Windows 7 Beta 1 To Start As Early As December

GameXtract writes "With the recent announcement of Windows 7 I really don't know what to say. I'm looking at my machine, and wondering if my current XP PC is really that old. I say no, but that's a personal opinion. ZDNET received information from an anonymous source indicating that Beta 1 could hit as early as this December. Mid-December to be exact. He goes on to say that already closed beta testing has occurred on "milestone" builds. Microsoft is aiming for a late 2009 release, and with the first beta builds already out for selected individuals it looks like everything is on track….thus far. We shall see in the near future if the development takes any dumps along the way, and cause a stinky delay."

Damn I need to get my new laptop fast...wanna try out this Windows 7...hopefully it's better than the bloodsucking Vista.

THE Same thing I was thinking. Hope its better than crappy vista.

That's about the same time the beta testing for Vista will wrap up.

LOL. I think I may just wait until Windows 7 come out instead of upgrading to Vista.

I can wait. No game is going to demand Vista as a requirement besides Halo 2.

Jump In to the Next Microsoft Flop

Just make sure 7 is A LOT better than Vista MS.

Damn, what about the people who spent a crap load of money on Vista recently?

That's why I'm a Ubuntu man from now on!

The advice for people considering Vista was to either get it with a new PC or stick with XP. I got Vista free with my custom PC, so can't complain about it really. It's not like it cost me anything.

Hopefully Windows 7 will promote multicore gaming more than Vista has done. Us high end Dual core/ Quad core users would appreciate it :)

DX10 and multicore gaming are two of the big things Vista has given us. However it has made me reformat my system twice since getting it. Hurry up MS and either fix Vista quickly or abandon it and give the Vista adopters cheap Windows 7 upgrades. I don't think that's too much to ask really...
