Windows 7 Beta was fun and easy to use, giving me a lot of hope for Windows 7 overall after the horrible experience I had with Vista.

Today, I installed Windows 7 RC1- and control of my computer has been taken away from me. I can't copy files across the network (Administrator access is required? I _AM_ the adminstrator!) UAC raises its ugly, intrusive, domineering head yet again. Once more, I have to fight with an operating system to do simple things, just like in Vista. And my display settings keep changing.

Thanks, Microsoft.

So, I'm at the Microsoft Beta site, trying to download the Windows 7 Beta. This is also the page that gives me my Windows 7 installation key that I should print for my records. But the download is not working, so I figure I'll log out, sign back and try again.

Except every time I hit log out, the page refreshes and generates a new Windows 7 key for me. Leaving me logged in. And still unable to download.

I have five different Windows 7 keys now, and no Windows 7, and no way to log out ...


Microsoft, I am not yet impressed.
