Windows 7: Feature Complete & Ready to Rock!

I had a couple of “unassigned hours” this morning.  So I figured that it would be time to do a clean install of Windows 7.  And as everyone is aware, I’ve been thoroughly impressed with what Redmond has assembled.  But like most people, I’ve had a couple of minor annoyances that I wanted corrected.  And with this re-install, almost every one of them has been addressed.

– Homegroups finally work!  Yay!
– Permissions on all files seem to be working properly.
– Odd video fragments seem to be a thing of the past.  Indeed, video performance is spectacular.
– Windows Media Center issues have been resolved – including guide download problems.  BTW, I really do like the new Media Center fit-and-finish (including Internet TV touches).

I still have a lot of work to do – especially rebuilding and re-installing iTunes and getting Amazon’s MP3 Downloader to work without tweaking.  But all-in-all, I am thoroughly impressed with the overall Windows 7 experience.  This IS what Vista should have been.
