    While I to like how much more nippy it feels and how well it runs in a VM I must say the new features such as aero shake are ridiculous. I'd like a new version of aero or something of that nature

    Its also very nice to see you can burn ISO images, without needing more software built into windows 7 by the looks of it..

    and the file transfer seems to be much faster then XP.. might just be me. but i just copied the windows 7 buld 7000 iso image from my laptop (running xp) on to a memory stick. then copied it from memory stick to PC running Windows 7 build 6956 and it was much faster.

    Getting to like it even more

    Isn't copying large files from a memory stick always quicker than to a memory stick anyway? Nothing to do with the OS, just the processes going on in the memory stick.

    that's how it is for me in XP and Vista too... SSD's are quicker read than they are write too aren't they?

    Do the early builds have that 'peek' feature they were tooting and the new calculator?

    I want a grahpical defrag interface just like 95/98s hypnotic squares. It was stangely tranquil and let you know exactly where you system was in it's progress. I hate Vistas' lack of feedback about anything related to defragging.

    I agree, there was a calming effect to the older fragmentation programs, you'd probably need to use pixels for block now though given the size of modern hard drives.

    Can you upgrade a Vista box to the 7000 build?

    I want to give the Media Centre upgrade a spin on my media PC but can't be bothered doing a clean install at the moment.

    I've downloaded build 7000, and installed on VM, looks good.

    Hello from Windows 7

    It took a good few hours, but it was happy enough to upgrade my Vista laptop and all drivers etc intact!

    The new start menu is going to take a lot of getting used to, as is the transparent full screen title bars!
