Yep, just wasted about two hours of my life - fortunately didn't sit around waiting:)
Did the custom install, tried to get Windows Mail running, but that won't work.
Tried to get Paintshop Pro running. That didn't work.
Installed PhotoImpact. Gohs, that actually worked ...
But no where near anyway faster than on my Vista. Might even have been slower.
Didn't find anything to be any faster at all.
And don't like IE8.
Restored my image and now I'm back home safely in Vista <hugh sigh of relief>.
Since I can't get PSP to install I'm not going to upgrade to Windows 7. Period.
It is not faster.
And it is pretty damn ugly.
And I don't see anything that is anywhere near to anything I'd call an improvement over what I've got now.
There you have it.
Not to mention the fact that it even doesn't have a decent emailclient.
(No I'm not going up in the cloud with Windows Live Mail and have my personal data stored in MS servers out of my control and allow MS to insert adds into personal email at will - thank you very much).
