Once the official Windows 7 beta was released, I downloaded the ISO and applied for a key, with the plan of trying it out on the HP Mini and if that went well, the Dell at home.
Straight to the point: it’s excellent.
- snappy, shell feels much more responsive
- nice touches with the libraries
- the new taskbar/start menu/task switcher is cool – not too disruptive
- Networking seems more reliable
- New calculator!
Lowlight: the microphone doesn’t work and the webcam driver renders the view pretty darkly.
