Few days before I downloaded Windows 7 Beta. First impression faster than the Alpha version but still slower than Vista Ultimate. Anyways am not going to compare the two versions but I shall just point out 10 cool features which I really like about Windows 7. If you want to try the beta here is the link to download. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/beta-download.aspx
Updated: 05 May,2009 Microsoft has released Windows 7 RC for public. Get your copy athttp://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/download.aspxDon’t forget to save the Windows 7 key as it’s required for your activation. NB: This is limited download link so don’t blame me if you are late. Also if you have Vista with SP1 you can upgrade it directly. On a broader view you will feel windows 7 as a remake of Vista. Most of the look and feel is same except some design change and some application change. Yap to be mentioned there has been certain architecture change but still the Windows 7 is resource hungry so never try with a week comp which already failed with Vista. Also most of the vista software works with windows 7 and some software even detect windows 7 as vista. :lol Conf. of machine on which I used: * Intel 965 mother board * 2GB DDR2 RAM * WD 500GB Sata II HD * XFX GeForce 8600 GTS 512MB DDR3 Here goes my review. 1.The Awesome Windows 7 Paint:2.The new Windows 7 Power shell and Sticky Note:http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/technologies/management/powershell/download.mspx But remember the windows 7 power shell is V2 and the download link I provided is for V1.
