Windows 7 beta is perfect.
Happy 2009 to everyone at pcper=]
I just thought I'd recommend windows 7 beta to everyone here.
There's nothing not excellent about it, and as 3dfxrain once said, Microsoft really does care. I like the discontinuation of HW audio acceleration (I think it's best that it's gone, for numerous reasons; my onboard is perfect with s/pdif optical out, the sound drivers can't crash since they're in user space, and it's a lot simpler to just not have to rely on creative for all things audio related), and they made HW AA mandatory with DX10.1. I wish that nvidia included DX10.1 in some of their recent or even not so recent refreshes. I could be wrong, but I think if they used it, then we'd have aa in more games, because I assume more games would support DX10.1 if nvidia supported it, rather than only ATI.
Anyway, windows 7 is very fast, and has all of vista 64's best features, and it's a lot smoother, and physical memory usage is cut by 1/2. Another thing I love about it, is the new visual tweaks, like the lightup of the close, maximize, and minimize buttons, and the new task bar is beautiful in aero glass.
