Windows 7: Why are you testing Win 7?

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

A while back MS offered a fixed number of people a free dvd of either vista ultimate or office 2007 for allowing them to collect extra info from their comps for a certain period of time. You had to send an email and then they got back to you if selected. There's an old thread around about it, but I can't find it at the moment.

Vista Ult 64bit - Windows 7 Ult 7264 64bit

Cause I like to BREAK NEW THINGS!!

Well to be honest, it's that and a combination of what others are already saying. If we as "Helpers" want to be able to stay current, we have to get the newest ASAP and get into all the little nooks and cranny's it has to see what new nooks and cranny's it has to get into (am I speeking in circles here?)

Plus I've been beta testing stuff since early last decade so why stop there, especially when it's Free and the darn thing works!!
Although I am having more issues with 7057 than any other build so far, I also know it's an Internal build and not destined for everyday use like 7000 was, and I still want to see where they're going with things. Personally, I don't like the new Control Panel icon, it looks flat and dull. I think they could've made more use of the older icon but make it more translucent looking and maybe more detail. This new one looks like something a new icon developer would put out in a trial pack or something.

Same for me. I wasn't entirely happy with the Vista user experience, especially since I had been running OSX on my machine as well. Now I'm happier using Win7 than OSX!

Hello redsoxm16,

Actually I was thinking of a thread here on Seven Forums, but that has the email address in it so it works. Thanks.

Windows7 beta 7000

I didn't hate Vista but it wasn't anything to cheer about either. I downloaded Windows7 beta to try it out so I'd know if I wanted to buy it when it hits the market. I liked it well enough, and it was stable enough, to become my OS on both my desktop and my netbook. I recently moved to 64-bit and right now that will be my choice to purchase for the desktop when the time comes. I don't mess with the versions in the wild, though. 7000 is good for me.
