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.

Hi Bob...

Please see my PM, if you haven't already. :)

Best Regards...

Hi all...

I am writing this from my new Windows 7 Beta install on VirtualBox! Yay!!! :D :) :D

The installation process was extremely quick and effortless! :o I do have some initial opinions that I would like to share with Microsoft but need to play around more before I really form an impression. :)

May God Bless all of you! :)

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

Can't really say for sure it depends on what you like and what you are looking for I would say try all the Os's but it would be hard because you would most likely have to buy a Mac unless a friend/family member/work place has one already. Personally I do not like the Mac so its a toss up right now between Windows (Xp/7) and Ubuntu right now as im typing im in the OS Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex and am really liking this Distro of Linux but I cannot wait for windows 7 to make it market so I can pick up a copy =)

EDIT: How are you liking Windows 7 ardvark? as I said before I loved it when I was using it but it ran to slow under Microsoft Virtual PC 2007

Hi Justin...

There are some aspects I do like, like the ability to better control the UAC through its own configuration window. :) At least from a visual point of view (or "look and feel,") it follows very closely to Vista.

May God Bless you! :)

Unfortunately running any OS on a virtual machine doesn't really do justice to that Operating System.  :)
