At home with Windows 7

After messing with Betas of Vista (urgh..... shudder shudder)... the arrival of the Win7 beta DVD on my desk was put off somewhat.
Well... after all the reading of the various blogs (www.winsupersite.com mainly - cheers Paul), I dared to give it a roll. Impressed doesnt even come close... under Vista betas, I was expecting a fight with drivers. Nope - all there! Its quick too - very quick, not just in installation - but full use. In fact, after a week, Im using it as my primary OS on my laptop rather than the Vista SP2 which Im also trialing.
So... what does all this mean?? Well... I know I wont be installing Vista at work now. Why bother, when I know that a few months later - Ill have to deal with 7. Also, 7 has so far not bugged the hell out of me with UAC and application issues. The App Compat wizard in 7 seems more refined and helpful.
Next stop, put this in the SCCM console which Im also playing with (see other blog posts) - which should be fine as they are kinda the same. Then I can give it a roll with some of the Network software.
Right - now off to Saturday night drinking!
Blog and out!
