Hi there
Not again -- I haven't finished playing with W7 yet

I don't want to go through the 150 or so installs again between Beta and Now to say nothing of hunting for odd builds that appeared "in the wild".

Cheers

lol people were sincerely looking and hoping for Win8 beta when Win7 was months away from even becoming RTM.

It's gonna be cool though, when 8 actually does hit beta.
