In the spirit of most Microsoft fan boys, I installed Windows 7 Beta on one of my machines as the primary OS and am having an excellent experience.  No, it is not my TouchSmart (even though that would be awesome), but my HP Mini Netbook. 

As most have stated, this OS is very stable (except Lou and his BSOD) and am really looking forward to the test drive.  I tried reporting some bugs I saw in the basics, but didn’t have any luck with the new Send Feedback feature.  Hopefully it is due to everyone submitting bugs so we can make sure this OS is a stable one. 

Tonight I plan to move forward with some basic Netbook optimization and removing unneeded files, then installing the large Office 2007 install to take back the space I just saved.  I use my Netbook for my out-of-office machine, cause it is just not feasible to pull out the MBP and waste all that battery on boot up time and have the 1920x1200 resolution for emails and websites.

if you like vista you'll love windows 7. For one it's using far less ram on my system and for a beta seems far more stable than any beta of any consumer release of windows ever. Finally MS is redeeming themselves!

Which HP Mini do you have? 1 or 2G memory? Did you have any driver issues?

Thinking of doing the same with mine.

How did everyone install with no dvd drive.. Does coping windows to a flash drive and changing the boot config work? Also, did you download a copy of windows 7 or get a disk?
