Windows 7 Beta x64… first thoughts

So after realizing that just using the VMWare Workstation 6.5.1. “Easy Installer” method set to Windows Vista x64 edition, I’ve got my VM of Windows 7 Beta x64 operational and working.  So far I’m fairly pleased in how amazingly snappy it is.  I am curious however why the base image is ~13 GB when it’s extracted.  Overall, thank you Microsoft for releasing it 🙂

Now onto the real fun of working with this to see what it can do… still amazed how snappy it is even for Beta code.
