That's right folks, love them or hate them, the big MS has moved in a wise step by significantly shortening the regular product lifespan of their last greatest crapperware of an OS...you know the one, it rhymes with 'Pista, and instead coming out with what we wanted in the first place:
A gamer AND business friendly OS that is as fast as XP, requires pretty much the same specs as XP [or even less on mobiles], is less buggy, and more stream-lined (and hopefully stable) as any apple MAC OS.
Just look it up and see for yourself, but even non-MS affiliated reviewers seem genuinely pleased by the early Beta results. It is also supposed to have a newer update to Direct X, 11.x or something in that ballpark. That bodes well for us, the gaming elite.
And if you are lucky enough to have gotten your hands on the BETA, here is a very slick and easy guide to multi-boot Win7 with Vista, and XP if you want....compliments of the sweet and helpful dudes over at Tweaktown.
The countdown begins!
