    Yea right. When have YOU ever heard of a virus with system requirements like that? Most virus writers go for speed and a small size so it's harder to notice. Or at least they used to. I accidently used a hard drive killing app once and it loaded a hell of a lot faster than the outlook program it would have used to spread itself.

    Does it seem less bloated and faster than vista? I mean that's not hard to beat.
    Haha, Try that. Installing now. Will report findings :P

    It runs smooth as a baby's butt here. Running on a 2.4 single core p4, 2GB ram, and a x1300 graphics card.

    Been running it for a few days now exclusivly and have no real complaints.

    It looks and feels like a cleaner version of Vista to me. I dig the new task bar and its behavior. Dragging windows up left or right is a nice feature too.

    Its gunna be hard going back to vista after the testing is done.

    I can't wait for the new version, and will upgrade when the final build is available.

    Actually...

    The first thing I usually do when I install is switch to the classic themes and try to bring back memories I had of my good ol' 95.

    I gave up on the 64bit, will see what the 32bit does under emulation. The 64bit thinks my setup is inferior.

    Told you that Microsoft is a predictable conspiracy. These are the people who mass marketed MS Project, SQL and team oriented Visual Compilers but they can't handle changelogs and patches like the kernel folks for Linux does. People can't even install correctly but yet their main focus is DRM. It's obvious. Someone's media server has been scanned and cataloged but yet they been distracted with eye candy.

    On my system...windows says it is loading files. The bar goes from left to right. Next, the screen shows a faint microsoft splash screen. Less than a second I get a machine_check_exception. So I plug this into google. I found little about windows 7 but it did mention not to overclock, check memory and burn cd at slower speeds. Then again, its beta
