Podcast Episode #1 – Windows 7 Beta 1 Review


Windows 7 Beta 1 Review

I’ve never done any kind of audio recording or editing that would be publicly heard, so bear with me on this first episode of the podcast.

I’d like to take the podcast and make it a piece of audio every week that discusses some topic that has come up for me in my every day life as a geek. I haven’t planned a roadmap for this, so I’m not quite sure where it’s going to go, or even if it’s going to go.

I’ve been thinking of doing some sort of podcast for a long time now, mostly inspired by podcasts like The Linux Action Show. I don’t have any kind of fancy equipment, just a gaming headset and a version of Audacity to record my stuff. So expect a non-top-notch show, and if time goes on and things get better, maybe I can learn some new stuff and really advance my place in the audio world.

I am recording this with the onboard soundcard, as I don’t think I have a soundcard laying around that I could use for more serious recording. You might here a bit of high-pitched noise, and that’s most likely to do with the way that onboard soundcards work.

In addition to this audio review, which was recorded just about 24 hours after I installed Windows 7 Beta 1, I plan on doing a new post in about a week with my thoughts after using it in regular situations.

All this being said, I hope you like what I have to say, and I promise I’ll do better next time. Use the widget below to listen to it streaming in your browser:

    Not bad for a first attempt, actually stopped watching 24 to listen to it.

    Updates without IE action has been pretty much been there since XP SP1?

    Can’t wait for the next instalment.
    Maybe you should throw is some vids, check out Jing, I’m sure it records commentary now as well as video of the screen.

    That’s with Automatic Updates in XP. I’ve found that I was looking for a specific thing, and didn’t have to go to the website to find it through IE.
