Windows7 works very well. we just installed it about a month ago (why rush into these things, right) and aside from a few unhappy moments it has been a nearly intuitive process.
There is always a however, isnt there. In this particular OS, Word has integrated itself with all text functions. If I misspell a word in Outlook, Word underlines it in wobbly red. If I forget the apostrophe, it adds it. If I decide to type teh for the, it gets corrected. I have managed to turn of the wobbly red line, but teh and apostrophe's still get corrected, as does waht, taht, etc. Lord help us all if I have occasion to email a Mr. Taht. Who does exist, I just checked.
Last week something arrived in my Inbox and before I had a chance to open it the Officious Email Police informed me that this was a potentially dangerous website and could be sending me potentially dangerous email. And promptly deleted the mail.
Now and then I do like to get out on that high wire with "Potential Virus" hanging over my head like a malevolent crow, but Microsoft no longer allows me that thrill.
and if anyone has a clue as to how to delete that damn spell check from my email, you will be my bestest friend forever.
