    Hummm. No.. I think my online communication skills are lacking slightly.. What appears to be coming out in print isn't synonymous with what's in my brain.

    I *meant* to imply that the taskbar did exist, that you only had to "hack" the build with a fix published on the internet. I actually didn't realize you posted it on the first page of this thread.

    There are so many different names and screens in here I'm now *wicked* confused and am going back to read over again..

    You may realize that it's not the same, but what *I* got from the others was that it was.. So I pointed out that it wasn't.

    In fact, one fellow appeared to be telling me I had no idea what I was talking about and provided some link that itself had the information wrong.



    It's appearing to me that there are one or two people in this thread that actually have a clue, and the rest are just wannabe pirates, downloading off of torrents and reading some erroneous website info.

    As for the last dig in your post.. that's probably one of the oldest insult tricks in the book of "opponent denagration a'la 80's style debate tactics"... True or not, you'll have to do better than that.

    Anyways.... Back to Windows 7...

    Lost in all the confusion I posted a link from Hexus about the PDC demo.. Since nobody here has the hardware (or even the right build) to utilize... Possibly some comments on that demo?

    I was reminded instantly of Surface. That it's the destop version. That really excites me. The possibilities..........

    Yes maybe you should re-read the thread including your own posts as you clearly haven't got a clue what is going on around you, high much ? The bong, glue, Prozac, lobotomy ?

    If your 37 then you have got to be the most immature 37 year old i have ever had the discomfort of talking with. Nobody writes 1337 sp34k anymore, only IM scrip kiddies, so i guess we all know what that make you. Next time you want to pass as a 37 year old, don't write like your 13 it's pretty easy to see through.

    Boy i can believe that alright. But i got no clue what's in your brain.

    Yeah, I have no idea (and honestly, don't really care either.. lol). It was just a comment in passing really... A "sidenote" kinda thing.


    Like I said, I wanted to comment on the rig specifically because it's amazing.. The 280's caught my eye first. Awesome cards.... and then SLI.. *drool*.

    for you XFI users..

    http://i33.tinypic.com/mbl6xu.png

    you can use the compatibility mode (RTM) and install the creative drivers,


    1 do not try to set 5.1 or 7.1 in the console

    2 go into your playback devices

    3 click speakers and then config

    4 set to whatever surround you want..

    in my case 5.1

    [​IMG]

    5 go back to your creative console

    6 set your speakers to what you want, (it has to match what you put in the playback devices)

    [​IMG]

    7 Creative Player also works in Windows 7

    hope this helps..

    Im gutted i was hoping Windows 7 was going to be revolutionary and a ball park away from vista, this early build just looks like vista.

    The GUI of Windows 7 is likely to be different once it is RTM. Remember the vast difference between the look of Vista Beta 1 compared to Beta 2, RC's and the RTM? The GUI will continue to be changed throughout development.

    I'm very excited about Windows 7. All reports suggest that the pre-beta 6801build is either comparable, or slightly better than Vista SP1/pre-beta SP2 in performance and installation. Some people are running it as their primary OS and are even gaming in it already. If it's running that well as a pre-beta build, then it I can't wait to see what the RTM will be like.

    I know it's been said a million times before, but apparently it's not getting through. Now I'm not sure how much the UI will change but no one in their right mind would start with the UI. The UI is not something you finish before all the rest, it comes last. It's like if your making a new car and want to test the motor and so on but you haven't come up with the design for the body yet (lets leave aerodynamic out of the equation), you can test the stuff in the old models body just to see how it runs. No the car makers probably don't do that because who knows if it would even fit etc. but it's just a example.

    This is how the M3 build of Longhorn looked...see anything you recognize ?

    UI and visual similarities isnt a point, those can be easily changed anyway. what sucks is if they keep the same look and feel for stuff like Explorer or even the same stupid ugly Cursor.
    thank god for Cursor fX but still, i dont get why MS bothers with some eye candy and doesnt include others.

    i'd like to see them include Dreamscene by default and orginize settings under one menu, like network settings is a different area than changing explorer settings and same goes for system protection..etc.
    thats why i like tweaking apps like TweakVI...many settings under one single icon, users shouldnt have to hunt down services.msc and then hunt system protection....put them all under one interface for gods sake
    all the windows, sub-windows, folders and subfolders makes getting around more difficult

    (6801) 64bit is running on my system, It's rock solid stable so far. I played Left 4 dead for a hour and it ran great even had microphone working and multiplayer, not a single crash so far and only a couple of things that are keeping me from making it my primary OS, like daemon tools installer isn't working right atm, logitech g15 drivers install and work but some of the lcd applets crash.

    It's like vista perfected, its faster than vista, less overhead (currently using 15% less memory than vista) more usability features.

    vista drivers work fine in win7 nvidia 180.44 , xfi SBXF_PCDRVBETA_US_2_18_0006 after setting installers for vista compatibility. Dual monitors also works.
