Somethings wrong????

I reluctantly decided to try my free Win7 upgrade since I've now seen
evidence that Classic Shell really does work and allows me to use the
start menu I prefer.

http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/

But something isn't right..... I ran HP's Ugrade Assistant CD, then did
the upgrade and.... it works.

EVERYTHING WORKS!

I did have to re-install one printer but that's all, everything else is
fine, all settings from Vista are preserved and Classic Shell works
just as it should.

Why do I have this uneasy feeling that HP and MSFT are lulling me into
a false sense of security?

Some people are never happy, even when things go right. :)

Can't speak for HP, but if you can't trust Microsoft, who can you trust?

Because you're an eternal pessimist?

What strikes me funny, is that MS went to the trouble of
implementing their UI changes, and some people were not
receptive at all, and chose to actually write
extensions/modules/widgets/what-you-want-to-call-them just to
make them look as before.

I looked at the webpage, and until you see them side by side,
the new MS GUI elements, and the older 'classic' style items
(but still themed and looking like they belong where they are),
do seem much more appealing, or easier to understand, or
whatever.

Well, I can speak for HP. When I decided to upgrade I did a bunch of
research, I knew four things to start:

1. I wanted an Intel Core i7 920, good price/performance ratio.
2. I knew I couldn't build a PC for the price since I'd need cpu, mb
and memory and there are great deals around on PCs now.
3. I had previous experience with HP and knew that their website was to
me very superior to other manufacturers. I have complete motherboard
pics, specs, bios info, etc. along with the ability to download all
original software, drivers, etc.
4. I knew HP was probably the worst for crapware but I can remove it
all in just a few minutes now that I've learned how.
