I've got a quite a few more, but I'd rather not see you concussed by the amount of face palming that would happen.
anyone try 7 on netbooks with not a ton of RAM yet?
I hear/read that it should be as quick as XP is on netbooks, but I'm sceptical...
Is 7 just "Vista without all the unnecessary visual crap and huge memory hog stuff"?
The visual "crap" was only enabled if the system checks determined DWM could be run. Sad thing is Aero (and the desktop windows manager) was a bloated piece in and of itself. But that's a rant for another day. Most netbooks did not have the GPU horsespower to run DWM so it wasn't enabled on those devices very often.
And what memory hog stuff?
7 is a a far more optimized at the kenrel level compared to Vista. There was 2 years of a mandate to increase speed at the kernel level for Windows 7, increase suspend, startup and shut down times. Strip the fat from the kernel and the shell. Kernel made huge leaps, shell made big leaps.
Windows 8 will strip more fat from both, and hopefully, HOPEFULLY will see limited x86 support....but again, rant for another day.
