Windows 7, anyone using it?
« on: January 05, 2010, 09:16:46 AM »
Check the topic name, considering to uppgrade since I need a new system that can handle more RAM anyway. Anyone who actually has it has any thoughts on it? And really stuff like "I heard this sucks bla bla bla" from people who haven't tried it ain't helpful. Heard enough of that about vista even though I've had it since it got out with very few problems :P

No comment on Windows.  Everything I want to do I can do with Fedora 12.  It even runs many Windows applications through WINE.

I'm on windows 7.
Most important thing, it runs NWN!

Otherwise, it's much less of a bitch than Vista.. I turned off all the fancy gimicks and bells and whistles and all, so no comment on that, but otherwise, it's a perfectly functional OS.
Just hope you've got your office 2003 install disks somewhere. I hate 2007.

I have it, I'm pretty happy with it too. Installing HotU was a little tricky, but now everything runs fine!

Perhaps you should spend the time you do irrelevant stuff on something creative?

Windows 7 really works with NWN? I even heard it was worse then Vista :O

Well, you have to do the ol' run as administrator gimmick, but yup, works.

It has an entire new feature that lets you emulate windows XP through a window in windows. (Does that make sense to you? I hope so because I can't really explain it in any other way xD)

Yup, this. I about had a PANIC attack when I thought nwn wouldn't work on my expensive new laptop. Then I ran it as admin.

Sup Knas, we heard you like Windows, so we put Windows in a Window so you can browse while you browse.

I'm using Windows 7 on my new gaming rig, and I gotta say after awhile of getting used to it, I love it. I have had no real problems of stability, I love how all windows from the same program stack (Like in XP) but when you over over the one icon it fans out and you can select which of the windows you wish to browse. Not sure if vista also had that, I didn't bother with Vista.
