Tip of the week: Create ad-hoc wireless networks ... Yes, even with Windows 7 Starter: Windows 7, like Windows Vista, lets you create ad-hoc, peer-to-peer wireless networks for sharing purposes. But you can also use this to share a wired (or 3G) Internet connection between two computers. According to Microsoft, this feature isn't available to Windows 7 Starter. But that's not the case at all.

Tip of the week: Get ready for Windows 7: Prepare a number of backups (including document/data backups as well a full system image backup if possible). Think about doing a clean install of the OS even if you have Vista and can upgrade. If you're installing on an existing PC, add a new drive or partition for the simplest install and the ability to dual boot with your old OS if something goes wrong. Be mindful of the tiered release schedule and try to get your hands on the OS as soon as you can, according to your abilities. Need to a new PC? You'd be better off waiting in my opinion.
