      Windows 7 and FFXI

      Windows 7 Beta was realeased and I figured I would play with it some.

      I have already herd that it is more compatible program wise, then Vista is already.

      I just finished burning it to a DVD and will be installing it on a spare drive I have, will let you all know how well it runs FFXI, if at all

      EDIT: .....aaannnddd I cant find my spare drive -.- so untill i do, no testing for me *sigh*

      EDIT EDIT: Ok I might try and use my Latitude XT Tablet/Laptpop for testing W7, but it has no DVD drive -.- but I have a converter thingy for SATA/IDE to USB, so I might beable to install it that way.

      Minimum requirements for WIndows 7 Beta
      -CPU: 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor
      -RAM: 1 GB of system memory
      -VID: DirectX 9 graphics with 128 MB memory (to enable the Aero theme)

      Specs of Laptop (in case I use it)
      -CPU: 1.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
      -RAM: 3GB DDR2 667 MHz
      -VID: 256 MB ATI Radeon Xpress 1250

      EDIT AGAIN: *sigh* ....... ok yeah USB coverter being stupid.... so Tablet wont be an option -.- going to use my main gaming PC instead

      Specs of PC
      -CPU: 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Quad
      -RAM: 4GB DDR2 800 MHz
      -VID: 1GB ATI Radeon HD 3850

      So let me get this straight... Vista is still an utter PR nightmare (thought not as bad as most claim, seriously people need to stop Q_Q it works just fine for everyone I know who has it. I have to question just wtf these ppl are doing with their PCs) and now they're already jumping to the next OS?


      I really wish Bill Gates still ran that company. Heads would be rolling god damn it.

      Malacite: Of course they're moving on. It would be nearly impossible for them to repair Vista's public image at this point.

      In a lot of ways, Windows 7 is evolutionary of Vista, not revolutionary; at least so far. But it is an improvement. And that's pretty much all they need.

      Does anyone remember Microsoft ME? It was crap! It was the transition from Windows 98 to Windows XP and it blew more penis than a penis blowing machine. (Which in fact, Microsoft ME was used as the primary OS for most automated phelatio devices)

      It wouldn't be surprised if microsoft said...hmm...what would make xp better?

      I know! Let's send out these intial ideas in a package called vista, and then see how they work out. It keeps us making money, and gives real world feedback as to how to make our next big upgrade.

      They used the consumer base as a test bed, which to us is dick, but to them is good bussiness sense. I still roll with XP personally.

      I really, really doubt that. First of all, it wouldn't make sense for them to delay a beta. Secondly, it's damaged (not severely, but significantly) their image and market share. Thirdly, there is a huge community of people out there willing to do beta tests; look at the Windows 7 Beta. It wouldn't make sense for them to put a ton of burden on people who are almost certainly not going to be reporting bugs anyway; especially when they can ship a Beta to people who will put it through its paces, and have an easy and sensible "REPORT PROBLEMS HARR" button on each window.

      You expected the Windows Desktop development team to sit on their ass?

      95 -> 98 - 3 years
      98 -> ME - 2 years
      2000 -> XP - 1 year

      Waiting for Vista was an oddity. By the time Windows 7 ships, almost 2 years will have passed.

      OS X goes through roughly 18 month product cycles.

      Vista was a grand design. The project suffered from feature creep and poor project management. Eventually feature after feature had to be held back or outright dropped until finally they were told to just ship it and let the maintenance group work on it. The moment it shipped, work started on Windows 7 from the completed code from the Windows Server group.

      Yeah Vista Works great, **NOW**, espically on newer machines that are better than average models.

      What i find wrong with vista in the beging was that it didnt' work with half of the gadgets that were out at the time. But Microsoft and others say it's not there fault, it's the Gadget's maker's responsibilty to make them compatiable. KInda like FFXI, i'm not sure who fixed it so they can work together, SE or Microsoft. I'm in the dark on that one.

      Kinda like Yoda said, Fear leads to Anger, and Anger leads to Hate.

      Ppl feared vista ( won't run ffxi!@!!), then it made them mad (It's giveing me a headach to get it to work) , now they hate it (Screw it, I'm going back to XP), so here Come Windows 7 to the rescue.

      So, how's performance compared to XP?

      I'm going to DL it for now and wait till I get a couple gig more ram before installing it.
