Windows 7: How many installs of 7 since beta release?

11 Apr 2009   #21


Sadly, I only jumped on the Win7 bandwagon back in November or December.

I cannot say exactly how many, because I too have lost count....

I do remember installing 1 build at least 7 different times.....and I have been through 5 builds, currently on #6....

Windows 7 Professional x64

This is all great but we are going to be forking over the $299 or $399 the first week it comes out RTM. After using the full-featured versions, I don't think anything but the retail - full - ultimate is going to make me happy. I guess we have plenty of time to save our money.

Hey SE.

I got you figured out; you're just trying for the record number of installs.

Same here but 3 or 4 installs per build per architecture (x86 and x64) and add some other builds:
2x install...... 7022
4x install...... 7057
3x install...... 7077

Edit: Oh and add 1x install...... 6956
LOL.. I still have all the above builds saved on my 1TB external. I'm a beta fanatic I guess.

BTW builds 7068 and 7077 provides the best stability and performance of all the builds at least till now
