Yeah, I love it too. When USB 3 comes out, I'm going to build a whole new computer with Win. 7 and USB 3, it'll be a beast of a computer...

You should write that in the "Windows 7 beta testers, how do you like it and why?" thread.

Hi bryguy178,

That?s great that you?re enjoying the Beta. What kind of a rig are you running it on? What kind of computing are you doing on it?

Cheers,
Ron

I've been running it on my Dell Latitude D630 laptop. 2GB of RAM, 2.4 core 2 duo processor and the hard drive is 5400RPMs. I've been using VMware Player to virtualise Windows 7 and to my amazement has been running very fast.

I did a stress test to check Windows 7's speed. I ran Windows Vista Enterprise (main), Debian Live (VM), Windows XP Professional (VM) and Windows 7 Ultimate (VM). My hard drive worked 100% and Windows 7, out of the other three being virtualized, worked the fastest. Windows XP went into a halt and Debian Live was just a little slow. I was amazed to see Windows 7 managing its resources correctly.

And yes I am aware that your question has been directed to bryguy178, but still. Since you're in the Windows Team you might as well know how the product is going. Happy

Hi FrankQC and orlbuckeye,

Thanks for the info, guys. I?m always down to hear what systems people are trying Windows 7 on, it?s part of the fun about doing this. I?m actually running it on a Dell M1330 laptop and seeing pretty nice results ? haven?t been running it on any of my other rigs yet.

FrankQC ? sounds like you put it through some pretty good ?real-world? paces, glad it?s keeping up with you.

Cheers,

Question about Windows 7
by FrankQC / March 18, 2009 6:40 AM PDT

I heard that Windows 7 will focus also on parallel computing i.e. virtualisation. Is this true?

It would be fun to have an operating system that focuses on what I like to do. Vista is alright but since it hogs a lot of resources and hard drive you're restricted as to what you can virtualize.

Questions about Windows 7
by RonS [WINDOWS-TEAM] / March 19, 2009 7:06 AM PDT

Hi FrankQC,

While Microsoft hasn?t really came out and said much in this area, there has been some talk going around. I?d recommend keeping up with the Windows 7 Team blog here for the latest: http://windowsteamblog.com/blogs/windows7/default.aspx.

Anyone else want to share what systems they?re running Windows 7 Beta on? Any thoughts?

Cheers,
Ron

Runs well here...
by John.Wilkinson / March 19, 2009 9:15 AM PDT

Though considering it is a self-built AMD PhenomII quad-core with 8GB of RAM I am really not surprised. Wink

On the other hand, nice to see it runs better than Windows Vista on an older Pentium 4 rig with 512MB of RAM and integrated graphics. Still not quite as fast as Windows XP on the same machine, but not a significant difference either.

I now have run the Win& and I must be honest IT IS THE BEST DARN OS TO DATE!!! I Think Microsoft is getting a real perl here. This they should have done after XP. But I still like the vista, but this OS kick ***!!
Thanks MS this is what we have been waiting for.

@RBS,

Are you running the 32 or 64-bit? What are you running it on? Let me know, I?m still interested to see what kind of results people are getting with different machines.

Ah that would explain it.

I'd run a few operating systems on that. Depending if my video card can handle it.

Cool cool. Is it HD editing? Silly

not yet. My camera can't do it. But the nex will be an HD camera. Plus I love to wach movies on my computer in HD.
As I said I have always believe that, more is better. I have almost always hade max ram that I could squeze in to a MB. I hade the first hacked computer that had 4 megs sims, in 1989, You should have seen the inside of the computer it had so many wire it looked like a crows nest.. Me and some of my fellow hackers (Then a hacker was a good guy). We has hacking motherboards and other hardware to get them to work faster and get more out of them, like more memory and so on. It was a fun and exiting time. and buy did we go thru hard ware most of the time we get them direct for the companie and some even gave us them for free and if we did somthing to speedup or something that would help them we send it bash or we send then a file, Internet hade not realy started up called up an BBS (BulletinsBoard) No tollfree numbers. but we hade an 9600Buard modem. WOW!!
