Since it was Beta
> Hello John.
> I´m using Seven on "all" my computers, from a 3000+ Athlon(1
> core)/1GB, passing thru my laptop Athlon TK57(2 cores)/4GB up to the
> Phenom 8650(3 cores)/4GB desktop.
> Even an old 1300MHz Tualatin Celeron with 512MB.
> IT WORKS!
> ¿fine, good, bad?.... it works, flawlessly.
> 2 computers with 64bits version and 2 with 32 bits version.
> The Celeron goes fine, not too fast, but enough for an office usage
> and internet.
> I`m using on my both main computers the following software:
> /Mozilla Thunderbird, Mozilla Firefox, Trillian 3, Skype, WinSCP,
> Putty, WinMTR
> OpenOffice 3.1
> Scribus (184.108.40.206), Inkscape, Gimp, Blender, Google Sketchup
> Aimp, Media Player Classic, VirtualDub (and Mod), ffdshow(k-lite+etc),
> Avisynth, Jahshaka
> 7zip, Infrarecorder/
> qemu (emulating OLPC -XO-)
> On my laptop is also installed: xHarbour, Harbour, Borland C++ 5.5,
> OpenWatcom, PellesC, Firebird 2.1 and FlameRobin, plus some special
> text editors.
> And the Athlon 3000 also has: Audition and Audacity.
> Again: Flawlessly
> Everytime i find a 64bits version of any program, i give it a try,
> usually they work fine, unless on beta or alike.
> Every 32bits program has worked as always did.
> Dont fall into scare, if you seek for issues, surely you`ll find some,
> i'm always trying to find solutions, and i had never found any issue.
> Anyway, there has been nothing that didn't work, except for some very
> very old programs, mostly DOS, but they work on virtalbox+freedos,
> bochs, qemu or any other emulator/VM.
> There is also some really old hardware that does not work, but even an
> old SoundBlaster live! value is working (kxdriver).
> Have a nice time reinstalling.
> PS: BTW, almost everything is also working fine on Linux (x64).....
