I find it truly amazing that the small companies alredy have Windows 7 compatible software for their products.
Whereas the big companys (eg HP ) can't even tell me when it might be available.
Maybe in a years time they might have got their act together

Maybe a go/no go list of software could be compiled here? For example, AVG Free and Max Blast 5, seem to work ok on my system, but Stopzilla does not.

Can't install Intel Desktop Utilities,not available for Windows 7.The other Intel software i have used the software for Vista.Seems to work very well
The bigest surprise was the software Nvidia it came down as an update from Windows
I really am enjoying Windows 7.The RC version,if it is available to the public, should be even more interesting

Good to hear that TOMTOM works...I'll be needing that. I'm prettry my Lexmark X6170 is going to be useless unless I want to keep XP just for that. 3DS Max 2009 seems to work without problems, as does Photoshop CS4, and IMGBURN.

I must have missed IMGBURN.Ihave that as well
I prefer Nero but the latest version is not compatible with W7 at least that's what Nero support tell me.I have tried it and it seems OK
I find that Windows Gallery is great so i don't need Photoshop Elements and WMP 12 is great,Try watching a dvd
There are a few glitches to be sorted but as we are on build 7000 and the latest is 7048 no doubt they will be sorted with RC
Can you not get a driver for your Lexmark from Windows?
Comodo is not quite right yet, it needs more tinkering so updates work correctly.
I also have Total Recorder and that works perfectly.
Regards.
