Compatability is pretty good, but I hate how it nannies you. They seem to have the idea that those kids in their promotional TV ads are their main users; it doesn't trust you to do anything on your own!
"Are you sure you want to run this program?" "You're going to change this file, is that OK?" "You've been playing games for an hour. I think you should take a break."
Fuck you, Windows Seven. I know what I'm doing!
Then god forbid you want to edit system files yourself. It turns into fucking HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
"Computer, open the documents and settings folder."
"I'm afraid I can't let you do that, Dave."
"Computer! Open the documents and settings folder immediately."
"You do not have permission to, Dave."
"I bought you myself! I'm the administrator!"
"That's it! I'm unplugging you!"
"I can't let you do that." *Doors slam*
"Computer! Open the doors immediately!"
"An unnessecary process has been detected. Terminating!" *BZZZZZZZT*
I had to go through six system files changing the permissions just to convince it that I was the fucking adminitrator.
It's great if you're an old couple who just bought a PC to trace their family tree, but if you want to take control of your computer it fights tooth and nail to stop you. Also it eats up one gigabyte of RAM just running on idle. What the fuck is so important that it needs that much memory?
*edit* Just took control of the local disk. It's mine, all mine! Arrrrrrr har har!
Actually it still denied me access to a lot of files. Makes you wonder what they're hiding.
*edit2* It's not all mine.
CCleaner is only using 4% of the CPU and 30% of the RAM, so I wanted to give it higher priority so it could use as much as possible, but nooooo. Access is denied, Dave. Fucking... HAL.
Anyone know how I can get full control over Windows Hitler?
*edit3* Checked for spyware. 6000+ suspect files.
Great job Windows Firewall.
Other than that, though, it's brilliant.
