Windows 7

40 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here downloaded or is running the beta of Windows 7? Niels Bohr posted in another thread that he is running it on a virtual machine. From what I have read about it, it is supposed to be what Vista should have been, only better. If Microsoft can pull this one off, it could be a home run. Thoughts, ideas, experiences etc? I know this isn't political but...........

I have. I had an issue with my previous version, and the only way to fix it seemed to be download a new version.

Worked a treat..no issues whatever.


I can explain it to you. But I can't understand it for you.

I'm just finishing my download from Microsoft now. Where did you get yours and do you have version 7000? How did you set it up to run, clean install, upgrade from Vista etc? I need to figure out what to do with this and if I am smart enough to make it work. :lol:

I have heard about this breakthrough software.... :wacko:

Heard the same thing about Vista and it has been pretty good so far. Keep in mind that Vista was years in the making, behind XP, with all the security issues and service packs.

If Vista was only a stop-gap, there will be lawsuits.

Microsoft = money hungry. It will burn them in the end.

I read somwhere that MS will suspend support for Vista before XP. It seems like Vista was a stop-gap, but MS sounds like they are downplaying it. Check out Windows 7, I just hope that it doesn't follow the usual MS pattern, rushed out, full of bugs and takes a year to get things working smoothly. I guess if you believe in the tooth fairy, anything is possible.

You mean MS might catchup to the stability and performance of OS X 10.1?

You overwrote Vista? Can you go back to it? What about licensing?

I just stick with the operating system that comes with the computer. I personally like XP better than Vista. My PC at home is XP, but my laptop is Vista. I couldn't get it with XP and was stuck with Vista.

I don't plan to upgrade, especially if it costs more money. Betas? No way Jose. I'll let people with lots of time on their hands play guinea pig for Microsoft.

My computers work just fine the way they are. If it ain't broken...don't fix it.


"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

Ha, just about every computer maker in existence highly recommends Vista, they have to, to stay in business. Also tried my best to buy a new computer with XP with it's zillions of service packs, none available. But the backroom talk at these computer manufacturers tech support places, is that Vista sucks.

What the heck, it's a free download, thanks for bringing this up, first mistake that I always make is trying to download stuff with Firefox, can't do that with MS, have to use IE, but I got two different product keys, but better use that one that came with IE. Then I am suppose to know how to deal with an .iso file and burn a CD? Holy cow. Haven't burned one yet, but beginning to wonder how many CD's it will take to burn a 2.7 GB .iso file, I only have a stack of a hundred.

Reason for doing this? Do have an idle computer that has a purchased XP Pro on it, made the bad mistake of trying Pro on an older computer first, and of course, have to download upgrades for it on day one. While it worked for almost a year, MS said it was invalidating my license for one computer use only. Can't argue that, but know some that have taking six months or more plus plenty of writing. I just went out and purchased a new computer with XP on it. But will try it on that older computer, still meets the requirements. But will be my luck they block seven as well, maybe will just say the heck with it. Can't really believe MS would provide anything for free.

It's a beta version, just released to the general public yesterday. I have been following it recently and have read lots of good things about it. You can't burn it to a CD, you must burn it to a singole DVD. You must burn it as an ISO image. Check your software. If it can't do it, there are good free burning programs available. Chech out all the infromation at Microsoft before you intstall it. If you have a secondary computer it use it on, that is great, no risk at all to your data. Don't worry about which product key you use, there were only 10 or 12 different ones. The Windows 7 license will expire on Aug. 1, 2009.
