Drupal 7 - New things freak me out.

The initial install of Drupal 7 is quite similar, but the first thing I noticed,
when attempting to set up my database manually through settings.php, was the
change in the database structure. Drupal 7 has switched to using PDO as an
abstraction layer, db information goes into an array, like this.

$databases['default']['default'] = array(
'driver' => 'mysql',
'database' => 'drupaldb',
'username' => 'username',
'password' => 'secret',
'host' => 'localhost',

The next thing that really bugged me about the new D7 installation was the
Toolbar and Overlay modules. The toolbar, by all accounts, makes initial usage
easier for new users. However, if you have spent time with admin menu, the
Toolbar is a sad supplement and does more to frustrate you than anything else.
I disenabled both the Toolbar and the Overlay, and installed and enabled
admin menu.

Oh wait, did I say users? Not anymore, users are people now! People, really,
Drupal has gone the way of the end-user. Oh no! I see all the good coders out
there running away to find more esoteric, less human CMS's.
