Latest update from Torley Linden via Second Life Answers. This was posted up on the How soon before Windows 7 & SL are compatible? in mid November 2009. Check out my last post on SL Windows 7. Latest SL Answer Windows 7 posts…:)
I don’t have a date on this but our Quality Assurance peeps know, and when we’ve ratified Windows 7 good and proper, our System Requirements page will formally state this (it should also be updated to include all those new GPUs… anyone else drooling over those ATI Radeon 5870s yet?): http://secondlife.com/support/sysreqs.php
I’m currently using Windows 7 32-bit on a Q6600 w/GeForce 8800GTS and it mostly works fine. By “mostly”, I mean there’ll be occasions I start up SL and it has horribly slow framerate despite minimal activity elsewhere. Not sure what’s causing it but it may be because I have something else going on, and I haven’t seen widespread reports of this. Overall, Windows 7 has been a better experience for me than Vista.
This is some good news at least. I will post more updates in the near future on the latest news relating Windows 7 with SL.
