If you really want to tune Windows 7 and make it workable in the way that you can with XP this is not the book for you. This is a book for people who believe that Microsoft have taken the right decisions in deciding what you want to see on context menus or the start menu; believe that having little pictures all over the place is helpful; believe that by default the administrator should not have complete control and are happy to have Microsoft designed data storage structures given precedence over systems you've grown for 5, 10 or 15 years. It will not help you cut out all the unnecessary additions and processes which degrade performance and contributes virtually nothing to producing an efficient and effective business machine. For those computer professionals who want to use Windows 7 in a business environment this is not the book to buy - but then Windows 7 is not a sensible choice for business use at this stage. For the Microsoft synchofant who believes Windows 7 is a great step forward it does lift at least a small corner on the operating but you will learn more from the many forums on the net. This book has none of the power of The Windows XP Answer Book and similar products.
