I recently installed Windows 7 Beta on an old laptop of mine (Pentium M, 1.69 GHz, 1GB RAM) to see how it runs on older hardware and basically test out the new OS from Redmond. I'm very impressed at the overall feel (it's quite snappy!) and seems to be running great.
The most noticeable change is the Taskbar. Here's an article from arstechnica.com that does a great job outlining the functionality of the new Windows 7 Taskbar, and even talks about how it's different than Apple's OSX Dock. Worth a read!
