    I find it pretty funny that microsoft knows how insanely bad a screw up vista was. Thats what i see in this anyways, the fact that they know they screwed up badly so they feel the need to really try hard to make windows 7 a success in any way possible. Even if it means free copys of there OS to some, and all kinds of deals on it.

    My boss is getting giddy about Windows 7, and he's just dying to upgrade all of our computers. But since he did the same thing with Vista, and it's been nothing but headaches since, I've been encouraging him to wait. I have no desire to go through that mess again. Our computers running Vista still won't network with each other. Hopefully, Win 7 will take care of that.

    Wow. I wonder how you get in with Microsoft to be a beta tester. I wonder how Windows 7 is going to differ from Vista. We have XP on one computer and Vista on the other. Vista took a little getting used to but it doesn't suck like many reports I'd heard. I'm sure there is more I could do with Vista that I am unaware of.

    Microsoft is being generous. At least those who participated in the Beta test seriously, need not be disappointed. They can be happy.

    What can I do now, I had never even took part in any of the BETA tests of Win-7, but I can relax that MS is not giving away free copies to all but select beta testers, I wonder who they are, 1)Bill Gate's Son, 2) Steve Jobs...is anyone here of these so called SELECT-BETA-TESTERS....
