Windows 7 Beta
January 11, 2009 Leave a comment
I tried to get the Windows 7 Beta but failed, like a lot of other people it seems, but I headed over to my favorite bittorrent web site and found a link for it and duly downloaded a copy to try out.
I first tested it out on WMWare and it was ok if a little slow, and then installed it on my MacMini and I have to say that it is pretty nice.
I have not really delved into Windows since I use a Mac exclusively, but recently had to help a friend with a (rapidly rotting) Windows XP installation. I spent some time running some diagnostics but the machine was still acting up. I decided that a reinstall was in order and spent about 6 hours installing Windows XP, and tracking down drivers and such. While somewhat somewhat painful, but it was a useful learning experience, and I decided that I wanted to check into Windows 7.
