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?

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

    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.

    Thanks for the heads-up on that and the link.

    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.
