Lightbulb Windows 7(Something to think about?)

First and foremost I know that the main issue on the boards right now is PT8 and getting everything to work. So I wanted to sidetrack a little.

We all know that Microsoft announced Windows 7 at PDC 08 and that beta version have been leaked to the net where computer geeks and nerds a like are testing its ability.

So far people have bragged about Windows 7 having a much smaller boot up time and that it takes less ram to operate. People are putting the beta version through real world situations such as: moving small and large amounts of data, device compatibility, and game support. Some other tests that people would love to see seems to be third party app support, which seems that it wouldn't cause a problem.

For those who don't know already. Windows 7 is build off of Vista's architecture(EXCEPT BETTER). When people heard that the first time they started turning away until the illegal beta proved otherwise. Windows 7 seems to be living up to it's promise so far, but only time will tell. Like most products the beta will be the find the bugs version and the final copy should be a ok minus tiny hits a misses. Logically speaking, if the beta is this good then the final should be greater.


Pro Tools now has official support for Vista and since Windows 7 is built off of it then it seems to be that there will not be many problems except the ones we have now for upgrading.(Lets Pray) Also, with Windows 7 becoming lighter on your hardware than Vista we can see increased performance.
