I missed the bus to download the beta of Windows 7 which was available for download in January this year. But this time around, Microsoft has listened to my prayers and its Release Candidate 1 (which is available for download at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/) will be available all through July, 2009. Finally I too might get the chance to get my hands dirty with this latest installment of the ever-so-popular, our very own WINDOWS.

Now that I am talking about Windows, I wanted to say something about Vista too. Although I know that a majority of people using it, find it to be one of the worst OS to come out of MS’ stable, but I don’t hate it as much. Or, should I say, I love it. Actually, I like it a lot. This might be attributed to the fact that I didn’t face any driver-related issues which many a notebook owners face.

Also, I am happy using Vista because I readily disabled its UAC (I took gr8 pains to actually do that 😉 ) at the very instant it surfaced its ugly head. The reason of my liking might also be attributed to the fact that I liked its visual appearence a lot (until I saw the KDE 4).

One problem that really annoys me about Vista is its slow transfer speeds, between various storage mediums. All in all it has been a good experience for me (for me atleast). Last but definitely not the I would like to mention that my journey with Vista has been a pleasent one because I used it for just a
MONTH!! :P. Now, I am happily using the latest version of my fav. Linux distro.

Coming back to Windows 7, I have read many good reviews of its beta on various online forums and reputed tech-magazines. But am yet to try it out myself and man!! I can’t wait to try it – RIGHT NOW!!

P.S. I have kept my fingers crossed 🙂
