LOL! Thanks for that Andy. I haven't seen any Maddox pages in a while. Good to know he's still at it. He has a TON of funny articles like that on his website.

And thank YOU jleahman for another incoherent post. Keep 'em coming bud!

I would be quite happy to buy the OS upgrades and install them on my current machine without having to start from scratch each time.
Microsoft the once mighty giant like IBM is going to make the users so unhappy with there games they will eventually move elsewhere -- hence the resurrection of the Mac and others.
I think the Chinese have a new product out which will give us all cheaper options and they do not have to deal with patent infringement issues. Read the latest headlines on Bill Gates nervous headaches. Vista has caused too many problems and I think the snowball has started downhill.
A rerelease of a revved up 64 bit XP with extras would go a long way to build customer confidence.
Count me unhappy. I like you work hard for my money.

I felt the same about office, went to open office and never looked back. It's free, full featured and it's free. Upgrades, free. What more could you want.

That it'd be free.

I'm still going to stick to Gentoo. I don't think even Windows 7 can provide anywhere as much customization.

Amen! The only thing my audio machine will ever run.*

*For the time being.

Ok, so windows 7 has been out for a while now... so may I ask people if my main gripe upon its release was founded?

I have been using 7 now for 3-4 months... not once have I used "aeroshake(tm)" for anything else then showing other people something pointless that the guys at microsoft spent lots developing.

The trigger happy animated thumbnail creation when hovering over taskbar-ed programs has become more than an annoyance now and is a full blown distracting time waste...

These reasons are why I started this thread. I like windows 7 as an upgrade from vista (thank god I dont pay retail) as its much faster, however the things that are being marketed (in the UK at least) as improvements are features that actually detract from the user experience. It makes me really angry that this has come from large developer departments dedicated to finding ways to enhance the user experience... and the best they can come up with are at best gimmicky and pointless and at worst actually prohibitive of efficient use of the os.... bleh...

Customisation. Well, that is one word for it. So long as there are things like Gentoo around, Microsoft have no need to up their game.

I'm running ubuntu 9.10 on a p4 1.7 with 1.5 gigs ram and a 120gig hdd, run fast and stable, Also just setup a new server in the house, ubuntu 9.10 server is pretty slick. Linux has come a long way, and is very nice and simple to get going.

Default Install Hornresp

I don't know how to install a new program in Win 7.

I have downloaded Hornresp, twice now and cannot find where it has been saved.

How do I get to the .exe file that has been confirmed as saved, so that I can install the programme and put some shortcuts where I can use them?

Hi Andrew,

The default download location is in "downloads". However, it is possible to choose target directory of your own choice.

Move to "downloads":
Start > type "downloads" in the search box and you should find your downloaded hornresp. This is not a directory suited for running executables (programs). You may move the file somewhere else and run it from there.
