Weak month for wallpapers, eh? I remember these threads being longer. And I usually don't post in them. But here's a new one.

Mine is from here.

Decided to give the new Windows 7 beta a try:



So far, me likey. Boot time from startup screen to desktop was under 30 sec. Bloat is all but gone. I felt no need to trim down services and whatnot (like I had to in Vista), because everything already runs smoothly. Subtle improvements in the interface feel natural and intuitive.

The new taskbar seems to be "borrowing" its design from OSX, but is still good nonetheless. For those who don't like it, you can change it back to the Vista/XP style taskbar.

All 32-bit Vista drivers seem to work well in Win7 for the most part. I initially had problems running setup for my sound card drivers (ASUS Xonar DX), but trying in compatibility mode for Vista fixed that problem.

UAC interferes a lot less. No more "Are you absolutely positively sure you want to do this?" dialogs (something similar be done in Vista by doing the UAC "quiet mode" hack, but this time it's set that way by default).

So far it's proving to be a solid, slick OS. The only thing keeping me from completely abandoning Vista is the fact that it only comes in a 32-bit variety ATM. It's just that good, even for a beta.


/Oh, and not that it matters, but the Performance Index rating system is a lot more accurate now. It correctly identified the hard drive as the bottleneck in my PC, rather than the CPU.

/2
RAM usage is a lot less too, about 300-400MB less.

/3
Even though I dual-booted rather than upgraded, all my programs installed on Vista work fine in Win7 without reinstallation. I had to reenter some product keys, but after that they run exactly how I left them when I last used them in Vista.

This is a sig of some nature.

Been a while. Recently cleaned house so I could see my desktop. MP3 files were everywhere ... album art galore, shortcuts to god knows what. Messy, messy, messy!

Sometimes it's amazing how good a default Windows desktop can look with a good wallpaper

Who gives a shit about the GUI? It's performance that matters, and that's where Win7 stomps XP. Plus you can't beat a 25-second boot time.

Oh, and ctrl+shift+esc has been around since the Windows 2000 days.

This is a sig of some nature.

@ psyfire: maybe you should take the screenshot with higher res/AA, because the borders of the walkway with the hut on it looks pretty pixelated.

No can do. I took that screen shot with graphics settings in my laptop maxed out. Apparently business laptops aren't too good for gaming. heh.

Just a Gundam 00 wallpaper at the moment. With season 2 in progress, it is actually turning out to be a decent show.
