Like everyone else in the world, I downloaded my copy of Windows 7 last weekend and installed it on my Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook E-8310 laptop – a dual core machine with 4 GB RAM and a rather modest 80GB 7200 rpm harddrive.
For the first time ever, all my drivers were detected and installed automatically! Even the obscure manufacturer ones. Over the next couple of days I’m going to install all my apps on it, to see how they behave. So far, my company’s VPN client works like a charm – my number one requirement for any OS installation to last longer than a few days.
And if you wonder where that beautiful desktop wallpaper comes from… it’s from the fantastic collection by Mike Swanson (MSFT).
