Win 7


Anybody here download the beta of win 7? I did last week and have been playing around with it. Pretty cool. Seems alot cleaner than xp pro. Hope MS doesn't mess this OS up like they have in the past with others.

Re: Win 7


It's supposed to be released very much like it is today. Most reviewers feel it's ready now.
It's very streamlined and runs very well. I installed it on an older laptop, even though there are any Vista drivers for that machine Windows 7 found drivers and everything is working perfect. All the software I've installed also have run without a problem.
IE8 is another issue

I was thinking about it, but the awesome version they had last time was
such a stunning success, I figured "no way can they top this Vista program"

I saw something oddly familiar in the paper recently. U2 is getting ready for a
new release. You know what they're doing? Their releasing 5 different
versions.

Marketing genius. I think I am going to release 4 different versions of framing

Home Premium

Ultimate

Re: Win 7


ME was terrible!!! I have 2 with xp pro and one with vista home. I like them all no real issues with vista but then again it behaves more like xp and 98 than vista.
