OK let me clarify. I find win7 to be 95% excellent and 5% crap! The 5% is the new GUI and the lack of classic menus. Most people who use their PCs for work either at the company or at home do not need fancy colours. They do not need to waste so much time trying to find how to do something (this includes the Horrid RIBBON interface in OFFICE). I tried since February to learn the new GUI in win7 and gave up. Fortunately I found an application that has alleviated the problem CLASSIC SHELL. I have thousands of files (3D solid models and all manner of photos, docs etc). and I do not need to search for them every time. With XP I knew exactly where I had my files and where to find them with 2-3 clicks. Win 7 has a mind of its own. It hides and puts things where it likes. I have little control. I am not an IT manager nor a programmer. However I have been using computers for over 25 years now and never had a problem using windows OS up until Win 7. There is no logic behind the way it works. The explorer is a disaster. Yes technology must improve and since I use 3D solid modelling software I need very powerful Graphics capability and a powerful CPU. a 128bit system is no good to me if I have to waste time trying to figure out how to use my PC?
Honestly; I have spent many hours in my life learning complicated software and what I do not need is a menu system that makes it harder to learn and use the software. Firefox declined from using Ribbon just for this reason.
I love win 7; It is very fast and stable but My God this HORRID new menu and Ribbon is just too much!
