you can change it so it's like Vista or XP. But I like it a lot better. A lot more like the Object Dock on Mac OSX. A lot easier to organize what windows you have minimized and maximized.

This OS is incredible. Already way better than Vista and it's only a beta build. I'm keeping it until the next beta or RC hits.

I can't wait to see some die-hard Vista fans reactions. Truth be told, Vista was garbage - but Windows 7 is amazing.

nope - would be impossible. You could use the extra GB for a ram disk though!

Crainger you have to try windows 7 - even if it means less ram! It's amazing how much more polished a beta version can feel over a full fledged os. And that even zoomy thinks it's awesome already says something!

IMPORTANT: To those who want to try out Windows 7 - MAKE SURE TO INSTALL YOUR DRIVERS AS ADMINISTRATOR(right-click -> run as administrator) you'll otherwise run into a lot of problems.

yah, same here. But for the most part Windows 7 detected all of my hardware. The only thing I installed was new graphics drivers.
