Lucky 7 anyone?

So after letting it sit for a whole week on my hdd, I finally had the time to boot up the Windows 7 Beta dvd images on my VMWare server installation.

the install went very smooth. Soon I was greeted with a login screen eerily similar to Vista. But the label on the bottom ensure me that I did in fact have installed Windows 7, Ultimate Version. Thank God for that

The look and feel, again is eerily similar to Vista, save for the odd looking blocky taskbar. Also I’ve noticed that they changed the way the log off/shutdown/hibernate thingy works. instead of defaulting on an icon that dubiously represent hibernate, it is now set to default on shutdown, represented by a button that clearly states “shutdown”. Good for them!

The default install leave about 900MBish out of 8GB virtual drive that I have prepared. That’s of OS alone. Compare that to my 5GB Intrepid install that includes an office suit, 3 kind of browsers, google earth, a database server, http server, vmware, and so on and so forth…
