Now that's available for everybody to intall and try, will you?
Hmmmm..... not yet available I think.
More available than before (1st public beta for a limited number of testers)
To answer the question ? yes in a VM
I mean the official/ legal general public availability.
Yup..it's nice...already released this week to MS partners and MSDN 'n resources like that. Can't wait for the full release, seems like it will not have the headaches Vista had going into existing business networks.
I am curious why everyone seems to think that another rushed operating system is the answer to Vista's problems. Vista was a bloated piece of crap, and chances are version 7 will be too. They might as well call their next OS Vista SE. Rushing is never a good idea. No thank you, I'll stay with XP.
Have read some good things about 7. Are they true? Time will tell.
It may very well be a renamed\further refined Vista. Done so to eliminate the bad press Vista has received. Will leave the beta alone but will be very curious upon RTM release.
Rushing is not the best way but I strongly suggest you first try Microsoft's Windows 7 beta before posting such (...) comments .
No, it may be just what Vista should had been when it was launched.
Gotta agree with HiTech_boy. I prefer to try something myself and use it long enough to form my own opinion instead of jumping to conclusions and/or falling into the trap of believing what you hear (instead of what you experience).
The above is why I've been running Vista HP on two of my computers for 1.5 years and am extremely happy with. In fact, I prefer Vista to XP. So, yes I will dual boot Vista and 7 and see what I think (regardless of what others say/post).
Definitely. If Windows 7 is faster than vista 64, as everybody claim, then Windows 7 will blow me off my chair
Installation wasn't much faster but it is definitely operating faster and it seems to require less than Vista x32. I am running x86 Win7.
I like the fact it automatically recognised most of my hardware without additional 3rd party drivers required .
Micro is in the business of O/S's. If they can trump Opera, FF, and all the others in the browser department finally, only then can i in good conscience join in this celebration. Untill then anything Micro beta throws up a red flag for me, especially where concerns IE with the exception of IE6 as bland as it may be, is easily modernized with some imagination and attractive graphics.
Well, just my opinion on this.
And I agree with your opinion.
As to IE6, I still use it and remains my favorite.
Then this attractive customization just might interest you i ran on recently for IE6.
At this point I would certainly not buy a retail copy of Vista, and will wait to see what the upgrade options for Vista to W7 are before deciding what to do about W7.
Thanks for the links Easter.
Your very welcome danny9
Let's see Vista top that and for that matter IE8 too. If a user wants tabs & super browser security for pity pete sakes, we got firefox!!!!! Who needs a strickly O/S maker trying to work way out of their element only to suffer more embarassment to their already questionable reputation. Right?
I'm definitely gonna fire it up in a virtual machine and see if it lives up to the hype.
Will I ever install win 7? probably the same answer I have for vista - not likely.
However, I do have vista on a laptop that I bought. So, no, I won't go to the local comp shop and buy a "shrink-wrapped" copy, but if I ever buy a new computer that comes with it pre-installed?.....
First, it's not a rushed OS...it's on the standard 3 year OS product cycle. XP was unusual with its long lifespan, it's like Microsoft took a break. All other Windows releases were darned close to 3 years apart.
Read what people are saying about it. It's looking like Microsoft learned a bit from Vista..and is doing a much better job this time.
Many people at quite a few forums have been running the beta for a while now...and you know what? So far..they're loving it.
Performance wise..it's quicker than Vista.
A regular at another forum I frequent even installed it on an old...OLD..Thinkpad T23 laptop. Yeah..just a humble mid-range Pentium III M. And...it runs quite acceptably...rather like XP would on it.
Running great, people are loving it....unlike Vista...remember Vistas beta? It was a slug.
If you don't have a spare hard drive, just go grab virtualbox (free)..it runs great in it.
Using a VM effectively kills the fancy gfx features, which is what all OSs from MS are about from Vista and later.
Whether Microsoft would admit it (or even realize that they are doing it in the first place), it appears from looking at the history of their releases and the subsequent adoption patterns by both the consumer and corporate install bases that they have implemented a little release/big release model, much like the periodic LTS (long term support) releases of Ubuntu. Of course, those are planned that way.
am thinking to try it n MS Virual PC
but i dont no if it'll work easily
It works rather well in VPC. I tried build 6956 and 7k in my VPC in 2008.
