:lol:
Win 7 of course. What did you think? :p
anyway I can use any of the keys posted here? (My download is 90% done)

Well it was a lil unbelievable for me that you havent got the keys... after Microsoft made the keys so neatly available for a change. Well well, whatever works for you.

Enjoy the new windows... dont forget the power saving settings.

Some observations:
Miss the quick launch.
Miss the easy repair of network connections... replaced by diagnostics which now takes more than a min or two to resolve issues.
The annoying UAC.
IF UAC is turned off... you cannot use desktop gadgets.
Impressive task manager.
Power saving options are good. (If you are a night downloader, configure your hard disk to Never sleep :))
Sometimes unable to delete certain files/folders even as an admin.

I am an xp user so it took me a while to get on with window 7... but a vista user may find this version a blessing in disguise. windows 7 is both stylish and efficient. nuff said.

to repair, do this

type "cmd" in the search bar (start menu). press SHIFT + CTRL + Enter.

You will be in administrative command line mode. do

1) ipconfig /release
2) ipconfig /renew.


UAC is one of the many reasons why Vista is more secure when compared to XP. You can set UAC to different levels. I always keep it at max as I download lot of stuff from torrents and I don't want to have spyware on my PC.

Guys Pls help me out of this stuff!
I got Windows 7 DVD from my friend, he got it from the biggest pirate shop in our place :) . That DVD Contained Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Ultimate (All in one) but I think (I may be wrong, correct me if am) Microsoft have released only Ultimate for Beta version. I think the DVD I got is a total crap but all the features I see and the screenshots I have gone through in the forum is present and the system properties shows its Windows 7. So pls say if I am using Windows 7 or some cracked and themed version of Vista

Hey Guys Pls Help Me Out. I Have An Intel 945G Mobo With Inbuilt Soundcard (SoundMAX Integerated Digital Audio). The Problem Is That Device Manager And Windows Update Say My Sound driver Is Up To Date But I M Not Able To Play Anything On Any Player (Including VLC And KM Player). When I Try To Play Any Media File On WMP 12, It Gives An Error Saying WMP 12 Cannot Play The File. I Checked Microsoft Web Help Also Which Shows That I Donot Have Up To date Sound Drivers. Plz Help Me Out As I'm Not Able 2 Play Any Media On Win 7.

I think your guess is as good as mine. Microsoft till date has only released the Ultimate version. They are still in the process to decide names and the release dates of other versions.

I am using Windows 7 Beta build 7000 as my primary and only OS. I have said good bye to XP, Vista and all flavours of Linux.:)
System configuration :
Acer Aspire Laptop 4710Z
Intel Pentium Dual core processor T2310
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950
1GB DDR2 (with 5 tabs in firefox, thunderbird and computer management window open, only 69% utilized with all visual enhancements enabled including 4 sidebar gadgets)
I had problems using TATA Indicom Dialer application. So after installing drivers for USB modem, I am signing in through default dialer application.:(
All commonly used applications run flawlessly.
Installed anti-virus Avast 4.8 Home
My Windows Experience Rating Score is 3.1 (Lowest for Graphic Card - As expected). With Vista it used to be 3.0.
I am not much into Gaming so can't provide information on that.
