First look at Windows7

It was faily quick to install Windows7 on VirtualBox after mounting the ISO directly instead of using DVD. I was not expecting to be able to work with Windows7 on VirtualBox but it took me by surprise as it’s better than Vista and not sluggish at all. On top of it, even the latest beta release as got 3 updates available for download as soon as you’re done with the Installation which doesn’t require a reboot (Thank god!). There seem to be 7 differences with this release through which Microsoft is trying hard to win back the consumer confidence lost along with its Vista release.

Here is an interesting new feature which I explored while installing Windows7

Yes, password for home group networking. Hmm!

Though i’m not a PC User, I’m exploring this beta to see new up’s and down’s of Windows OS. FYI: Microsoft started its new year with a Critical patch release for SMB remote exploit.
