Windows 7 Update...

Well I did a clean install of Windows 7 last night and so far so good. It certainly seems more responsive than Vista. My laptop actually seems speedy!

Strange that there is no email client with it, Thunderbird soon sorted that out. I also installed Firefox 3.01, Open Office 3 and CADopia Pro 8 without issues. I even got my old networked HP Laserjet 4MV working on windows 7 using the XP driver. It also picked up the driver for my Belkin Bluetooth adapter first time, something that Vista did not do.

AVG Free also installed without issue, however although it works fine, Windows 7 does seem to think i would be better off with the paid for version.

All in all, it looks and feels nice and sleek. It seems faster and so far I have not had any major issues. Only a year to go before i make up my mind to update to it full time or not!
