Here you can come discover the comprehensive test of the new operating system of Microsoft : Windows Seven, with many pictures and some videos.
Just Amazing !
has been getting nothing but great reviews. I've heard people on several tech oriented podcasts talk about Windows 7 being better in many ways than the Apple OS.
I'm using the Windows 7 RC and it's great for the most part. I'm still having reliability problems with Windows Media Center, but other than that it's slick. It runs fast and I've not had a single issue since I started using it last week. Also, it's a lot more compatible than Macs.
Nawww they just really want to believe that.
I cannot get the sound to work, I ran a compatability test and it was all ok but does the sound work does it heck, tried all the latest drivers but no joy.
What type of system are you running it on? I had the same problem with my Macbook Pro, but all I had to do was install the boot camp drivers from the OSX Install Disc. If that doesn't work, go to realtek's site and download their audio driver for Vista. Running 64-bit on a Macbook Pro and I'm loving it. MS really did something here....of course, they had to!
thru vmware.. everything worked just fine.. feels a bit more slugish than xp, but it's definitely a great step forward from vista.. 7 is what vista should've been.. i still like os-x smoothness better but 7 has some nice visuals and seems to be working smooth.. What i like is the feeling that MS felt threatened by making a crappy os (vista) and now they made an actual effort to do something good.. MS tend to just make stuff as cheap as possible and hope that people just won't care.. On a site note, i can't wait for snow leopard.. day 1 buy for me
Can't wait for this. Performance means a lot to me. Most new additions that come to operating systems like Vista I will never use. But you cant go wrong with a faster pc.
I reverted back to vista x64 the rc build was great IMO except for 1 thing. My ableton live 7 daw would stutter a bit under load but im sure it will be worked out. I am really looking forward to the final release though. It really seems Microsoft is doing a great deal of public engagement this time around to showcase their new os which is great IMO
....and I thought it was excellent. It was fast, responsive and contained lots of improvements over XP and Vista. But....I'm back using XP SP3 after only 3 days. The reason is that the company that makes Punkbuster refuses to update their program to be compatible with Windows 7, thus rendering any online game that uses Punkbuster unplayable. My main game is CoD4 and I get booted after only 1 minute because these idiots will not update their software. This annoys me greatly as I was really impressed with Windows 7.
Is it as fast as Windows XP?
one with Vista, and one With Windows 7 RC1, and one with XP. Windows 7 is freaking awesome. It is easily better than XP and Vista combined, and it is not even a final product yet. I had 7 on my old pentium 4 pc with only 512mb of ram and it ran better than XP ever did. It downloaded and installed all of the drivers it needed on its own without me even doing anything. I now have a quad core cpu with 2gb of ram and an Nvidia 8600gt (I know its old, but it works great), and a 1tb Hitachi 7200 rpm hard drive. I just got RC1 installed tonight, I had Vista and XP on it for a while now. It is really nice to see that they listened this time. The stuff they have done is top notch, and I cannot wait to see the final product. If you are curious about Windows 7, and you have a spare machine, or a big hard drive, you should try it out. It is amazing.
@Ceekay: Yes it is much faster than windows xp and security is increased, it's the best microsoft's operating system since XP :) ------------------ I can recommend reading the test, it's worth it ;)
