Tom’s Hardware: Windows 7 Tips

Ten Tips for Working with Windows 7 includes some tips I had never seen before and some that are really useful.

For example, you can run the performance monitor from a command line, or from within the search box with the following syntax: perfmon /report. This generates a system diagnostics report. Of interest is that the report doesn’t appear to give me any idea why Windows 7 on a Boot-Camp partition runs so poorly within a Parallels 5 session.

A reasonable person might ask themselves, what is so great about an operating system that requires you to use GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} as a folderto get to the system settings?

And people complain that Linux is obtuse.
