Installed the Win7 RC on the x60. Damn it’s good.
It’s so good that I almost prefer using it over my big Vista desktop.
I’m on a stint of trying to use RHEL 5.3 at work, but now I really don’t know how long I’m going to be able to last.
Well on the plus side, at least for the next year or so, it’s going to be clear what the best OS to run is. So at least I can stop being OCD about it.
Update: seem to be hitting some bug where the screen will stop updating for a while (feels like several minutes). If video’s playing, then the audio keeps coming out, but the screen is frozen.
Also, for others trying this on the X60.. don’t forget to install the “System interface driver” from the Lenovo page.. or else things like the hotkey driver won’t work. Also I had to do the registry hack described here to get the hotkey thing to install.
A little scared to install the power manager and power management driver. Won’t those things conflict with the new Windows stuff?
