Default Re: Windows 7 Beta available 1/9/09

Not having much fun with Windows 7 so far, getting random blue screens which don't even last long enough for me to read them.

Systems worked flawlessly with XP and Vista so I don't see how it's hardware related. Not too pleased and at this rate I won't be buying a copy.

You running the beta or the RC? RC is rock stable for me.

Now that retail is available, should this remain a sticky?
