Windows 7 RC vs Vista

2 years ago I bought a new laptop, my first machine for the better part of 6 years. This system came with Windows Vista, 2gb of RAM and a dual core CPU and worked pretty well. Recently it became pretty slow so I decided to format it up and try out the new baby from Redmond.

Initial results and comments:

- Prettier
- Easy to install
- Excellent driver support
- Fast
- Reliable

I’ll post more as I give it more use but initial results seem great to me. Much improved on Vista!

Some of the things I've been working on recently

I left Mando Group back in May so that I could work on improving my skill set. One of the key skills I'm looking to improve is my css/xhtml knowledge so I needed to get to a position were I could build websites. My skills as a designer are somewhat lacking (I'm not an artist) so we drafted in Amy Clover (ex Martin Dawes) to ensure we had strong visuals. Once the site had been designed I got to work on my first commercial build in a long time Rock Salt Online.

Please have a look and let me know your comments from both a technical and a users perspective. a lot of work went into the site and we are looking to improve it further. Also feel free to throw it a link :-) if you like it!
