Actually, windows 9x would do this too. There is a reason that NT machines weren't doing this kind of thing, it was a sudo security/performance issue. When installing, the OS optimized itself to the motherboard/CPU. I guess they must have figured it was better to let Windows 7 do what Windows 9x used to do. One of my favorite features of Windows 7 is the ability to grab a maximized window and move it, without having to click anything.

I'm VERY impressed Let me tell you a little story, one of almost disaster to complete recovery... As you may know, I moved my main (Dev) computer over to Windows 7 Pro. This was no easy task, as I use quite a few programs that require machine key registration (11 to be exact). It took me almost 3 days to migrate my system, and get everything "just right". Well, just over a week into using Windows 7, my motherboard failed (Asus P5K-E WiFi), and would no longer POST. So as you know that typically means a fresh install of windows and programs with a new motherboard replacement. I was very upset, wanted to shove my keyboard through both of my monitors. What makes this even worse, I had been having POSTing issues for the last 8 months, but after a few restart attempts everything started... ;-( .. not this time.... I could not get the exact same motherboard, so I purchases a new Asus P5Q Pro Turbo. Installed new motherboard, and for grins just let it boot to the Windows 7 Drive. (Booted in Safe Mode) while I was in Safe mode looking around (Was going to make an attempt at removing the old chipset drivers and such) Windows asked me to reboot, so I did. To my utter amazement, Windows 7 booted right back in with absolutely NO PROBLEMS AT ALL. I could not believe it. Re-activated Windows and I was completely back up and running. I have tried this 3 other times in the past (the latest with a Vista Ultimate Machine), and none of them worked out, Windows, as you know, is typically unforgiving with a motherboard replacement. So, needless to say I am VERY impressed. Anyway Guys & Gales... Have a great week!!!
