Windows 7 Beta – Installed!

So I’ve finished installing the Windows 7 beta. It is running very well. Especially for being on my shitty laptop. I really like some of the new features like the side by side window stuff and how you can shake a window to minimize everything else. Some pretty cool new features. I’ve also not run into any compatability issues. Everything seems to just… work.

Windows 7 Beta – The Downloading

Microsoft recently released a beta for their upcoming operating system Windows 7. Shortly after release they had to take down the .iso because the demand was killing their servers. Well now everything looks like its been sorted out and I am about 50% through downloading the disk image and I already got my key.

I am going to be doing a clean install on my laptop, because I dont really have anything important on there and clean installs are generally better from my experience. The only shitty part is that the beta only lasts till August 1st after which I’ll have to reinstall Vista. Because its on my laptop it doesnt really matter to me so lets do this!
