Anyone have specs on what WINDOWS 7 will require to run efficiently? Would a dual core be sufficient or since it might not be out till 2010 is a quad core more likely? Also will WINFS be forced on you and reformat the harddrive of a ntfs drive?
Thanks for the link wtsinncDonatello - The Shredder? Michelangelo - Maybe all that hardware is for making coleslaw?
Thanks wtsinnc. This actually seems more modest than I thought - at least for the prebeta version:

Also - if you wanted to be part of a beta test how does it work? Can you do it like a LIVE CD from LINUX without installing on the harddrive? Or would you do a partition and dualboot? I've never done a beta testing but might be intrigued by WINDOWS 7 to test it out. Would a dual boot scenario be the best to preserve your existing harddrive? FYI I'm running VISTA PREMIUM 32bit on the machine I'd likely test on.....Donatello - The Shredder? Michelangelo - Maybe all that hardware is for making coleslaw?
Thanks wtsinnc. I'll check it out. (I do realize the beta for 7 is not out just yet but sounds like it won't be very long before it is).
Woah $700 for a operating system subscription???? No way!
Do they offer free beta downloads during the trial period? I'm sure they'd want to get honest evaluations from the computer enthusiasts who don't want to throw that kind of money around.... Yikes...Donatello - The Shredder? Michelangelo - Maybe all that hardware is for making coleslaw?
WinFS is the only new thing they should have incorporated in win7 ergo its been left out for the foreseeable future. Unleash the Dogs of free source, on a new Filing system. It might happen IF Microsoft buys SUN...hmmmmm.... and gets some real programmers, instead of the quiche eating, hare shirted, Jscript wielding Namby Pambys they have, writing code at the moment. They'd run a mile at the sight of assembler code, and have to get their Nappys changed. Real programmers don't need a Monitor, a small hexadecimal display is just fine.Corned beef is now made to a higher standard than at any time in history.
The electronic components of the power part adopted a lot of Rubycons.
