anyone able to send me an DVD for W7 (and a key!)
I can tolerate the XP one, hate the vista one. But I prefer the Classic.
I remove Help and Support, and have a shortcut to the 5 most used apps in the quicklaunch, and the other 5 at the top of the start menu.
I also use the windows classic theme.
latest available build is 30 day activation, but some versions have the ability to disable this.
Finally installed Win7 on a VPC - so far so good
runs nicely with 1GB ram
No Aero but prob cos its VPC.. will burn ISO to DVD and try on a suitable PC at work...
I Have the new build also, again on a VPC and runs fairly well.. but like gatt said i have a spare machine here so think i install it on there and see how it runs on a Pentium D with 2gig ram =]
Just started installing it on a spare PC in the office...
Just installed the beta on Hyper-V... bit of a letdown really imo
Seems like it's Vista... for dummies with a cheap looking taskbar
Feels OK in performance although only true way to tell would be to install it on one of our old Sempron boxes
Can't see anything that says "wow must have that", really it's a rather cynical Vista SP2 rebrand at the moment, hope it gets better further down the line...
I think it would be funny if business/education give it the same backlash as they did Vista and XP still stays king. Would be interesting to see how Microsoft would respond to it.
A "useful" feature - they've added "power button action:" drop down the the start menu properties - rather than havign to hunt through the power applet to change it!
Finally seen sence and added the Screen Res to the Desktop Context Menu..
seems speedy on a P4 with 2GB ram - which was sluggish with Vista, though it failed to detect my NIC which Vista didn't have an issue with!
