    Almost all of them blew off the release notes--who reads 'em--who backs
    up--who uses Windows Help among the general population--very few--actually
    to date about 30% of Windows users back up--may not be the population on
    this group which is skewed towards enthusiasts and IT types who are
    enthusiasts but it's true of the general population.

    I looked at the posts on that group.


    They slapped that puppy onto a fully loaded sins of their past, rarely
    properly cleaned or defragged, cpu sucking because they didn't
    discriminately close services they don't need runinng, and didn't close
    processes they don't need running. They made the bead their IE is freezing
    in John.

    Hell yes it's the real world. Precisely my point. But nothing I mentioned
    was the stuff og Geektopia--the fact they don't do them is the stuff of
    extreme laziness in Gen Y and Z.

    Holy cow! There are a bunch of people on the
    microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general newsgroup having problems with
    IE7. There's got to be at least 200 posts about problems with IE7 since
    4:30 PM this evening.

    This happened for IE3, IE4, IE5, IE6 and now IE7.
    This will happen for Vista, as it did for Windows 95, 98, Me, and XP.

    Give it up. There are hundreds of millions of installs of Windows out there,
    you never hear about the hundreds of millions installing that DON'T have
    issues, but the ones that do seem to become a calling card for people like
    yourself who offer nothing back to the community other than bitter
    commentary.

    Yet more complaining from John Jay Smith, but no comments on WHAT is "really
    stupid"... or why it is.

    The vast majority of people I know that have migrated or tried IE 7 versus
    IE6 don't want to go back to IE 6. They like the interface a lot more, they
    think it's faster, and of course, its more secure.

    Look, by now I think we all understand you don't like Vista or IE 7. So why
    are you bothering to post?

    I think that's a chapter in Julia Roberts autobiography about when she was
    married to Lyle Lovett...

    IE7 is not ready for release. Period. Check out
    microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general if you need proof.

    It didn't happen like that. IE7 is special.
    BS! If you read the installation instructions -- and the millions you
    are referring to don't -- you will see it says to totally uninstall Zone
    Alarm, for example, that practically no one who has ZA will do. It says
    to disable your anti virus, which practically no one will do. It says to
    reboot twice before opening IE7, which practically no one will do.

    Considering that you don't know millions of people not having issues,
    you are simply making it up as you go along.

    Where have those "people" been during the beta cycle?

  19. well not everyone does beta testing especially on a core application like
    IE, because bugs will make other programs malfunction.. its not as if its a
    separate application...

    that's why most people were avoiding it and waiting until the final,
    thinking "at last".

    When they install it they are in for a bad surprise...
    bugs and stupid design...

    I hope the consider changing their idea of making ie7 part of autoupdate on
    november....

    because if that happens tha whole world will be screaming.. lots of people
    dont know how to change things or fix things, or
    even what a newsgroup is
