+ - First look at Windows 7 beta 1->

The other A. N. Other (666) writes "It seems that Microsoft couldn't keep the lid on Windows 7 beta 1 until the new year. By now several news outlets have their hands on the beta 1 code and have posted screenshots and information about this build.

Hardware 2.0:

This beta is of excellent quality. This is the kind of code that you could roll out and live with. Even the pre-betas were solid, but finally this beta feels like it's "done." This beta exceeds the quality of any other Microsoft OS beta that I've handled.


If only Windows Vista had been like Windows 7 is today, at this still early beta stage, the "wow" truly would have started "now", which is now over two years ago, when you look at the November 30, 2006 "Vista Business" release, which followed by the general Vista release in late January, 2007.


Neowin members have posted screenshots of the beta and we can confirm the 7000.0.081212-1400_client_en-us_Ultimate-GB1CULFRE_EN_DVD version is legitimate.
