    Where did Windows 7 get it's name?

    right but windows 7 is "version 7" not "6.1". I find it funny.

    After reboot UI problems

    Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS. The funny thing is, it was working fine for me after I installed W7 and the newest drivers. it actually started happening a day or two after that. And that's the only graphical glitch that I ever get, as I'm also gaming with 7. Really odd.

    Corrupt title bar graphics

    it's most likely the case, but I have the most recent drivers. Probably will be fixed with a future release.

    What is your Experience Index score?

    alright i'm 100% convinced now (thank you, katanna for my revelation!) M$ MUST be comparing our normal rotary hard disks to SSD performance, thus giving us a maximum rating of 5.9 for standard disks. Only a SSD is capable of anything higher. Really really irks me.

    if you type in "winver" in the run command in xp, it shows 5.1 and in vista 6.0. in windows 7 i see it says my winver is 6.1 right now. not sure if that is due to it's being a beta or what but by release date i'm sure it'll say 7.0. but yes, what sbrach says is true.

    After reboot UI problems

    Once i reboot my computer I get the issue shown in the picture attached. In order to fix it, I go into the screen resolution and change it. Everything will go back to normal and I will then revert it back to the original. It's a tough thing to explain, so I havnt done much googling. any ideas...

    Windows 7 Experience Index

    I noticed the changes, and quite frankly I think they are flawed. I'm scoring a 5.5, which I'm not surprised about seeing as I'm not running DDR3. I have 2 GB DDR2 - 1066. But what irks me is it's rating for my primary Hard Disk. it's rating it as a 5.9. I'm not sure why (my only idea is that...
