I stared using the beta version (7000) of Windows 7 in January, and used it until de RC came out. My impression is that the beta was better. When I saw how good W7 beta was I started hoping that Microsoft wouldÃ‚Â´t ruin it in following releases, but it seems thatÃ‚Â´s whatÃ‚Â´s happening. Everything that didnÃ‚Â´t work in the beta still doesnÃ‚Â´t in the RC, and some things that did work, wonÃ‚Â´t anymore. IÃ‚Â´m at the same time eager to get my hands on the RTM or the GA and afraid of what Microsoft will have done to it.
