windows7 service pack 1 issue for dummies part 2
With all due respect...
Now, allow me to vent my frustration at these restless developments. I find extremely difficult to adapt at this pace of constant upgrading and enhancements. It is coming from all sorts of places: other platforms and various brokers and third party software etc. Perhaps it is unfair to single out NT in particular, but NT has been very active in those “enhancements” (the NT7 mini-revolution, for example) and several techie issues like the TWS version (no NT fault?) or this Windows 7 issue (again no NT fault?) . By the way I have to say that so far I have not yet heard of any similar Win 7 service pack 1 issue from other platforms or brokers services (maybe it is too early to say?) ….. I like NT . It is a very good product, but perhaps it is too sophisticated for their (our?) own good?
Plus all these "changes" are costly. Let alone the amount of time involved in understanding what is going on. One of the reasons I still use NT 6.5 is that some of the third party providers "needed to cover the costs" of extra programming development to make their stuff usable on NT7, with a $$$ price tag, for example. Now, not only I may have to spend extra money to "update" these products, but I have no idea how many times I will have to do it in the near future.
Obviously it is just me, and I may well have become old and grumpy, but I was and am quite satisfied with NT 6.5 and did not feel the need of any enhancement except reliability. Basically, I am a trader and I want to have reliable tools to help me in my trading. But I have spent almost more time trying to figure out and implement all this software "enhancements" than trading and this cannot be good.
I will re-trench into my old NT6.5 run on win XP for the time being and hope it will last for long.
