    Hey guys,

    One thing that I observed is the lack of proper review in TDF on windows 7.

    I am thinking of diving the review into several parts:

    1) Installation, shutdown and bootup times
    2) Aero and themes
    3) Multimedia
    4) Networking
    5) Security
    6) gaming
    7) application compatibility
    8) Speed/stability
    9) Final words.

    now, I would like to see active participation by fellow members. Please pick the part that you are most familiar with, we can finalize on who-does-what.

    If this is successful, we can go ahead and do similar group reviews for many other softwares like Ubunbu, openoffice and many other free/paid applications.

    What do you guys say? Anyone interested?

    I am picking these:

    Installation, shutdown and bootup times
    Multimedia

    I would like to see everyone who voluteers here to note their bootup/shutdown times and put the same in this thread along with their config. This way we find how much differfence h/w can make.

    PS: am expecting more replies :)

    Okay, first of all, bump!

    I am on Win7 x64 now. Anywhere I can help out? I am more than willing to write out a detailed review on any part of W7. Please tell me what to test and I will do that.

    PS : I might even OC on W7.

    Okay. Speed/stability is mine then. I will help out with contributions in the taken ones too. Also, I think networking is something we all will have to do together, as each uses a different type of network/internet connection.
