Ok, I had reached the limit and decided to download Windows 7 and upgrade. I had nothing to loose, because the current situation wasn't working either. The download was quick, it's all over the place and I decided to upgrade the current machine. I took a long time, the 'This can take a few minutes' messages turned out to be hours.. but the result was excellent. Everything was nicely migrated, the feel was quick and snappy. The few applications that I use seem to work, except for connecting to other machines in my home network, but this got solved by rebooting once again.
I've been working with Windows 7 for a few hours and I have to say, this Beta is already heaps better than Vista ever was (and probably will be). Well done Microsoft.. There are a few issues that are bugging me, Microsoft you are confusing me... Try to keep stuff simple..
- What are accelerators? Actually I don't need to know..
- What is the idea behind Libraries?
- How to I get rid of this Homegroup thing? Right click - Delete doesn't seem to work..
Further there are of course some smaller bugs and incompatibilities. Microsoft if you are reading this, please supply me with a Product Key so I can give some additional feedback.
