B. You wouldn't have understood it if you had done so.
Wishful thinking on your part. And all wrong as well. What makes an OS
useful is that it runs all of the applications you want to run. Windows
7 only runs 95% of what I want to run and XP runs 100% of them.

For example, I don't care for WLM or any other reader either besides OE.
And Windows 7 won't run OE. I also use Streambox VCR daily to download
my paid subscription streams. It doesn't work under Windows 7 and it
will never work with Windows 7. Same goes for my TV tuner too. As KWorld
doesn't support that model after XP.

So clueless XS11E, anything in the manual that I missed to fix some of
these problems?

Bad habits can be hard to break, but you have at least two choices.
Break your bad habits or disable the security features that are
getting in your way. I recommend the first option.
Neither choice will get some of my applications running under Windows 7.

I neither like nor dislike Windows 7, just like I didn't like or
dislike any other OS, (with the possible exception of AmigaDOS, but
that was ages ago.)

For me, Win 7 works fine. So far it has never gotten in my way or
otherwise cramped my style, and it has certainly never treated me like
a moron. As a computer professional, I generally understand why it
does what it does, and I'm easily able to adapt my own behavior or
change its behavior, as the situation dictates. In short, I'm not
having any real problems with it.
Windows 7 cramps my style, gets in my way, and treats all users as morons.

1) I have two "My Document" folders. One on the hard drive and one lite
version on the flash drive. Windows 7 shows them as the same and merges
into one in a library. Very bad!

2) Tried to edit something in the Program Files folder and Windows 7
says no way you moron. Keep your hands out of there.

3) Can't install OE in Windows 7. Nor does some of my other software
work within Windows 7 either. Vista/Windows 7 has the worst backward
compatibility of any previous Windows version. Microsoft's fix is to run
XP in a VM. But why not just run the real XP by itself?

4) Vista nor Windows 7 supports the game port.

5) Windows 7 doesn't run my favorite media player called WMP v9. V10 is
bearable and v11 and v12 are just awful.

6) Office Update for Office 2000 doesn't work under Windows 7. You must
know each and every KB of every single update and do so manually. What a
pain in the ass!

I'll stop here, but I could probably write a book about all of this.

Pardon me for stating the obvious, but it's clear you didn't use your
year of experience wisely. You let the smallest things completely
buffalo you. It's all in the attitude. If you want help, it's here for
the asking, but if you want to moan people will call you out on it.
Bull! I use dozens of OS (this one is Xandros) and I did use my
experience wisely when it came to Windows 7. See my previous post to
Char Jackson.

Of course it doesn't but I don't expect a newbie like yourself to
understand that.

Just admit you're too inexperienced, to slow to learn, too set in your
ways or too stupid to learn to use a different OS, newbie. You'd think
you'd learn something in 35 years! I've been at it WAAAY longer than
you but Vista and later Win7 took me only an hour or two to make it
work the way I wanted it to work.

I'm putting you in my bozo bin, I have no time for those who can not or
will not learn.
Really? Boy are you clueless. I am using Xandros for an OS right now you
dope! I also run lots of OS. Like CP/M, DOS, GEOS, OS/2, Ubuntu, Puppy,
many versions of Windows, etc. Too inexperienced, eh? Don't you think it
is time to wipe that egg off of your face and apologize?

As for making Windows 7 to work the way you want it too. Well you didn't
really want much did you? And if you have the computer experience you
claim to have, then you probably remember this advice that was given in
the late 70's and early 80's.

Pick the applications that you want to run, then pick the OS that will
run them.

People today totally forgot this great advice which still applies today.
Instead they do it backwards and pick the OS first and then try to find
applications that will run under that OS.

And Microsoft has always made sure that the new Windows was backward
compatible with older Windows applications. Sure it wasn't 100% perfect,
but they did an excellent job of it. Far better than anybody else out
there anyway.

Although Microsoft broke this with Vista and Windows 7. As they have the
worst backward compatibility of any previous version. It is so bad, that
a huge percent of Vista and Windows 7 computers were downgraded to
running XP (if you could find all of the drivers you needed). Never in
the history of Microsoft has users rebelled like this.

And some of my applications just won't run under Windows 7. Things like
OE, Streambox, KWorld TV Tuner, etc. And it isn't how you configure
Windows 7 either. It just isn't going to work without recoding Windows
7. And we know that isn't going to happen.

Microsoft's answer to this mess is to run XP under Windows 7 in a VM.
Yeah I suppose that is okay if you want to run both. But doing this just
to always running XP is a stupid idea. As why not just run plain XP instead?

what else?
No that isn't it! Microsoft wants to control everybody's computer. It's
big brother in action. They no longer think of your computer as yours
(like XP and earlier), but it is now theirs (with Vista and Windows 7).

That's still pretty good advice, to an extent.

Did you forget the advice you quoted above? You're complaining that
Windows 7 isn't compatible with a handful of programs, but shouldn't
you be complaining that a handful of programs aren't compatible with
your chosen OS?

Nope! Microsoft had great backwards compatibility with their OS. A name
that you could trust. Heck I sometimes run software from '88 on XP.
Although Microsoft broke that trust with Vista and Windows 7, sad to
say. :-(

There you go again with another complaint. It must be hell to be you, so
unhappy with everything and wanting things you can never have.
There you go acting like a moron like always. I was satisfied with
MS-DOS 2.11, MS-DOS v3.21, MS-DOS v6.x, Windows 3.1x, Windows 9x,
Windows 2000, and Windows XP. Any questions moron?

Run the Professional or Ultimate flavor of Windows 7 and it comes with XP
Mode. Run your non-compliant\non-compatible applications in the XP Mode VM.

Yes I know (I mentioned this earlier). Although running XP in a VM
doesn't make a lot of sense if you just use XP VM all of the time. Just
use XP by itself.

I ran Vista beta when it came out, and Win7 is reminding me of why I
hated it so much. Why in the bloody hell can I not access the start
menu, documents and settings, application data, etc in WE????? Is there
a way to get this infuriating nonsense to stop, and get the OS to stop
treating me like it's my MOMMY???

ARRRRRGHHH!!! Drives me NUTS!

TIA

Dan

Macs don't have that problem.
Get one. Or install one of the "OSX86" versions out there and make
yourself a Hackintosh.
There's a few good articles on Lifehacker about it.

Vista kicked my ass too. It really is what made me switch to Mac.

Now your complaint is that you think I'm a moron. You don't even know
when you're complaining because it's second nature to you.
We see what you are doing Alias. You are complaining! Kind of like the
pot calling the kettle black, eh? ;-)

~~~~~

This is a phrase that states that the person you are talking to is
calling you something that they themselves are (and generally in
abundance).

This comes from old times when pots and pans were generally black and
kettles were generally metallic and reflective. Therefore the pot sees
its black reflection in the kettle and thinks that the kettle is black.

No, I am observing your behavior.
No you were complaining. It s just that simple. And that is what people
do in computer newsgroups. They post problems that they are having and
complain that they don't know how to get rid of it and they need help.

So if you are looking for a newsgroup without complaining, maybe those
binary newsgroups would be more pleasing to you. ;-)
Not at all.
Just like all actually.
I know what the phrase means but it doesn't apply.
Sure it does exactly.
