Windows 7 in it's current state is much better than Vista and I can run it on my laptop and Netbook. I'm just tired of installing new betas every few weeks and having to use compatibility mode for some things.
While I do agree with your earlier thought on RTM by July / August, I don't see releasing it as it is right now. There are still some things to polish up. However, I assume you were not being literal but I do get what you are saying. Bottom line...release it sooner rather than later.

Seven is definately looking far more refined at this stage than any other beta I have participated in before and that goes back to Windows 95. The Vista beta was the worst by far.
