    Yep! :) It's bad bad bad and bad bad bad :D Nothing will beat OS X and there's nothing that Microsoft can do about it :D

    What kind of installation and update times are you seeing when you perform a fresh install?

    Same here for parallels... though it did take 2 attempts. The first time the installer just kind of hung.
    Personally I don't mind Windows7 so far. the UI has an almost linux feel to it. Still a lot of work to do, but its already at least as good as vista is.

    I heard that it works better than Vista.
    Hell even XP still has some crashes.
    One of my friends is even using 7 as his primary OS.
    What are the specs of your computer?

    I like XP a lot better than Vista or Windows 7. And Vista is the same Windows 7.

    My spec..
    Core 2 Duo 3Ghz or something like that..
    4GB RAM
    1TB hdd

    Anyway i think that Windows 7 really really sucks and Windows has to go.. i mean if they can fail 2 times in a row.. that's ridiculous... I think that it's time when Mac replaces Windows once and for all :)

    It makes no sense that I have a clean install under a VM go on in 15 minutes, but you take 40 minutes on a full blown well spec'd stand alone system.

    Your conclusions from your "testing" are utter nonsense.

    I don't really care how fast it installs or how much ram it needs.. All i care about is that it can run all my programs and it can't.. lame..

    you're absurd. First off, competition is good. if you have no reason for companies to outdo each other, then you get one crappy operating system.

    Second, your "tests" and such, just don't make sense, windows 7 installs in 15 minutes or less.

    3rd, iChat crashes on me more than msn has crashed on me.

    4th, stop being a fan boy/girl/thing.

    ps. I own 2 macs. and 1 pc. By the way, if you hate it so much, why are u testing it? what are you looking for? it seems like you're desperate to find flaws in win7, to justify something. Just relax, go use osx and be happy with it. Splitting hairs can get you anything you need.

    Maybe because he thought it was going to be better and he didn't know if he hated it until he tested it out.

    Its a beta... msn crashed... He's basic the whole stability, functionality, and usefulness of an entire OS based on an MSN crash? Dont get me wrong, Im not a fan of windows, but this is just....:rolleyes:
