Review of Windows 7 beta
I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a Win7 beta, but I just haven’t had the time (or the spare hardware) to make it happen. But since I want you, the reader, to know what’s good, bad, and ugly about MS’s newest offering, I am just importing the opinions of others. In the below post, Adrian Kingsley-Hughes lays it down for ZDNet.
Adrian cites a major performance boost as 7’s primary appeal. I guess they learned from Vista’s mistake. In addition, the new features and eye candy get a rather uninspiring “meh.” I’m not sure I will agree – I’m a big fan of the eye candy. However, like most Vista users, I am willing to lose the visual effects for performance (that said, my current Vista box is rather speedy).
Anyway, read up. I think there are still some beta licenses out there if you want to download it.
