    Windows 7

    Windows 7 is on a lot of people's minds.

    will it be the next big thing for microsoft, or is it going to be another version of "the V word".

    one thing is for sure, it definitely looks like the very graphical user interfaces are here to stay:


    with the reviews on the current public beta looking pretty good and microsoft's design strategy getting turned on its head, windows 7, at the very least, is looking to be a major improvement on vista.

    a few extra links I found:
    windows chief opens up on '7'

    Windows 7 build 6956 performance test

    number of benchmarks in different progs amongst vista, 7 and XP SP3

    so what is your take on Windows 7?

    Love the Mac advert
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    nah, never had that problem. I hear the cure is to buy more apple stuff, and when asked why it's better than a PC, explain how "it just feels better"

    Funnily I don't own any apple stuff, I just start playing a game on my window machine and realise how awful it must be for non-windows machines to play those great games (I would list them but there are just so many, but the obvious C.O.D. 4, CSS, CS 1.6, Warcraft, Warhammer etc.)

    If you have the bandwidth (and the patience) you can try out the new windows from a beta download here:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...-download.aspx

    hahaha, funnily enough I've been reading up that the mac is starting to support gaming. take a look on amazon.com or the likes and just type in "mac" plus any one of those titles. I'm sure you'll don the tin foil hat and say the end is nigh just like I did

    those testing it seem to be enjoying themselves. I haven't read a bad review on it yet. but then again, they are comparing it to vista (whichever version), which already has had its name dragged through the mud.

    I eat my hat! Mac/apple supporting mainstream games! The end of the world as we know it is certainly nigh!

    Microsoft extends Windows 7 beta download deadline

    well, it appears Microsoft has been really into pushing deadlines later and later.

    They probably have a rough number in mind as to how many Beta downloads they want out there. Remember, it's not about previews to amp it up - it's about guinea pigs to test the software
