    Windows 7

    Reports of good things about Windows 7 just keep coming from all sides. I think this has to be the first Microsoft OS to actually be popular, even before release. Microsoft even seem to have finally realised that in order to create satisfied customers and users you have to listen to them and understand their needs and dislikes.

    A news item posted this week by PC Pro here highlights this very well, with Microsoft continuing to add a lot of new features, and to continue tweaking or changing existing ones for the better due purely to customer feedback.

    The fact there is a beta of Windows 7 released to the masses is also a first for Microsoft. Before you had to be an official Microsoft registered tester/developer to get your hands on anything before release. This is again a great move in my view.

    So who here has been running the Windows 7 beta? And are your views as positive as everyone else's seem to be so far?

    I've not personally had chance to run the new OS yet. When I get my older currently dead system reserrected I will probably use that to give it a try as it should be up to the task.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Yes, they reached their target of 2 million beta users so removed the download. I'm sure we could still find it at other locations though!

    @Harrison

    If you want a copy I could set it into a queue for you, 64 or 32bit? That would be Build 7057.
