Windows 7 Install Update

I’m really enjoying the Windows 7 build that I’m running. It really does seem to run smoother and quicker than Windows Vista. Even after I installed all the programs I had running on my Vista build it still feels quicker. I have had no problems with drivers or programs installing.

It has taken a bit of time to get use to the new Taskbar. The Taskbar allows for granular control of how the tray items are treated.

Here is a screenshot of the new Start menu and the Taskbar.

I have noticed that the desktop slideshow seems a little buggy. When I have a slideshow running the background seems to go a little wacky.

I began programming in C++ when I was in college. Odd for a business major, but hey I am a Dork. After college I got a job as System Administrator. As a System Administrator I was in charge of web administration. My journey as a PHP web developer had begun. Since that time I have gained an in depth knowledge of CSS, Javascript, XML and MySQL. With changes and advances to technology I have also began learning AJAX. I started Blue Fire Development to do freelance work in my spare time.
