Windows 7: Running Windows 7 on old Laptop.

I'm running it as well on an old PC and it runs very smooth.
I used the same PC to run Vista when it was in Beta and the poor thing was struggling to run Vista properly.

Good job MS and hope you do it right this time.

I was surprised how fast it installed as well. I started the installation and left it to go for dinner but had to get something from the fridge after what felt like 10 mins (don't quote me on that) so I thought I'd take a look at what the install is doing and it was asking me to create an account and then loaded the desktop. Very impressed.
