Whatever happened to good editing?I got this book (and a couple of others) to be at my side as I installed Win 7. So far it's the one I've used the least, not only because I find more meat in the other ones I've used (see below for what else I referenced), but mainly because the index is all screwed up.EXAMPLE: I look for PAGE, PAGING, not found. I look for VIRTUAL MEMORY, I find that, and choose to head for the 'settings 389' ref. Well page 389 is all about screenshots for DATA COLLECTOR SETS. I can't say where 'settings' is, because I gave up and went to another book. You know, when dealing with learning a new OS, relating the new to the old, being stumped by stuff, there are lots of brain cells firing. A helpful book should be ready with its answers, not bent on throwing another toe stubber at its audience.Some may say that is a minor irritant, but if I've already got an irritant, courtesy of Windows 7, do I need another one from the help!?Think about the mental parallel that may be drawn here (consciously or not): O'Reilly published this with the authorization of MS and the latter's name is plastered all over the book. Is this a subtle message about the OS, i.e. 'yeah, it's mostly good, just a slight bit off base'.I still plan to read the book more thoroughly. If I have anything to say that may be in any way useful, I'll return with more impressions. Hope this adds perspective to others' search for a reference book.Other books I used: WINDOWS 7 ANNOYANCES - helpful, but not a stand alone for me. WINDOWS 7 the definitive guide - yeah..., it's ok. Sometimes the 'do it this way' directions, seemed a little muddy, on the whole, I don't think it deserves the bashing it gets in some of the reviews on its page.
