Windows Even though the EULA accompanying the beta build of Windows 7 prohibits the publication of benchmark results (good luck enforcing that one, Redmond), everybody and their dog will still compare the Windows 7 beta to Vista and Windows XP. Adrian Kingsley-Hughes is one of those benchmarking the beta, and according to his results, the Windows 7 beta beats both Vista and XP in just about every scenario.

Would be nice if he posted the actual figures for his tests, so we could see how much the speed difference is.

Also test 1, installing the OS, is mostly irrelevant since it is something that is done a couple of times in the computer's lifetime, if that (most Windows installations are done by the manufacturer). As long as it doesn't take a ridiculous amount of time, who cares?
