    For anyone that cares, the beta of the latest operating system from microsoft, Windows 7 will be released at some point today!

    Havn't heard much about this until today?! But apparently its basically done and we should be expecting it to be on sale in 2010!

    Here is a link if people want to read up about it..

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/

    And if you want to download it click on 'Downloads' at the top of the page on the above link... Not sure what time its being released but it says at some point on the 9th January so keep watching...

    Think i will have a little peek at this!! Only just upgraded to Vista Ultimate: Extreme Edition though!... Was just getting used to vista lol

    Yeah i know of this it is just like Microsoft Surface they are integrating touch technology into there OS. The fact that in 3 years time Surface will be everywhere is sick.

    I use linux cause it works
    I can get (legal) vista for free so cost isn't an issue in this decision, usage and productivity is

    is that screen shot linux or new windows 7? has anyone downloaded it yet? is it just a vista update or a "start from scratch OS"? The website is super slow prob cause like a tenth of the internet population has tried to have a look today. Cheers
