Back in August 19th I posted a thread on getting Windows7 rc for free use until next March 2010. The other day I got around to installing it and giving it a try. Nedless to say I was impressed with it. As most of you know I am more of a Linux and XP fan. Vista Blows. I hate Vista. wINDOWS 7 LOOKS SIMILIAR TO vISTA BUT WAY BETTER. aS 47_Mason_47 stated in my other post.. "Windows 7 is what Vista should have been." You can install it on your XP computer if you have the Disk space and run both of them in a duel boot option. Here is a link to an article on how to set it up with XP. If you have a 64bit processor opt for that 64bit version. It is better than I thought it was going to be. I will probably stick to Linux and XP but hey. It's worth trying at least. Way, Way better than Vista.. Sorry here is the link.
