    Ran well in a VM, just a rough guide:

    My vista (32 bit) scores are 5.9 for pretty much everything except disk speed which is 5.4.

    W7 running in a vm on the same vista scored it 5.1 for everything except GFX = 1.0 but disk access was 5.8.

    Memory use on boot 350-400mb (with 1gb allocated). Current vista setup uses 1.2gb.

    Seems to be what Vista should have been.

    I know it's only a pre release but can we refrain from talk of getting MS products through unofficial channels please. I have edited several posts.

    I'm interested to know information on memory use and just how low a CPU you can get away with

    Looks like Vista all over on my VPC, will wait for the RC for a proper eval.

    Why? its the only real way of getting it and Microsoft don't seem to mind so much.

    Had a go myself and it seems they have managed to speed up the operating system alot and reduce the memory foot print. Exactly what Vista should have been.

    Looks a lot like Vista...
    Slightly tweaked UI's (Paint, Wordpad, Control Panel Apps...)
    More UAC options..
    Preferred the "Windows Button" in Vista when Vista was booting, Win7 now just has a progress bar..

    Need a copy to test the more important aspect - performance, compatibility, etc..

    Starting to remind me of Windows ME

    If Micro$oft have any morals, they won't charge more than about £35 for this Vista upgrade.

    Under any normal circumstances it would be Vista R2 but they're trying the usual business trick... if it ain't working change the branding and hope for the best
