Windows Let's combine the two most popular topics on the internet today into one: Windows 7 on netbooks. Microsoft has already confirmed that it will ship a version of Windows 7 designed for netbooks, the popular small laptops that appear to be the only bright spot in an otherwise abysmal PC industry climate. However, with various reports indicating that Windows 7 already runs fine on netbooks, this raises the question: what exactly is Microsoft planning?

I installed Windows 7 Beta on my Dell Inspiron 9400 today to give it a whirl.

It froze up after rebooting.. XP is back on.

What do you want? It's a beta. Microsoft also warns that it could be quirky. I've had Windows 7 on my Dell notebook for a while. Yes it flaked out in the end. I shrugged and put Ubuntu back on. But I did get to play with the feature set and the OS for a bit to see what all the fuss was about, and that was my goal, and incidentally also MS's goal.

After reading all the claims about how fast and stable Windows 7 beta is, I was hoping to experience that.

I eagerly ran out to buy Vista and was sorely disappointed.

I'm just trying to have a little faith in Microsoft, but it''s very hard to do.
