    Remember that this build is from September so there won't be many fun things in it. It's pretty pointless right now.

    Why release a new OS already? What's wrong with Windows 7?

    There's a leaked release of it. Mean it works. Give it a year, maybe two. That's still too fast. OSs are NOT game systems...

    My crappy 1.8GHZ laptop from 2006 can run Windows 7 [​IMG] abeit without aero but i have to admit that 7 was hell of alot faster than Windows XP

    I might snatch this up this week, see if there are any developments first

    Seeing as my copy of Windows 7 has been found to be fake i need to upgrade anyways [​IMG]

    i thought they would change the name from windows 7 to something different cuz i always thought like XP, 7 was a nice revolution to the windows OSs. Maybe they should continue with the numbering.

    Won't get this. Looks like Windows 7 and I FREAKING HATE Windows 7! (with the taskbar and stuff, tried it at my grandma's)
    I'll just stick to my broken Vista laptop [​IMG]

    Yup saw this all over a torrent site while searching for a win7 iso. I'm not going to try it now, but I am going to try and see if this will run in virtual pc or vmware just for the sake of not ruining my entire pc.

    There aint enough differences yet to risk installing a copy.

    I'm hoping there is a public beta again, like for windows 7.

    You can fairly easily tweak the taskbar.

    Why dont they improve on windows 7 instead of working on 8 :/.
    People still use XP, now we are gonna have a even bigger gap.

    More driver issues, etc etc. People complaining about "this" not working with XP, "that" not working with Vista etc etc
