This article is interesting :
Aye, performance look very promising and potentially confirms people's 'sense' of increased performance and 'snappiness'
For the love of..............
Can we see some pics of the network management center, control panel and task manager?
EDIT: NM, just seen links in the first post
Well with my dealings with Vista laptops im far far far from being impressed.
Windows 7 better be good!
I have a 8Gb desktop coming and i'll be sticking with 32 bit XP because I really dont want to touch Vista...
Then why bother getting a machine with 8GB?
Am I the only one that thinks this looks good?
Props to the OP for posting all those images - every single one I see, it looks like a functionality increase over Vista.
I am in no way bashing vista by the way, just saying this looks ALOT better. I really want to give it a try now too but if I start messing with hard drives on my PC it mucks up the boot record
Because unlike windows, OS X does actually work perfectly all the time.
(My bootcamp installation of XP needs to be redone because it crashed during update and now thinks there is a dll is missing allowing me to do pretty much sod all!)
But that's comparing a ~1yr old version of OS X with a 7+ year old version of Windows. XP 64 and Vista 64 both support 8Gb.
EDIT: Ah, nice edit!
Was it a vLite'd installation?
It would be even better to see if that article give the exact times the processes took for all operating systems for comparison.
didn't realize there was lots of pictures in his post! lol
All this hating, Im wondering how many people have actually tried it!
So far Win 7 seems like a step in the right direction performance wise, and this is coming from someone that loathes Vista!
Has anyone got Administrative Tools working for Windows 7?
Which ones? They all work here.
Terminal Services Manager.
Active Directory Users and Computers.
I am using build 6956.
Ah, the Server adminpak, not the locally installed ones that come with windows? Not got that installed - I just always used RDP to the server if I need them.
Hence my Windows 7 better be good It should be out the same time as Snow Leopard and I'll be using them side by side on a desktop and laptop so we will see what happens.
Nope, nice official Windows XP SP2 disk.
I have a SP3 disk now thanks to my uni so that'll be going on next.
Luckily I guess cos I want to increase the size of that partition to 20Gb so the CAD program will fit on it properly!
Is snow leopard gonna have native PC support?
Mac OS X will never support a PC, because that would be bad for Apple's business. There even appears to be some code included in Mac OS that causes Kernel Panics (crashes) when you're attempting to install it on non-apple hardware.
