Microsoft is releasing a public beta of windows 7.  Once I get my older hard drive installed in this computer I think I may give it a try to see what it’s like.  Even though I rarely use windows at this point I need it for a few things like mapping software for our gpsrs and some other little thinks like that.

Vista is on Molly’s laptop and I just don’t like that.  I do like windows XP which I have installed on this computer and dual boot but I won’t be able to use that forever.  Sooner or later it won’t have drivers that I need or that sort of thing.  Her laptop seems pretty stable though so I can’t complain  too much about it.

From what I’ve read windows 7 seems to be easier on memory which is nice.  Even though ram is cheap now I still would rather it be used for what I want it used for.
