Yes, I finally installed Windows 7!

The installation took exactly 14 minutes and I could actually use it in 16 Minutes!
It now boots in 8 seconds.

Oh and this is Build 6801 Ultimate [64-bit]

Here are some screenies:

Posted Image
Windows Update has been updated!
As you can see it is easier to use and it gives you a little detail of what the update does!



Posted Image
I think this is really useful.



Posted Image
As you can see this is a new version of IE8.
The one available to Vista and XP users is Version 8.0.6001 this as you can see is 8.0.6801.
And i can tell you that it runs very fast.



Posted Image
Yes, you can make the superbar smaller!
Right click on it, properties then use small icons.
I prefeer the bigger one as i think it looks nicer.
Also notice the gaps between task icons when using small icons.



Posted Image
This is a new tool i found in acessories.
It lets you take snippets of a screenshot over any program you want.
Saves time having to edit and resize screenshots in paint.


Posted Image
Yes its true!
You can activate 7 with a Vista Beta Key!
You just enter it and activate via phone, works 100%



Posted Image
Look of the exclusive Windows 7 Beta of WLM 9



Posted Image
New WMP looking nice.


Posted Image
As you can see control panel has had a revamp.
IMO its alot easier to use.
Thats it for now.

Posted Image
As you can see there is a massive improvement on memusage
in vista i get an average of 850 - 950.
Here its just 500. Well Done MS.

Posted Image
Contacts lets making communication with friends and family more user friendly and efficient.

Posted Image
The look for themes and monitor proporties

Posted Image
Sidebar has evolved into a better more self efficient program.
Gadgets.
You can now chose where you want to put your Gadgets and they are not confined to a side bar.

Posted Image
The interface for games has made it more welcoming and useable for online gamers.
Another good move.
PS Are those throphies like Achivements for 360 or Trophies (lol) for PS3 ?!?!?!
Very Interesting indeed.


Posted Image
Got kids?
No Stress!
Windows 7 comes with full parental controls that are very easy to use.


Posted Image
The recycle bin is now a more user friendly place.
Look, finally some previews!

Posted Image
Devices and Printers menu actually shows you a real icon of what hardware you have!
I thought it was cool :D

Posted Image
The new dvd maker.

Posted Image
New look of paint with ribbon ui makes paint now a shit and not UTTERLY useless app :D

Posted Image
New look of word makes it a bit more advanced, still not ms word but oh well!

Posted Image
Current right click menu
Gadgets is only new thing really.

Posted Image
As you can see RUN is back!!!
And it has been rearranged, Help is not there anymore, and good ridence!

Posted Image
The new bootscreen!

Posted Image
New login screen.
Curtisy of AskVG.com

Posted Image
Is more or less replacing 'Documents'


Posted Image
This is the replacement for Security Center, it has a lot more features and is easier to use.

Posted Image
UAC has had a complete revamp.
You can know disable it completly or set it to different modes.


Posted Image
Troubleshooting makes it easier to sort out a problem with your software/hardware.
Also makes it easier on the eyes :D


Posted Image
Is a new and very useful tool that lets you see key events such as programs not responing, crashes and updates and rates how reliable your computer should be.


Posted Image
The feedback application! :D


Endrit10's Windows 7 Mini Frequently Asked Questions [FAQ]

Q: What build are you using for your review?
A: Windows 7 64-Bit Ultimate Edition Build 6801

Q: Can you really activate Windows 7 with a Vista Beta/RC1 key?
A: Yes you can! Google a little and you can find many keys, simply activate over the phone.

Q: How can I activate SuperBar like in your screenshots?
A: Just download this little Patch http://www.withinwin...eme-workaround/ . Very easy to do!

Q: It still looks like Vista!
A: Correct thats because its actually closer to Vista coding that to W7 coding! Its PRE-BETA!! Vista did not get aero till beta 2, that means even in beta 1 it may still be like this! Just give MS time.

Q: Im confused is MinWin in Windows 7 or what?
A: Indeed it is, MinWin was confirmed to be present in Win7, but as stated above its not being used to proper capacity as alot of recoding is still left to do.
Source: http://blogs.zdnet.c...crosoft/?p=1690


Q: Should I upgrade to Vista or wait for Windows 7.

A: At the end of the day it is your choice, but personally I would wait for Win7 now since its so close, its a bit late to upgrade to be perfectly honest.

MORE COMING SOON.

They should have that IE Feeds thing for all Browsers. Not just Internet Explorer because I use Firefox (and so do most people here), so that's upsetting. They have to think about 3rd part apps.

Strange i dont have it!


Snippet is only available in certain Vistas. Microsoft only gave certain tools to certain buyers. I know f'ed up right?

I know Home Basic doesn't get it.

I noticed a lot about Vista moving from version to version. Microsoft really doesn't care about their users unless they have the dough.

Win7 looks nice... wait didn't we say the same thing about Vista?... hmmm... is this going to be a repeat?
