With the release of windows 7 there has been alot of press coverage. I am curious to hear what the community thinks of Windows 7 and any experiences you have had with it. I know MrDenny has posted a few blog entries about it. Share your thoughts and experiences. Thanks Sean

Windows 7 beta seems to work fine. It’s faster than Vista, and they continued to improve the visual effects. One issue I found with all new operating systems is Server Admin pack compatibility. SP1 got it working in Vista, but they still have problems in the beta version.

    Windows 7 does seem faster than Vista, but I tend to think of Windows 7 as Windows Vista R2. On the surface, you would be hard pressed to tell Vista and WIndows 7 apart, aside from a few visual things. Microsoft is including some new features in WIndows 7 though. Check out my blog. I tend to post about WIndows 7 pretty often: http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/brien-posey/
