Windows 7 Beta

Installed it as dual boot with vista on a machine with 3 gigs of ram, and I personally like it. Definitely faster than vista, and looks better too. Love the new taskbar. When I free up some space on my main machine (got it 4 years ago, only has 70 gigs of hard drive space - yuck, yes I know - but thankfully I'm getting a new computer soon) I'll try it as a dual boot with XP. Also, if any of you know if booting 7 from an external hard drive (usb) is possible, could you let me know? Wouldn't actually do it myself, just curious.

I installed it to my MAME cabinet & it works fast.

 

Keeps saying my copy isn't genuine every minute too.

That's odd. Which key did you use?

 

The first one for 32-bit

 

Check your date/time. Mine randomly set itself to 2010 for some reason.

Mine is doing that also, Should I re-install it again and try a different key?

vista was being a d!ck and would not let me partition my hard drive no matter what I tried. so I just did the upgrade. so far so good.

A clean format + install (not update) has solved every issue I was having from my first install (update from vista 64 ultimate).

Yup, that's what I'm thinking too. This is what Vista should have been.

Absolutely. Now, I'm not totally fed up with Vista, as I can live with it. But you are right - 7 is what Microsoft should have released 2 years ago. I'm just glad that Microsoft managed to get it right this time. Dang I really need to free up some space so I can run it on my own machine...

I started running this the day it went up, and thus far I'm pretty impressed. I did manage to somehow completely break IE8, but i went back into it's settings and set everything back to default and it fixed itself. Overall, it's very well set up, and overall a very good experience. I did notice a few quirks here and there, but that's to be expected from beta software.
