I dont have access to compatability mode on starter ed.
i cant change my walpaper on starter ed (now that is the thing that makes me the most annoyed)
I cant really personalise anything, i can however load games play them and uninstall them.
and listen to music and i just got the video to work too so that i can watch dvd's... but its still very impersonal.
I love the search bar integrated in the start pearl. now that is finally a windows search bar that works and it works fast and well
