    "Takes an hour+ to install , like we have an option.Use a !"

    December 21, 2007  |   By nasacouk


    1,USE a downloader application manager as it takes over an hour on broadband.

    2,CREATE a restore point using Microsoft restore.There are no cosmetic changes as the changes to programs are only apparent in the last minute of the restart on a pretty basic command prompt that addresses each basic (and lets face it revamped a billion times better by others) windows component.


    Nothing is obvious as Homer says " far. "except, The startup screen is under-sized for some reason. Takes over an hour to download even on broadband,plus add/remove programs install. and eleven minutes to restart. What don't I like? Well, if you have any other references OS wise, then please list your reference website chart of comparison, mate.
