I think Microsoft's philosophy with Aero is, People have these graphics beasts just sitting there doing nothing. Might as well put them to work, while at the same time, lightening the load on the processor.

You figure, what is a graphics card, besides this little beastly single-minded processor that sits there idle 80% of the time you ever use a computer. If you want to save on electricity, that's fine. However if you'd like to make sure you're getting the most out of your computer, Aero is the best way to do it, I think.

Oh god, they've put ribbons in paint now?

I switched to openoffice because of the ribbon interface office 2007 had and now I'll need to download a pixel doodling program that opens quickly D:

Why don't they give us an option to use the old interface, and why can't we customise it anymore? ;_;

So I just finished upgrading to 7 Ultimate ($8 baby!). I haven't had a chance to put it through rigorous testing but so far I'm not as blown away as I was hoping.

Pen input seems noticeably snappier. It also fixed an issue I was having with connecting to a WPA2 network.

I'm certainly hopeful. Once I tweak things into place I'm sure I'll love it. It's already growing on me. Though I don't know what I think of the really hip nature-y art thing they've got going on.

EDIT: The new taskbar still feels a little foreign and... attention-grabby, but once I switched it to include text and turned the window color to a nice dark blue, I liked it much better. I upgraded from Vista rather than a clean install (don't ever do that; decided to this time) but it's still faster, even with all my old junk. Everything feels more streamlined and locations of things in menus seems a lot more logical than they did in Vista. I'm still missing my Right click desktop > properties though. That was such a better system.

I'm still using XP like a caveman, but I am really curious to try out Windows 7. I would need to buy a new PC for it though because I absolutely need XP in order to run my music composing software.

Does anyone by chance know about its compatibility with MMF 1.5? Is it still the same deal as with Vista?

Well, since TGF1 runs... I think incompatibilities are fewer and farther in between than has been rumored. What composition software do you use?

I use a combination of Noteworthy Composer and Synthfont, but what i'm more worried about is my Yamaha XG SoftSynth driver. It's a known fact that it doesn't work on Vista without some major tweaking. D:
