    Have to admit, I've not used windows 7 yet or Vista at all. XP all the way for me at the moment.

    However I will need to embrace one of them soon, as we're not going to be able to get any more XP licenses after they stop selling Vista Business licenses with downgrade rights to XP, damn it!

    Suppose I should move on really, but XP is like a pair of slippers with a hole in, yes it's old and maybe slightly flawed in places, but it's comfortable

    I feel the same way. I won't upgrade until I'm forced into it. and xp is amazingly fast on this machine

    Does the job.
    In your picture - how did you get Windows 7 to look like that?
    Is the ObjectDock thing part of Windows 7 or is it a free add-on or something?

    Thanks

    azrael78,

    Stardock ObjectDock

    Quite a good little app - may even install it myself once I have stopped moaning and groaning about everything computer related........

    Aye, can use any picture/icon thing you want for the icons, can set things to slide/zoom/swing however you like and all that. Found it on another forum post a year or so ago and been using it ever since. Love it

    Windows 7 is not a bad operating system, we force teachers to use it at work (they might have the same opinion) but do we care about them.

    Overtime things change and people have to learn to live with the change or you might aswell look at being a dustbin man where nothing is going to change (unless the bin's do ofcourse)

    Ok maybe some people like the classic look, but it wont be long before you will be able to download a small application that will change it so you can have it like that.

    There is only more to come in the future,

    James.

    I know the feeling lol, 7 RTM installed on my spare PC last night and it flies (Athlon 3500+) but I know what would happen if I dropped XP on all the staff and teaching PCs tomorrow... and it wouldn't be pretty

    Though saying that we did force staff onto Office 2007 on initial release with no real training (this is before I was NM) and although there was initial outcry after 2-3 weeks they liked it so hope is not lost.

    Now has anyone got a few £k spare for some virtualised 2008 boxes

    I prefer the interface of Windows 7 - but it took some getting used to. Rumour has it that the next version of Windows will have a proper dock (perhaps like a Mac) and this is part of getting people ready for it!

    you mean aside from blue screens of death, refreshing printer window list that keeps going back to the start so you cant double check to make sure you have the correct printer installed and on older machines when dragging a window around it repeats the window so all you see is it repeated all over the screen like the window is blurred everywhere etc lol

    I think you're getting their "inspiration" and "creation" mixed up.

    Point for debate: Destruction is a form of creation, true or false?
