Windows Even though the Windows 7 beta had been available on piracy networks for a while now, it still hadn't been officially released. During his pre-show keynote at CES, Steve Ballmer officially launched the Windows 7 beta onto the world via TechNet, MSDN, and Connect. It will become available to the general public this Friday.

It could be the video drivers not optimized for the new version, yet. It had also happened with Vista, which had terrible gaming performance at the time of release.

Give it enough time, and it will catch up eventually.

Additionally, boot times may be machine dependent, but all the benchmarks I've seen, and my own experience tells Windows 7 boots faster than both XP and Vista.
