  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?
  4. Just thought I'd point out that the "E" from the first grid is from Netflix.

  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.

  19. Anybody who said you couldn't upgrade from the Beta to the RC is lying. All you have to do is change one value in one file on the ISO, and it'll upgrade just fine. Not saying I suggest it though. Since I upgraded from 7057 to the RC, I've encountered a few more problems than normal. Better to do a clean install. To lazy to do it atm though.
  20. Yeah, I just got the same email. Already got a key for the 64-bit version. Anyway, I'm actually running the 64-bit version of build 7057 right now. Have to say, I'm pleased with Microsoft this time. But I'm still mad that they insist on making you go through twice as many hoops to get to certain configuration or info windows. Example would be trying to get the properties window up for "my computer". Probably the last thing I'm looking for when I right click on "computer" and select properties, is the info screen that tells you how much RAM you have, what processor you're using, etc. I'm looking for the configuration window. In XP, you just right click on "my computer" and it's there. In Vista/Windows 7, you do that, and then you have jump through an extra hoop to bring up the window that offers the other functions. I've kinda gotten used to it, but it's still annoying.
  21. I'm going to take a wild guess and say that this would be insanely hard to impliment (possibly), but I'd still like to know if it's possible. It'd be pretty cool/useful to have support for .svg's. If anyone doesn't know what I'm talking about, Wikipedia can help.
  22. What I don't understand, though, is how you can use the words "Pirate" and "Ninja" in the same sentance to describe something. Such a thing would surely self destruct, commit suicide, or otherwise oblitterate itself.
  23. I got a nice LCD monitor, an E5200, 4GB DDR2 800 RAM, a 500GB hard drive, and some cash (which will be spent on an upcomming trip my church youth group is going on). To be honest, I don't see a huge difference between my old Pentium 4 (oc'd to 4.2GHz on a 1200MHz FSB if I remember correctly). The E5200 OC's a little better now that I updated my mobo's BIOS (Gigabyte EP35-DS3R, P35 chipset), but I've only pushed it to GHz successfully so far. The new RAM could be what's holding me back though. It doesn't OC as well as my old pair of 1GB sticks. But even when I kept the RAM close to stock settings and upped the voltage on both the FSB and NB, the CPU didn't OC very well. It only stay stable while running Prime95 at 3GHz for now. And that's with a significant voltage increase.
  24. Mozilla has Ubiquity which they intend to impliment into FireFox sometime in the future. I think they win.
  25. Newegg is my #1 website for everything computer related, but I actually got an incredibly good deal at Tigerdirect. My Samsung SyncMaster 943BWX which cost something like $200+ at Newegg, only cost $130 at Tigerdirect. Though it's probably the only deal TD has that's better than newegg's. =P I'm loving the HAS stand though. It's freaking awesome.
