World Wind and Windows 7

Well I just installed World Wind 1.4 onto Windows 7 beta and everything went amazingly easily, I wasn’t asked to update DirectX, or install either Managed DirectX or .Net, great !  After installation all I had to do was right click the desktop shortcut and select ‘run as administrator’ and World Wind popped up in all it’s glory, no connection problems, graphics glitches or anything, colour me impressed.

Also I love the on-screen keyboard in Windows 7, the predictive text makes things go so much faster, I’ve also noticed that it uses no more memory or CPU resources than my default XP install, I think I’m becoming a Windows 7 fanboy, arghh……..
