Hello,

For someone who is used to vista (aero, aero flip, transparencies) They might consider windows 7 a bit boring but for me they added enough Eye candy to make it pleasing to look at and not effect resources or make it overwhelming.

Hi Justin...

I finally got registered and logged in and am downloading 2.44 GB's by dial-up. Good thing there is a download manager that comes with it! :P ;D

Best Regards...

-= Hope it would be better than Vista.. Vista is a little too resource hog, asks a lot "Will you really.. delete this.. blah blah.. etc." and most programs that I need weren't compatible to it.. XP is still better in performance.. But Vista's Aero is really alluring.. Yet, 7 was said to be faster & better.. Then, I saw Mac.. Then Ubuntu.. Then..

    I can't decide.. Haha.. What would be the best OS..?

I'd say everyone has to decide for himself, but for the moment i will stay with Microsoft  ;)

And I can say Win 7 is really great!  :)

I could send you a DVD. or, you can download it from MySharedFiles.
It's in the Windows7Beta Folder.
Make sure you use a download manager.  (Gigaget is what I use and it's free.)  :)

Hi Bob...

Thank you for your kind offer but I would feel more comfortable, legal wise, going Microsoft's route, even though their downloads are no longer possible. :)

May God Bless you! :)

Since I'm only offering you the opportunity to download a beta, there isn't any legal issue to contend with but,
the choice is yours.
