Ha, gave me a laugh. Windows 95. It would probably have taken 200 floppy disks to fit windows 7.

I think maybe the reviewer was using non-US hardware. My uber-peripherals (quad speed cdrom, serial two button ball mouse -TOO BUTINZ i tell ya-, 9600 baud centronix printer, ... you get the idea !GOOD STUFF!) were all supported just fine. All I had to do for that to happen was install 487 files that must've been on a disc I threw out with the wrapper. And L@@K DUDE, the FAX is so 1337 |-|4><0r tasty!

The compression must be stolen from aliens of the future. I mean, after the install, I checked the disk usage and it was like just a few hundred megs (~1% the size of Windoze Fistya). Nero wasn't that small when I installed it on my old Windoze. And FAT32 is way cool. I mean NTFS was alright and everything. So FAT32 has one less letter, but it HAZ 2!!!! numbers... Weeee!

WINDOWS 7 is ----> smaller yes smaller than freakin' NERO!!! I still don't quite understand why the software to make a disk is bigger than the stuff that goes on a disk, but I do know that 50 images in my digital camera take up more space than the full install of this suhweet OS call Windows 7! ZOMGWFLOLROFLMAODUDE!!!!!!11111 dude. no really.

Too bad they didn't think to release it on 5.25" floppies. I bet they could have done it on only 2 maybe 3 of those babies. Look how much bigger they are. I have one of those drives, but nothing seems to need it. Still. Well, maybe they'll do something about that when they come out with Windows ATE. That would be quite useful, no doubt. So I bet they do it yes yes yes. Uh huh. And when they do, I'll be all over it. Watch me be the one who hacks the firmware so you can load GAYMZ on 'em.
