Windows 7 Build 7000
There, I just got it installed on my MacBook Pro (yeah i know latest windows 7 on latest MacBook Pro ironic huh) lol.
And i must say, for Windows this is PRETTY GOOD. Really fast, nice to look at, functional.
Basically, to me, Windows 7 is Windows XP with a Vista Skin and a lot of kernel improvements.
I am definitely not thinking of switching to a Windows computer (hardcore Mac FanBoy here) but this is a huge improvement and i am glad to see that when i need to use windows i can finally do it in peace .
Anybody else played with Windows 7 ?
linux is the best...
sorry i had to say it, I have used windows and mac before and linux has been the best
I have the beta, but have yet to install it and test it. .

I use all three - have a triple boot on this machine - and i must say while i think MacOSX is way better than any Windows iteration, Linux is not comparable as I see it in another category.
i use it extensively because of its ease of programming and open source community.
I have used both and linux has had the least amount of trouble and the best performance, and the crazyiest thing is... ITS ALL FREE!!!

Glad to see you happy.
Hey what are the system requirements to run W7? Is it really that much better thab Vista? To tell you the truth I don't like Vista's functuality and performance when it comes to comparing it to XP. If this is indeed XP with the Vista UI I would be more than happy to run this OS. This should be finished by 2010 I assume.

Win7 is AMAZING but i still prefer MacOSX.
i would love to try the beta how can i get my hands on it?
To be honest, google it or have a friends that's involved in the Microsoft developers program.

I just read through those links you posted and W7 sounds promising to me even though it is still under its beta stages.This will definetely be the Windows OS to run when it comes to selecting if it still continues its path to performance.

running it on Bootcamp. I use to SWEAR by Parallels and Fusion but now i find Bootcamp to be MUCH MORE reliable.

What i wanted to point out is that EVERYTHING worked perfectly with Win7 and I have to say im impressed.
Maybe your laptop doesnt meet the min requirement (does it ?) because ive installed it now on my friends windows laptop and its never slow (same on my MBP).
