I just installed build 7000 on my laptop last night out of bordom.
i really like the new lil bits here and there + it works
Its on technet btw now but not volume licensing downloads.
Not tried it yet.
Not been that bored for some time :)
Hadn't really paid a lot of attention to Windows 7 development at all.
I saw the article in the second link first, and was surprised to see that as soon as this July you'll be able to buy new systems with the rights for a free upgrade to Windows 7 when it is finally launched - surprised because I didn't realise we were that close to the next OS, and because it means that quite a lot of folk will effectively leap-frog Vista all together.
AND, now that cat's out the bag, folk will delay purchasing new hardware to take up that option - just what the hardware vendors didn't need in tough times! :eek:
