With today's release of the public beta of Windows 7, there are still plenty of unanswered questions related to Microsoft's new OS. Let's examine some of them here.
...what we are doing ;-D YEP...That's Micro$oft for you.
windows 7 is the bees knees im afraid ken. sorry to ruin your life ;)
So far, I enjoy Window 7. Those who enjoy classic/xp might have a more difficult time switching to 7 oppose to those who already switch to Vista. I am getting the Ultimate regardless of how many editions there are and as long as it comes out before 2011, I can get it cheap from my school.
I'm impressed so far. I wasn't able to transfer from XP to 7 so I had to back up all my data on an external. I did a clean install and as soon as I connected to the Internet (automatically) it downloaded all of my drivers. Very impressive. I am amazed that Windows 7 is only a beta. I'm also using Internet Explorer 8; very fast and the first time I used IE in over a year. All I have to say is good work. Finally an upgrade I'm willing to pay for.
I was shocked as well - when I installed Vista on my PC the same thing happened (auto internet connection + drivers).
me too, but anyone know how we get the key so the beta dont expire in a few weeks
http://www.microsoft.com/wi... go their, go to download and it will give you a CD key.
my Vista "Capable" HP doesn't Aero that well.. but Window 7 runs is pretty good. still messing around with it. after install the 64bit.. it takes up about 10 GBs. anyone knows a way for Window7 to see/read the Vista drive in a dual boot laptop?
There's a program out there call "EasyBCD". You should be able to reinstall the vista bootloader and create an entry for Windows 7 as well. Look it up.
I'm running Vista and 7 in a dual-boot laptop, with 7 on a separate partition. When I first started up 7, I couldn't see the Vista partition in My Computer. If that's your problem, it's just that 7 hasn't assigned a drive letter to the Vista partition. Go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management and in there you should be able to find a drive volume that's the same size as your Vista drive/partition, but it isn't labeled. Right-click on it and assign it a drive letter, and then you should be able to see it in My Computer and access the information on it from 7.
That is going to Flop just like vista and all the other Shamesoft products in 2009 Hahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
Although it took what seemed like an eternity to download due to the high traffic, I am most impressed with this. I was thinking about building a test rig just for this, but decided to use it as my main operating system. I am surprised that it is running better than XP, and my machine is well under specifications for Ultimate edition. I got a 2.36 ghz pentium D with 512mb of ram and onboard Nvidia graphics and it is running aero and multiple programs without a hitch. It is even running Doom 3 faster than my xp pro ever did. So far I have no gripes at all with this. I just hope that they do some kind of program for legitimate owners of Vista that upgraded and now this gem comes out..... I was never a Vista "hater" but I damn sure wasn't blown away by it. Has anyone messed with their backgrounds yet? You can use multiple pictures with it and have them change however often you want them too. That is slick, since I always have such a HARD time figuring out which pinup girl I want.
