Default Re: Windows 7

I did a upgrade from XP to Windows 7 Ultimate.

Having no previous experince with vista(besides longhorn) and going from XP to W7 is a totally diffrent and i was lost for a good day.

But i agree i think its faster then XP and i like the new 7

Only problem with Windows 7 so far is driver issues. Resolved by using the windows generic drivers instead.

I never really used Vista except to try it out. I never liked it. I went from XP Home to 7 RC to 7 Pro. I don't really like XP anymore, lol.

Default Re: Windows 7

The biggest one I've found has to do with running Windows 7 on an HTPC. Whenever I turn off my A/V receiver and TV, it disables my secondary output, moving Media Center or whatever apps I have to the main screen. When I turn the receiver and TV back on, it does NOT enable the second display again. I have to right click the desktop, choose "change resolution", and then click Detect which enables it again. XP didn't do this. I haven't tried running the TV as my main monitor yet to see if it does similar stupid stuff or not. Hopefully future drivers or updates fix this.
