Today, I installed the Windows 7 beta on a new MSI Wind netbook (I’ve decided to return the Acer Aspire One due to its limited battery life, lack of Bluetooth and poorly designed trackpad buttons).
There’s not much to say really. While I did our network-based installation at work, I anticipate that installing from a DVD and having an Internet connection would go the same. End result: a fully working and configured machine including all the devices with no hitting up the web for drivers! Astonishing. This is the best Windows installation experience I’ve ever had and this is with a beta OS!
