I just made the mistake of getting a new machine with Windows 7. Give me back XP Pro. Whoever "improved" Windows Explorer should be fired. Good luck with 8.
Windows 7 is a "shock" if you've never used it before. My old HP with XP Home on it bit the dust. I got an Acer with Vista on it. I was nervous because I heard lots of bad comments about Vista. As it turned out, once I learned how Vista worked, I quickly fell in love with it. For my needs, it was way better. Of course, when 7 came along, it was better than Vista. Now that 8 is on the way, I finally get a chance to try it out before hand. So far, I like it. I would like to try it on a tablet device so I can experience what its intended puropse is.
