Windows 7 first impression

For now, I had no major problem. The install went smoothly. It took 2 reboots and about 20 minutes for Windows 7 RC1 to install. The first thing I have noticed is that the driver for my video card is integrated (NVIDIA) so I don't have to suffer from a low resolution during the install of the various device drivers.

Here a list of new functionalities or changes I've noticed:

  • Better organized control panel

  • The ability to burn .iso CD image directly from Windows

  • New task bar. The windows group by task (application) and are merged with the quick launch bar

  • Microsoft Paint have been updated (Nice!) ☺

  • I find the overall GUI to be smoother

  • I can't find how to deactivate windows 3D effects which I find annoying

more later
