Here's the deal:
Working with Windows Mail.
I open up Windows Contacts. I see all my contacts. But up at the top of the page it say Organize; View; Play All; and Burn. Just like it was a music program or something. And I don't see how to add a new contact...:confused:

Wassup?

Put in your windows 7 disk and select 'upgrade'.

Sounds like you have the option of puttin' the burn on your contacts that you don't like.
You can view the ones you are inclined to spy on, and play them all if you are so a mind.
I wouldn't mind having those options for my contact list... ;)

Looks like upgrading to Win 7 is the most obvious answer. That's probably what we'll do. Thanks.

But: I still have to make a comment about Windows Mail. We like it. Wouldn't want to toss any rocks at Thunderbird, but Win Mail, has a seriously good filter for spam. I enter in the hints I'm looking for, whether in subject or sender, tell Win Mail to delete it at the server, and then never worry about it again.

Back to Win7: I don't see any improvement for us with Win 7, but we're not gamers and don't use advanced graphics at all. On the other hand by 2 G RAM, 500 G hard drive and 2.6 G Hz processor won't have any problem.
Is there an improvement I'm not seeing? Other than fixing my Win Contacts page.

The file system is much much better than vista.

Vista is a cluster mess.

Oh. Well, that sounds like the problem that I'm having - the file system. Is that right?

Windows 7 has been out for almost 3 years, it's hands down suprior to Vista, ONLY reason why I would say not to, is to wait for Windows 8, but you're looking at next year 4th Quarter at the earliest

Windows 7 is far and away better than Vista. Heck ... XP is better than Vista. I beta tested 7 through the whole process and 7 is what Vista was meant to be in every way. They seemed to actually "listen" to the beta testers suggestions. Have you ever had to go thru the "repair console" to repair the file system or the boot files for Vista? What a piece of crap compared to 7. Or XP for that matter. It kinda reminds me of how they came out with Windows Millennium Edition after 98 and before XP (excluding 2000). It was a mistake. They were just in too big a hurry to come out with something ... anything. And thats what we ended up with. (Although I luved the control over the kernal we had)

You also have more control with the bloat and the use of resources with 7 from my experience. Hmm.. well, I should admit it. Im just addicted to speeeeeeeeeeed! Give me a fast computer!
