on my way to 700 installations of windows 7, i've decided i won't include virtual installations using virtual pc, virtual server/hyper-v or other virtualization products (it doesn't seem fair to count them).  i will however be counting reinstallations and installations on the same hardware.  yesterday i installed my first virtual pc 2007 sp1 installation of the windows 7 beta.  it installed and in another example of compatibility, i was able to install the virtual extensions successfully.  sam my 10 year old will be making the transition on his own computer this weekend (i'm going to work with him installing it dual boot).  it's not a netbook exactly - he received an emachine d620 for christmas and i have been surprised by how much he loves it (like father, like son!)
