Though Media Center Plays Live TV, the playback is sluggish, thats understandable as its still in beta.

One change which I didnt like is that for closing taskbar tabs I used to right click and again right click on close in the context menu, now I have to right click and then left click on close to close the program :( hope this will be changed..
Report! That's what the betas are for. :)

why do you need drivers? everything works for me out of the box. Just had to delete bluetooth from device manager and refresh. I did upgrade though..

Finally installed win7 beta. And am a little bit disappointed. It's slower than vista 64-bit and win7 build 6801 that I tested earlier.

Vista gave a score of 4.1 and win7 gave a score of 3. my HDD shows rating of 3 in win7 and 5.9 in vista. have to do the udpates and check again.

The installation took around 35 minutes to complete. Nothing much to say about interface as I already discussed about this earlier. But my biggest disappointment is media center. It's pathetically slow. when I try to search for music, it hangs most of the time.

PS: maybe I have to install win7 on primary partition instead of extended!!!

Please provide this feedback to Microsoft.

finally, sound driver installed on my system. there are many users who could be having problems with thier display and sound drivers. one suggestion to all of them, "GET XP/VISTA DRIVERS AND INSTALL THEM IN COMPATIBILITY MODE". Most of the problems should get solved.

Some keyboard shortcuts which come in handy

Win+Up Arrow to maximize
Win+Down Arrow to restore or minimize
Docking to the left and right with Win+Left Arrow and Win+Right Arrow
Peeking at the desktop can be done with Win+Space

what symbol do you get when you press shift+3?if you are getting £ then keyboard layout is set to UK English.

Try changing the layout to US in "Regional and Language" Options.

*After some inactivity every key on keyboard becomes Windows hotkey. For example, pressing P key acts as Win+P key and so on. After a minute or so it becomes normal again.
*ftp not working in explorer.
*Taskbar preview does not show preview of Excel 2007
* When try to login to Windows network, dialog box does not give input box for domain name. Previous Windows versions has option for domain too.

All reported.

Hover effect on Start Orb does not look good IMHO

My Blog is rendering properly in IE 8 but not in Firefox 3. Lolz...what is wrong here, the blogs code or is it that IE 8 supports standards better then firefox.



From tomorrow onwards, I m going to try to use Windows 7 as my primary OS. The UI will take some time getting used to. I will be customizing Windows 7 the way I customize Vista like the start menu etc cos ATI Drivers are not giving any more trouble.

WMP12 has problems in playing & seeking Videos.

FFDshow isn't properly compatible. Some files which used to play fine in Vista r not playing in Win7 with FFDshow

Did anybody checked Pointers tab of the Mouse Settings.... there are many irrelevant cursor schemes named "(system scheme)" and they are so many... a bug maybe!

anyways running smoothly.. Ad Muncher runs as process... No gui and does not actually blocks Ads..

As gx said.. MPC and WMP12 has problem seeking videos.

In MPC with K-Lite installed, A/V are unsynchronised while playing any video.

some of the older Vista Gadgets dont' work.

and the eye candy tht i loved is tht the "glow" of the icon in the taskbar when u hover it is of the same color which is more significant in the icon...and it moves wit the pointer... Cool man... :D

Please provide this feedback to Microsoft.

The problem was with the location of the OS on harddrive. earlier install was on last partition of second sata HDD.

reinstalled it to primary partition on first HDD and it's damn fast. back to the speed of build 6801.

now, media center works well. no lag and got the user experience index of 4.1, which was the same for Vista.

To report the bug, i have to wait for another day or two as I have applied for Airtel connection and disconnected TATA Indicom wimax.
