Default Re: Windows 7

Well, I fell for it, I am now downloading build 6956. I hope it all goes well. Shold let me dual boot with Vista. I am going to try and get Vegas to work. It works for some people on vista, and others not. It only uses 25% of 2gb... thats pretty good. my computer is using 69% of 4gb right now... and I am not doing that much. Vista is really slow, lol.

I'm going to keep 7 as long as I can. Vista on my laptop takes about 3 minutes to boot where as 7 takes about 35 seconds to boot. The only issue I had was sometimes my wireless network connection gets dropped.

Well, I tried installing today... it took about 30 minutes of unpacking files to give me an error and say it wouldnt work... I think I will just wait for the real beta to come out on the 1st right?

unpacking the files during setup. It was only 2.3gb too, and you had said like 3gb I think, so maybe it wasn't quite right...
