I think a lot of you have it. now I do. my old PC with XP home did its titanic act last week. so Now i have a new one with 7. i did an upgrade. bigger HD and SDRAM and graphics. so far I really like 7. smooth and seamless. explorer 9. no CD ROM. guess that's history??? a DVD/CDRW. I burn a lot of music and vids.
oh yeah its an HP. so was my old one and Ive a good track record with them

I would use either Opera or Firefox for your browser, Explorer 9 is not my favorite.How is obama working out for you?

I'm satisfied with Windows 7, don't like their file structure though. I use windows explorer a lot and the Win7 file structure makes it appear as if you have massive copies of many files.

It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

Hope that you got Windows 7 Professional, which is their NT-progeny, rather than the home version. The various home versions of Windows have been less stable than the pro versions, ever since Window Millenium (or Windows Malevolent, as I used to call it).
I use Chrome for most things at home, but Internet Explorer for anything Army-related, as the CAC applications aren't supported as well in Chrome.
You may find that the emulation-mode for older Windows versions isn't as good as advertised. I have a few programs that were written in the late 90s-early 00s that don't work in 7, but did work in XP, that I've had to upgrade. On the plus side, the older aps that do work in the new environment are much faster, as Win 7 Pro is much less of a resource hog than Vista.--Odysseus

Firefox or Chrome, IE has soo many holes in its security it's not funny, they are literally 4-5 years behind the others in security. If you REALLY need to use IE for something, Firefox has an addon that lets you use it in a Firefox tab."Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings..."
