    Notes about Windows 7 on a 10.4 Mac with Virtual Box Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

    • Basic info is at ttp://www.tuaw.com/2009/05/10/installing-windows-7-rc1-on-your-mac-for-free/
    • You can use a Mac to download, but you must use Firefox (not Safari) to get it. It will use Firefox as a download manager.
    • It downloads pretty quickly. I got it in less than an hour. Depends on your Internet conection, of course, but at least MS has this hosted on a good server.
    • Along the way, you'll be given a key (serial number.) Print/save this number right away--the next time you click 'submit' or 'continue' or whatever it will take you to another page.
    • Get the 32-bit version
    • Good news--it's Windows 7 Ultimate!
    • It's a "Release Candidate Customer Preview" so it should be pretty close to what gets released in terms of performance, stability, and features.
    • Space needed: it's a 2.36 GB download, 4.96 GB installed into a VirtualBox disk image.
    • Very first thing: install the guest additions.
    • One down side: it may take some time to start up. On my 2.33 GHz MacBook Pro (which, to be fair, has been on for 44 days and has many apps and a ton of Safari windows open) it can easily take over 5 minutes. Once it's up and running, it's fine, but evidently it takes some time to read and boot from a 5 GB compressed disk image. :-)

    Random thoughts...

    (Mostly negative, good things are in bold.)

    Number one: tabs across the top? Don't like'em. The rationale you hear is "but that makes the URL box part of the page, which makes sense." But then it also makes the bookmarks bar a part of the page, which it isn't... so it's B.S. Why don't I like it? 1) I have no problem with the concept of the URL box. I've been on the WWW since 1995. I don't need any hints about what this box does. And for me, it makes perfect sense to see the tab directly connected to the page's content. 2) It looks cluttered. And when I want to grab the title bar to move a window, I now have to be careful where I grab it lest something undesirable happen. [Later] The more I use it, the more I dislike it. With a few cascaded windows open, and multiple tabs in each, it really looks messy.
