I can say definitively that running NoteTab on Windows 7 Pro is faster than
it was on XP on the same machine. I'm writing this on this same machine, a
P4 I built about 5 years ago. It works better on Win 7 than it ever did on
XP. If there is some question about speeds, one can set the timer in NoteTab
to measure it, although I don't really know how to do that. There are
examples in the clip group message archive.
It might be worth seeing what Windows 7 programs are running that might
interfere with Notetab. Like automatic indexing of files, antivirus
scanners, etc. You'd want to visit the task manager and stop anything that
appears to be taking a lot of CPU cycles before running a time test.

Your 'much slower' comment is subjective.
If you still have XP installed on your system via dual-boot; try running
NoteTab using your stopwatch. Measure the time it takes to load the document
set. Then reboot back into Windows 7 and measure the loadtimes. You're
measuring 2 loadtimes in each OS: a) how long to load notetab, and b) how
long to load the documents of interest.
I run Notetab 6.12/fv on two machines, one with XP & 7 RC, another with
Vista & 7 RC. Neither machine finds NoteTab noticeably slower than the other
machine, no matter which OS is booted.
With the number of Win7 users around the world a 'noticeable reduction in
performance' would have been noticed by now and certainly by me!
Happy computing, Jim
