Frankly, I don't understand all the glowing praises for Windows 7 Beta. I don't understand also all this hatred for Windows Vista. Under Windows 7, almost all of my current applications DO NOT work! Three of my devices DO NOT work! I am a professional video editor and my Magix Movie Edit 14 does not work under this OS and for that alone I am not about to give up Vista! Secondly checkout Windows Media Player in Win 7. Everything is a guessing game. I tried to rip a CD and nowhere is there a progress bar to let me know the work is being done. In Vista, you see the progress bar in WMP. In Vista, my HP enhanced keyboard did all the work for me, eject a CD, increase volume, access email, etc. In Win 7, it doesn't even recognize my keyboard. Considering all, why would I switch to another OS when, in my current OS--Vista SP1, everything works? Under the current dismal economy and grim unemployment, why would I buy a new car (and spend money I don't have) when my current one works and does the job?
