im surprised theres no pictures of them bumping chests and grunting at eachother.

seriously tho, its a nice feather in microsofts hat. 'we've sold more copies of win7 than vista... and win7 isnt even out yet.' (thats not a real quote.)

- Just imaging if the Gold disc was their only RTM copy and the disk turned out to be full of unrecoverable errors? :O

why does the disc look like those cheap CD-Rs that I can buy in like those cheap electronics stores ... is there no close up of the signed disc?

[citation][nom]ned7077[/nom]I hope that wasn't a Sharpie marker.[/citation]

Why would it matter, if it is a DVD which it more than likely is, the recording layer is sandwitched between two pieces of plastic. A sharpie's ink would have to be made of pure sulfuric acid to make it through that layer and cause harm.

also what hair do? the guy is bald not much you can do unless you want him to wear a toupe. I agree though I've seen photos and movies of him being a bit crazy but a guy with that much wealth and power has to be pretty bright, I mean in the regard seeing as he isn't an oil tycoon.

anyway good luck microsoft I'm sure people will complain about windows 7 soon after launch as they do with any MS product but I won't. I just wonder if this will solve people's driver issues who want to use their clunky 10 year old scanners and printers which worked fine in XP.

I have seen authoring discs that are gold on top, mostly ones for sale on ebay which are master copies of music for recording from. It may be industry standard to use a gold color disc for this purpose to differentiate it from other media in a work space.

So, I wonder if the RTM version of Windows7, which has tweaked and improved upon every aspect of Vista has actually updated the 1995 era Drive Usage Window?

It's Soooo 1995.

Get out your Vistas & Windows7, go to Drive properties - yep, no different from Windows95. The ugly blue & purple pie-chart maybe there forever!

But they at least put the ribbon system on the MS-Write and MS-Paint programs that almost nobody uses.

Yer right... 3 old guys grunting over a CD is a bit silly.

They should take the Japanese route. Have a bunch of hot chicks (Go ahead and make them Japanese) wearing cute/hot outfits holding CDs. Or at least clapping in the background.

Gimme a retail Win7 already dammit!
Don't make me pirate another OS! I finally have money (2 grand a month may be shit, but when your living expenses are around 500-600 a month, 2k works just fine).
