Installing 64 bit version to see how that works..

My system is supposed to be compatible with 64 bit windows so I am installing Windows 7 RC 64 bit to see how that works. With 4Gb of ram that should just work fine. I am really curious. But perhaps it'll just be the same old experience. Will keep you posted.

I think my WIE was let down

I think my WIE was let down by having only 1 1gb hard drive and a plain 9800gt vid card.

seems ok, but I doubt I will migrate from ubuntu to it any time soon.

I noticed its the ultra edition or whatever they call it. reel em in with the full version then ask for payment later....

My gaming rig is nothing compared to yours....

My gaming rig is a duocore E7300, 2Gb Ram, 9800GTX+ Nvidia - could do with a little upgrading I gues....

Well it just behaves and plays like XP but looks like Vista

The security service is less intrusive, the machine responds well - even with 2Gb of ram. Very much like the experience on XP, except for DirectX 10 games performing great.

When 7 comes out for real, I'll probably swap it out for the RC and run 7 instead of XP. No need for any extensive testing on my part. The same stuff that runs on XP I have runs on the Windows 7 RC as well. No problems. Pretty stable windows verion. Liking it way better than Vista.

My laptop only gets 3.5 but that is not surprising with onboard graphics...........

Still runs better than with VISTA though.
