I am thinking of installing Windows 7. Has anyone tried it yet, and will Simsig work OK? I use Vista at present, and have no problems with Simsig.

Has the font issue that reared its ugly head in Vista been resolved in Win7?

No, for the simulations still using the older codes, the right-facing triangles still don't show.

I guess we have to wait for the older sims to be rebuilt.

Oh dear. Mr Gates organisation done it again. Don't touch anything from Msoft until at least a year after launch seems to be the best advice.

For full story go to PC Advisor website.

Microsoft reveals Windows 7 zero-day threat
Users told to block ports until a patch is ready

Gregg Keizer

Microsoft has confirmed that an unpatched vulnerability exists in Windows 7, but downplayed the problem, saying most users would be protected from attack by blocking two ports at the firewall.

The only problem I'm getting in Windows 7 is that the pop-up train info and F4 (timetable menu) don't show the bottom and right hand side of the box, so no add trains, ok or cancel buttons!

Whilst this loophole is a pretty poor show for an operating system that has been touted as "secure", this flaw is perhaps not as serious as some that have been found in say WinXP.

Basically all you need to do until M$ issue a patch is to close TCP ports 139 & 445 on your router or firewall.

P.S. this weakness is only present in Windows 7 & certain "Server Core" installations of 64-bit/Itanium versions of Windows 2008 Server: Windows Vista/XP/2000/Server 2003 and 32-bit version of Server 2008 are not affected. See MS Security Advisory 977544 for further details.

Matt - I have no problem with that here - maybe to do with font sizes?

Outofsection - Nothing is 100% secure. XP has regular zero-day exploits too. I would advise anyone running windows or SMB networking on Linux to keep 139 and 445 closed on their router.
