...and I'm lovin' it so far.
Anybody else tried the beta version of Windows 7 yet?
Massive improvement on Vista methinks, even though, there's only been a few under the hood adjustments and a small facelift, things are working so much better than Vista, even tho I must confess, I never really had a problem with Vista, this is soo much better from the inside out.
For example, Search on Vista (and XP) used to involve indexing and all sorts of other useles features, it was slow and groggy, and now, without indexing at all, the search is at least five times faster.
I have heard good things about Windows 7. I'm glad I stuck with xp and avoided the whole vista "experience" lol. Windows 7 will be a good os at about Sp2 imho. I'll wait for Sp2 of the the final realease and put my xphome SP3 to bed
For 1 week i tried to get virtualbox running my host OS's at "normal speed" on windows 7 enterprize final release, but no, always very slow graphically. The same virtual machines worked fine in previous version of vista sp2 and now on server 2008 r2. I'm giving this one a miss until service pack 1, i dont think microsoft could even hit the nail on the head until sp1/2 of any OS.
I read that MS were concentrating on continuous upgrades, to get over the fact that "wait till SP2".
The SP. if available will only be a packaged bundle of upgrades from a set point in time.

I know of two people who have bought BRAND NEW Dell laptops with Win7, and their wireless connection just doesn't work. Both using the RJ45/plug socket thingy solution.
They've both had Dell technicians log on remotely to the machines, and nothing. I've been through both of them, can't see a thing wrong.
Anyone else experienced this?
Now it's been 3 or 4 months, so maybe there's been another driver release.
Oh, Wireless cards are Intel.
