Anyone else running Windows 7 Beta?

Post  SonicOrbStudios on Mon Jan 12, 2009 10:10 pm

I just installed the upgrade a few hours ago on my laptop to see how it was and I am quite impressed.

Speed actually seems a little slower than Vista Business at this time but keep in mind this is still in beta (testing) stages so speed will probably get better over time.

All vista drivers seem to work fine in windows 7 which is nice and for a beta I am impressed as I have yet to come across any problems.

It's actually very similar to vista except for a few UI changes. I do hope it will be a little more stable than the original Vista though as that will get more people to quit complaining.

I did notice and like how they chanced the control panel around for the user account control. They now give you 4 different settings compared to on or off so you can now better control the amount of "Are you sure?" popups...

I think the main group of people who complain about vista are the ones who don't know a enough about computers and how to properly set things up. Also a lot of people simply just didnt give it enough time or try the OS at all and just started complaining with others.

Interesting setup. It looks almost just like vista. The most frustrating part of vista was the fact of the "are you sure you really want too" popups but its pretty easy to turn them off. What type of control do they give you besides just turning off the whole thing? It would be nice to leave a few blocks on but the majority off. Vista is and was having problems with updates. The primary thing is the updates were causing vista not to load properly are startup. I had this happen to my system a few times and you have to restore to the point before the update. It is kind of frustrating. If Microsoft is relying more on the older NT code I think that would help the stability of the OS. XP was a great OS after pack 2 and it just needed updated drivers for the futire of video imo.

Did you hear about Steve Jobs over at mac? If he does not return I wonder what will happen to Mac? Maybe they will start releasing their OS to computer builders..lol that would be great Mac would just like windows..lol

This site goes over how the current setup of the UAC is and what choices it currently offers:

I just read it. That is great they have changed that part. I just how they used the NT programmers code in the OS..lol but it looks like vista (which is odd because they always have changed the user interface look in windows OS)

So now it's been out for a while and they have sent out quite a few updates and I am happy to say that it is running quite a bit faster.

I don't really like the whole new toolbar layout at the bottom as it involves more clicking to open windows....but either way, I will probably be sticking with Vista anyways...
