Windows 7 Users a Happy Lot
A recent report from Forrester Research shows that early Windows 7 users are pretty happy with their decision. While the company only interviewed 40 customers (this is far more anecdotal than scientific), it found they like the new features that replace third-party products such as VPNs and encryption.
On the downside, Forrester believes that two-thirds of XP apps don't work with Windows 7. I'm not sure where they're getting this; I only had a problem with a driver for an old LaserJet 1000 printer (which Redmond Report reader Mike G. helped me fix).
I like Windows 7 a lot, but it still crashes when it goes to sleep. I hate waking up to a bunch of auto-saved docs I have to sort through. What about you? Any problems with Windows 7? Report glitches and glories at firstname.lastname@example.org.
