    Windows 7

    Anyone else playing with Vista 2.0 - sorry I mean Win7 yet? I've run the 6801 build released at PDC on VMWare on my Centrino laptop and it's surprisingly sprightly! My one gripe is that despite using Rafael Riviera's unlock hack, I can't see the application previews on the new 'superbar'. I guess that's an 'aero' only thing.

    Had quick look after installing it on a 2Y old Toshiba Laptop (CEL440/512MB) and it seemed to run rather well, even ran Areo. Took under an hour to install and liked the option to connect to a wireless network during install.

    Just need to find more time to have a good look.

    Did you just make a post stating that you want to sign up, or did you fill in a form.

    James.

    also has anyone got a link to where u can get the hack from?

    Where on the connect site do you find a link to become a beta tester? I've looked with little success.
