Am I the only one who still uses classic interface even in Vista? I just cant stand the colors and the new start menu, so I revert to the win98 look.

I seriously found it easier getting used to OSX than getting used to Vistas interface.

I was watching the product tour on microsoft.com. They mention how easy it is to connect to other Windows 7 PCs. Will I have any problems setting up a home network if I have two older PCs running XP, and the newer PCs running 7?

In my opinion, Windows 7 is everything Vista should have been. I'm one of those guys who has been using XP since release, I only used Vista for gaming since SLI/CF scaled better on that OS. Put it this way, I migrated from XP to 7 with no regrets. It is an excellent OS and im glad Microsoft is finally ditching Vista.

You shouldn't have a problem. There are guides out there if you do need help though.

Any ideas?

short of waiting for a service pack that'll correct that issue, try patching your sound card drivers to the latest version or uninstalling and reinstalling a new version of the drivers for said sound card.

Anyone have any good widgets? I have some killer widgets on the mac side, but not so much on the windows side.

My laptop running Win7 from MSDNAA a couple of months back...still looks like this albeit the wallpaper changed.

Click the image to open in full size.


I personally find Widgets are too much clutter. Rainmeter + a suitable theme is the best option IMO.
