Have any of you tried it.
Windows Seven is FAST.
Apparently it's not only a fast OS, but it's in speedy development as well, slated for a January 14th 2009 Beta 1 test, which may or may not be public.
Any other Windows 7 testers here?

Yes, me.

Despite a few, minor compatibility issues, it does the job for me.
I'm in love with the new Taskbar.

I hope Win-7 is a whole lot faster/better than Vista. When my Vista-powered laptop bit the dust, I picked up a $379 netbook to hold me over until I can buy a full fledged laptop. Lemme tell ya: WinXP on a 1.6 GHz Celeron actually does run faster than a 2.2 GHz DuoCore on Vista.

So... If Win-7 is actually a FAST operating system, I'll get it. Otherwise, I'm hanging on to my netbook until I can afford a Mac.

how do i become a beta tester?
You search 'Windows 7 Build 6956' on Google, find a torrent, burn it to a DVD, and install it.

The official beta will only get released in 2009, but in the meantime, it's nice to have a laptop that can run properly.

You attend an event for developers such as WinHEC, or you download an ISO and use it for 30 day (at which point another one will probably be leaked anyways)


Sure is Windows Vista SP2 around here... <3
Actually it's more along the lines of Vista SE. It's bascially Vista without a lot of the stuff that slowed it down. It's VERY fast.

Windows 7 was designed in mind to work fast on PCs ranging from netbooks to high-end desktops. Apparently it runs better than XP on netbooks like the EEEPC.

It's not a major kernel revision like Vista was for XP, so it has pretty much the same compatibility as Vista.

Yeah, you should be able to dual boot it.

Guide for it, its for XP and Vista, but the concept is the same.

A question to anyone who is using it: does it have the compatibility that XP does? That's the only reason why I hate Vista, I can't get any of my f-ing applications to run... Even with the bullshit compatibility wizard...

Vista runs just as fast on the same hardware that I play with Windows 7 on~
Windows 7 is Vista + More, not Vista - Less, btw.

HUURRRRRR...derpderpderp.
Yes, it magically goes back to being Windows XP! They threw out Vista and just re-released XP with a new GUI; that's right.

No. Just no.
It runs the same things Vista does, in the same way. Though I can't imagine that's an issue; I've never had ANY application that works on XP 64 refuse to work on Vista 64. Time to dump that 16 bit rubbish, imo

And your point? I don't think microsoft is going to care if people are testing out their beta programs without signing up. As long as its not the full official version anyway.

Just a word of warning.
You can't dual boot XP and Seven.
Seven WILL corrupt your XP's pagefile and make it unusable.
This isn't a problem for Vista though.

I wasn't planning on dual booting. I'll wait to get a newer PC and internets anyhow.

If I put it on a completely separate physical HDD, we still have the same problem then?
