It's alright i still rather Leopard though. The only thing is that i sometimes need to think about what im doing in Leopard because i'm so used to windows.
The fact you cant hit the X to close a program often annoys me.
Snow Leopard :D

I ended up uninstalling Windows 7 because my anti-virus and other programs didnt work and it just annoyed me so i deleted the partition and have stayed on Windows Vista (Heaven forbid) ever since.

You know that someone has got hold the RTM version of windows 7?! (If you want the site PM me) ;) When you download it pesters you for a license key after 30 days, but some guy made a program (I can't say the name of the program on the forums, but if you want it just PM me...) ;)
This program does the following:
What ********* does is that when executed, it stops and changes the startup type of sppsvc (Software Protection), sppuinotify (SPP Notification Service) and SLUINotify (SL UI Notification Service) services to disable. Then, then ********* simply takes ownership and full control permissions on the following files, before backing them up and finally deleting them away.
%SYSPATH%\SLLUA.exe
%SYSPATH%\sppsvc.exe
%SYSPATH%\SLUI.exe
%SYSPATH%\sppuinotify.dll
%SYSPATH%\SLUINotify.dll
This is what the results are:

And no, my name is not Marcio, it's just the first picture on google images when you search for the program...
You can probably guess my name from looking at the website on my sig... ;)

Actually I think it looks quite neat and tidy...

I still think Microsoft should start looking at linux and mac to pick some ideas...

Stop building on XP and start building on something like Ubuntu, Microsoft!!!!! :evil:
