  1. I've mostly switched to Ubuntu. Still pop into Windows 7 every now and then, but only when I really need something that I can't get to work in Wine. Though Windows 7 is definitely shiny. And much, MUCH better than Vista. Good lord, it's so much better. Vista was barely usable by my standards, but Windows 7 is very nice to work with in comparison. Still doesn't have anything on Linux, though. Yay for Terminal and constant updating. =P On a side note, I'm likely going to be building a $1700 Corei7 PC for someone. (I believe you know this person, Bryan =P)
  2. This, sir, is ridiculous. Regardless, bask in the glory of my delicious fiber. Second fast connection in this topic ftw. [EDIT] Tried another server: That was the second attempt on that server though. The first time I got 64Mbps down, 19Mbps up, but the test got stuck on the upload for some reason.
  3. Believe me, when you use Windows 7 (or any other operating system, for that matter) you'll realize how bad vista really is. Among some of the minor annoyances is the fact that it almost always asks you if you really want to open the program you just double-clicked so that you could open it. Honestly, what kind of sense does that make?

  9. Nope. Everyone here who's running it is either running the Release Candidate (Build 7100), or has "obtained" a copy of the RTM (build 7600, the one that's going to be released to the public). If you buy a computer with Vista before October 22 or whenever it comes out, you get a free upgrade to Windows 7, if I remember correctly.

  14. Maria, this isn't really the best place to ask that question. There's whole forums out there dedicated to Windows 7/Windows in general. Really, I'd say upgrade as soon as you can, since Windows 7 is more stable, and slightly less of a resource hog. In all honesty, I find that it's more like a major update to Vista. Though that's not entirely a bad thing. Anyway, just got finished installing Windows 7 and Ubuntu 8.04 LTS on 007 Nab's laptop. I've been using Windows 7 for a while, but I haven't even touched that partition on my comp for the past week, because I've been able to do everything in Ubuntu. Wine is a pretty useful tool.
