New Versions

This is funny: as it seems, currently everybody who wants to run Windows 7 properly on a Mac has to buy not only Microsoft’s new operating system, but also the new update from Cupertino.

When I installed 7 over the turn of the year, all hardware of my Mac was detected as generic. It was not possible to use all keys, sound did not work and the graphic card did not render the windows with transparency as I was used to with Vista—nor could I detect and drop shadows below them! (Btw, even without shadows I was able to distinguish all windows properly.)

At “Under the Wire” I found out, that the current drivers only come with Boot Camp 3.0 and this is only included in Snow Leopard. After the update and the installation of the drivers the drop shadows are as shady as ever; on Windows 7 and Snow Leopard.
