A couple of days ago I finally managed to get my hands on the latest hype, Windows 7, and to give it a spin. The first impression I got after installing the new OS went to the performance improvements it offered – it felt better than Vista, and the boot up time was really impressive. Then came the appreciation of the UI improvements which seem to be a natural evolution of the features Vista introduced.

Win7 goodies aside, I am happy to say that RadControls for WinForms run perfectly fine on the beta – there are no hiccups, messed layouts or otherwise improper behavior. The only minor problem we saw was with the RadRibbonBar (due to changed behavior of the AddPath method in GDI+), which has been addressed and released in Q3 SP2.

If you consider yourself an early adopter and decide to use the beta of Windows 7 as your primary OS, feel free to start developing with RadControls for WinForms right away.
