The Windows 7 environment, new to me, is not overly daunting, though there are some things I have yet to get used to.
The following things don’t seem to work:
- Panorama32, my wallpaper switcher of choice. Fortunately, Win7 has its own.
- Lotus 1-2-3 and associated apps. Actually, these barely worked on XP, though 1-2-3 itself has dealt with my search-engine spreadsheets for years. Open Office 3.4.1 — I have had bad experiences with 4.x — seems to be able to do the job, and it reads all the old files well enough.
- Adobe Photoshop Essentials, though this is my fault: I can’t find the original installation DVD.
- Nero Burning ROM, which flatly refused my reinstall: “This serial number has expired.” This was a version-7 install; they’re up to something like 12 now. And I never could deal with the increasing bloat.
So basically I’m looking for a Nero replacement. Suggestions are welcomed. (And no, I haven’t tried whatever application Windows itself provides.)
