The Task bar looks quite alot like Mac but still simmiar to Vista. I do, however, really like the loading screen on 7.

From the screenshots I've seen it just looks like it's taken all the worst bits of vista and chucked them into together in a giant mixing bowl, baked for 45 minutes and produced a soggy, tasteless cake of UGLY. But I suppose I can't pass judgement without trying it. So, I'm downloading it now. When I've tried it out, I'll be able to REALLY hate it :p

I've been running it on my tablet for a month. It's pretty decent for the most part. I never used Vista, so I can't really compare on that account, but this one runs pretty well.

The taskbar is the best of all improvements, it really makes things faster and nicer :) I love it.

So far, I like the beta quite a bit. Of course, it's buggy as all get out. but visually, I like it. It's also quite a bit faster than Vista.

What bugs have you found? I'm just curious, as I've found very few so far. Sometimes the Adobe plugin doesn't work well with IE8 (it stops working until I restart IE), and sometimes my desktop randomly flashes on top of windows, but it's just a minor annoyance.

One of the guys over at the [H] Forum did some benchmarks comparing 64-bit XP, Vista, and 7.

Interesting read. It seems to match up with my experiences. 7 builds on Vista with additional performance improvements.

I like it. The new taskbar takes some getting used to, but seems to be better. The new Media Center is cool. Otherwise it looks like Vista.

I made a topic about it a month or two ago when it was still pre-beta I believe.
I've been using it for a long time (imo) and I like it.

I would download and install it, if I had access to the computer that no one is using, and is sitting next to my computer but for some reason my dad won't let me use it. Seriously, I used it for a while while I didn't have this computer (woot for bad grades) and ever since I got my comp back, it has set next to it taking up space.ANYWAYS.

I'm not going to EVER install it on this computer I believe. I have to many important things, and I don't want to have an epic fail of epicness when I install it =/.

I doubt either one of these computers could run it anyways =/.


I might make a partition on this comp, and try and run it, like I did Vista. But knowing my dad, he'll get pissed like always, and be like WTF YOU PUTTIN ON MEH COMPUTER, btw it's mine, and I'll be like "Windows 7 Beta" and he'll have a heart attack and scream and yell at me for puttin shit I shouldn't put on my comp, even though I have hundreds of programs on my computer *breaths in deeply* yeah.

Its requirements are about the same as Vista, but it does seem to scale better on lower end hardware. It even runs reasonably well with 512 MB of RAM. Why anyone would use 512 MB when RAM costs about $10/GB is beyond me, but at least you know you can. :)

Well, same requirements as Vista, but a few years later :p. That's the difference. Havingm ore RAM is a plus, though. I think there are some memory leaks in the beta as well. I had Windows Journal using 350MB for a 2 page document.. closing it and reopening the document only caused it to use a little under 50MB.

Also, if you only have 512MB chances are you're still using DDR1, which is unfortunately a bitm ore expensive than DDR2 memory. Still, it's worth the investment :p.
