Windows 7 - on a MacBook Pro

Written by on January 9, 2009

Windows 7 has arrived (at least for MSDN members), and it looks... well... it looks... ah... it looks blue.

I installed Windows 7 on my Mac (using Fusion), and it actually works quite well. It is fast, seems rock-solid, and everything worked out of the box - even on a MacBook Pro.

There are a few very minor changes done to the interface (compared to Vista), but it looks very familiar. It is a bit like updating from Mac OS Tiger to Leopard without the extra programs.

...or maybe a better comparison is to say that Vista was like a Mercedes C 65, and Windows 7 is like a Mercedes C 65 AMG. It basically looks the same, and works the same, but the AMG is just better and faster.
