Windows 7

Well, Our Microsoft Action Pack disks for Windows 7 arrived today.
Installing as an upgrade to a largely unused Vista Ultimate install. (only used for testing media centre)
Was a little nonplussed when it said “upgrading your installation may take several Hours”!
As it happened, it did take nearly 3.
First it insisted on updating Vista, which as it hadn’t been used for a couple of months, took a fair while.
Then after all the file copying and compulsory reboots, it launched.

Quite impressed by the user experience, quite unimpressed by the fact that every management task seems to need at least one more click, or strange manoeuvres to reveal the hidden tools.

Everything seems to work OK.
The media centre is pants though.
