Nice to see a moderator trolling.

Hey, I'm a person too, I can troll every once in a while. But you have to admit that this topic has been derailed for quite a while.

I have to admit I'm a bit of an Apple fanboy (been using a Mac since I was 5 or so), and as such Microsoft has always been the evil idea stealer. I almost feel a need to point out to Windows users who are impressed with an awesome "new" feature that it isn't so new after all.

That being said, to stay on topic: I have a dial boot machine, one with Mac and one with Windows XP. I have no plans at all to upgrade the Windows portion until I can't play games on it, mainly because that's what I use it for, but also because I have a stripped version of Windows XP that takes up like 80mb, starts up in 15 seconds, and is simple and works. Windows 7 seems altogether far too bloated to me, especially for $300.

Going back to the original post, I just read in the release notes for 1.6.0_18 (http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/6u18.html) that Windows 7 is now officially supported.

Then I assume Windows 7 was not supported in 1.6.0_17 and below.

Well maybe not supported but I haven't had any problems with Java, even in Windows 7 beta which I think I was using 1.6.0_13 ish.

Launching new instances of existing applications requires more user actions; either shift-click, or right click->menu->left click.
Just found this one: middle click a taskbar button to open a new window/instance for that app.
