Another thing that I must mention is that I was mistaken on some information that I posted in my "Update (3)" post. I mistakingly posted: "...Core i9 processors and promises octo-core processors in mainstream by Q1 of 2011." I was mistaken in that Intel's octo-core processors are not sitting around, they are already "mainstream". The reason I was mistaken (and why mainstream was in quotes) is because Intel has officially launched them, however there is apparently something weird going on about all of this, because Intel's site is claiming that they are "discontinued"... I am unaware of what all is/ has happened, but I will try and dig up some information and let you all know.
Until then, you may all continue whatever mundane things you were doing. Bye-bye now.

Well, I decided to upgrade to Windows 7 Professional, and I can actually say "upgrade" without laughing hysterically (such as in
So far the only glitches that I have come across are: 1-A small sound interruption when installing programs (Most likely caused by UAC). So basically if you are playing music and you start to install something, your sound will scratch/cut out for just a second. 2- Random disappearance of window picture on taskbar. This one is a bit harder to explain, but basically the little previews you see when holding your mouse over the folder button, or any other program with multiple windows for that matter, tend to disappear periodically. I found a way to make it happen less often (and less sporadically) by going into Control Panel/System then clicking advanced system settings, once that window comes up click the settings button under performance and then enable the option that says "Save taskbar thumbnail previews"(take note that I do not know how this will affect overall system performance, I mean it is disabled by default...). After that is enabled, they tend to only disappear after having launched a graphic intensive program or locking the computer for extended periods of time. Other than that there is not much wrong with the OS. I will be keeping a list of all the glitches I find though, just so all of you know.
In the end, Win7 is definitely an awesome OS. I dunno, maybe it's because I have been on XP for 10 years and when
PS- I was going to do a Pro/ Con list but I decided against it due to the sheer amount of pros when comparing Win7 to
