Windows 7 Beta on Mac

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Hello World !!

I am writing this using Internet Explorer 8 on Windows 7 Beta, which I am able to successfully install on my Mac OS X using VM Ware Fusion 2.x

The setup and installation of Windows 7 is a breeze, so far I have got nothing to complain with the installation. Looks pretty good. I haven’t used Windows Vista before so I guess my experience with Windows 7 (so far) is turning out to be good :).

Here’s the screen shot

Atlast a new Desktop … guess what !!!

I brought a iMAC !!!!

Never thought I would say those words…there you go…after two years with out a desktop, I decided that it’s high time to get one. Since I do all my development with my beloved Dell, I needed a machine which can do all my multimedia work…and that’s mainly converting and creating DVD’s from my Handy cam. The answer was simple…get a MAC, so walked in to David Jones yesterday and got one straight away…..setup was a breeze…no messy cables just the Display, Keyboard and mouse.

I should thank my collegue Paul Jones for suggesting I get the 20 inch iMAC with 1 Gb RAM as I can always upgrade the RAM later and that saved me a good $400 and in turn made my decision of getting one faster.

Next, I need to try the boot camp and get Vista for my .NET stuff.

Update 28-Nov-2009:
It’s now more than a year since I got my mac. I should say I am very very happy with and I am using VMWare Fusion to run Windows 2003 and Ubuntu.
