Windows 7 Beta Release Friday

2009/01/08

Tomorrow Microsoft will make Windows 7 beta available for download.  I’m a little skeptical but I think just about anyone who used Vista would be.  To be honestly I haven’t had nearly as many challenges with Vista that many people claim to have especially early in it’s release.  However, I did receive the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) a couple times when trying to upgrade from XP to Vista.

Vista problems seem to have become a popular thing to claim though.  The bad reputation lead to the Windows Mojave commercials being released, which told people they were trying a new version of Windows when it was really Vista.  Basically they found people that had never used Vista but already claimed to dislike it.  They told them they were testing the new Windows OS and of course they all loved it not knowing it was really Vista.  Seems like there are a lot of commercials like this now (the Whopper Virgins). 

I will definitely be trying the Windows 7 beta.  If anything just because I'm curious how it looks.  Microsoft is attempting to talk it up as a leaner, stripped-down OS.  I think this could be a good blog series.  I will write my experiences with the new Windows incase your not willing to give it a shot.

What are your expectations for the new Windows OS?  Also, what problems did you have with Vista?  I think it could be interesting to hear peoples grips about Vista.
