Windows 7 looks like a winner

Windows 7 beta is now available for download and has proved so popular that Microsoft’s server could not cope when it was released.  There is a workaround highlighted by Mary-Jo Foley and other information on the system on Paul Thurrott’s SuperSite for Windows.

I partitioned my drive and have it running separately to my “working” Vista system at present.  First impressions are good, and it is a vast improvement on Vista.  It looks like Microsoft are on to a winner.

Let us hope it comes out of beta quickly.  By the reaction today, it appears that users are keen to move on from Vista.

I am not able to judge whether the beta can be used for everyday computing.  I will leave that for others to comment on.
