Finally after 2,5 year Windows Vista was released I can say “WOW” with the first public beta of Windows 7. The installation process went smooth. I installed one VM and two physical machines. The setup went fine on a Lenovo ThinkCentre M57 and on my ASUS home system. I am looking forward to see the latest version released.
What’s new in Windows 7?
- Improved taskbar and full-screen previews
- Jump Lists
- New ways to work with Windows
- Internet Explorer 8
- Windows Live
- Better device management
- Faster, more responsive performance
- Extended battery life
- Theme packages reflect your style
- Take control of problems
- Share music and videos
- Windows Touch
- Handwriting recognition additions
- Bitlocker with enhanced usb encryption
If you hadn’t download Windows 7 Beta than I suggest browsing to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/beta-download.aspx and get the bits. Anyway I wanted to share my first experience with installing and playing with VMWare Workstation Version: 6.5.1 Build: 126130. It’s simple as it should. Plug and play 😉
The installation went smooth and in minutes I was able to run my VMs without hassle.
