Windows 7 ( I call it ReVista cause it is still the Vista core and NTFS file system ) seems to be more stable at this point than Vista was when released.
Sad to report that Corel things seem to break though
However, Corel might work if I re-installed it. I just haven't got around to trying that since I seldom use Painter Essentials 4 anymore since I found artrage. But when I tried them under Windows 7 they froze.
I knew artrage didn't freeze but I almost always am on my XP desktop with bigger monitor for that. In the process of booting installed programs to see what worked and what didn't I clicked in and out of artrage when I saw it worked fine.
My artistic ability is strained to draw stick figures.
I sit here in front of the computer in awe of the talent displayed by the posters in Art Rage.
