Windows7..What do you think?
So since the release of Windows 7 BETA build 6801 i have had a small amount of time to play around with it.
I must say i do like it quite alot, some really nice new technical features and front end GUI / ease of use features.
What do you guys think?

Its what Vista should have been IMO.

I see Vista as public BETA for 7 perhaps ..?

Pretty much, Windows 7 benefits from being based on Vista and using the same drivers effectivly having almost three years to mature.

Warning!! Windows 7 love-in alert!
I really don't see what the fuss is about......it looks like Vista, it smells like Vista, it's Vista R2 but the marketing dept. wisely want to emphasise it as something 'new'.
IS there much that's really new and improved and different, it just appears to be a case of modifying the stuff about Vista that pi££ed people off, while retaining the bloated look and feel and all important driver compatability....
that'll convince the enterprise to ditch windows 2000/XP..
where's the innovation ? Windows 7 is just windows vista after-sales.
ZFS read/write support alone in the OSX 10.6 is far more interesting than anything Microsoft will announce about Windows 7 in the next 12 months.
More details on Windows 2008 R2 equals interesting...particularly if it relates to hyper-v and server core, Windows 7 news equals

Not overly bothered but how do I go about getting the Beta?

I'll wait for the finished one before casting judgement, as my main issue with Vista is its poor performance, and you not going to see its true performance in beta's.
All i want is the performance of XP, clean interface of XP, LESS Wizards and "You've moved the mouse, are you sure you want to move the mouse" style treatment.

If it looks like Vista and feels like Vista then Mr. Average who shelled out £££ on a Vista upgrade won't buy 7 unless it's free \ ridiculously cheap... that alone is a big problem for MS.
As for businesses... guess the question remains "what does it do better than what we've got?"

This is getting very close to being against forum rules as it is not technically legal but I would suggest appending the words "torrent bay" to your search for windows 7. This should yield promising results.

[Whisper] Windows 7 BETA 1 build 7000 is now available.. [/Whisper]
Anyway, yh i have been running Pre-Beta Build 6956 on my main computer at home, and i must say its looking very promising.. if M$ keep this up they might actually do very well this time.. but we shall see.
oh and it installed all my drivers for me.. which was a shock!... as Win Vista didn't do that.

I've been running the PDC 2008 copy on my primary desktop, but I am just about to install Beta 1. To describe it in one word - fantastic.
