Anyone here switched over to Windows 7 yet? My new Dell computer arrived last night with Windows 7 installed. I would have really rather kept XP but no one is offering new computers with XP and besides I tend to be leary of Microsoft's new products (remember ME & Vista?). So far I am of a mixed opinion, but it's only been 1 day. I hate the fact that I have to re-learn a new way of doing things, but parts of it seem much more intuitive. I really dislike the fact that they did away with Outlook Express. I am now in search of a new email program and have to figure out how to import all my emails and contacts into the new one. Also concerned about some of my older programs such as Mastercook, which I've been told has issues with Windows 7. The biggest thing I dislike though is the new Office interface. It now takes me twice as long to do anything as they have revamped the entire program and nothing is where it used to be. I'm sure I'll get used to it and love it eventually, having to relearn Office is a real pain. Anyone else with stories, insights, and/or suggestions?
