I love Windows 7 too - I use it at work and at home.  Really good.

Subject: [BCAB] Pleasantly surprised with Windows 7

Hi all

Sorry if I'm preaching to the converted, but this is directed at people still on XP.

Since XP support has stopped, I have been forced to upgrade to Windows 7, and I'm very glad that I did.  With the help of a fantastic guide/tutorial from David Bailes, it took me an hour or so to become familiar enough to use it with no problem, and a couple of days later, I'm wondering why the hell I stuck with XP so long.  Windows 7 is so damn easy.

The simplest part is that you can just press the windows key, type a few letters of whatever you want to open, whether it a programme or file, wait a second or two, and a list of results will come up that you just hit entre on the first or arrow down to the rest.

If you do take the plunge, a look at David's tutorial will help you with the transition.  You can find it here:
