So I've been testing the beta for the 64-bit version of Windows 7 and I was really impressed. Most of my likes about were based on its Aero theme because I went from XP to 7. The beta was good, a few features were missing that I needed but aside from that solid. Recently I upgraded to the full retail version on account of I'm a member of MSDN (microsoft developers network) and boy did they fuck it up somehow. I had to turn off numerous animations for aero to look acceptable (granted I dont have the best video card in my laptop but it worked just fine on beta). The also implemented a bunch of new security features which seems more annoying then the "Cancel or Allow" thing everyone always complains about vista. Now regular system folders are blocked off to even adminstrators and to unlock them you need to go through several tabs to issue permissions. God I miss XP, but I put 4 gigs of ram into my laptop so If I were to go back I would need the 64-bit version and I hear nothing but bad things about XP's 64 bit. Well this definetly sucks!
