First impression of Windows-7 beta

I installed Windows-7 beta as a guest operating system of the SUN xVM on my Lenovo T-61 running Vista . The installation went smoothly although it required most of the available memory. A screen shot is enclosed.

From reasons which I still don’t understand the network interface was not detected, so surfing the Internet was not possible during this test! (I have network connection when I run Suse 11 as a xVM client).

While everyone look to the sky these days for Cloud Computing, Microsoft preferred to dive into the sea and to display a fish at the center of the desktop. Strange.

I can’t say anything yet about stability and performance but my first impression is of a deja vu; More of the Same.

Suse and Ubuntu are still my favorites.

We shall see.
