code just yet. <grin>
