Re: Windows 7
I got my copy off MSDNAA and installed 2 copies last week. So far very pleased w/ it. Consumes less resources (< 1GB vs >1.5GB of Vista), a lot less HDD thrashing, and applications open noticeably faster, which was especially immediate as soon as I played around it a little bit. Games run a little faster on 7 than they were on Vista. Looks very very slick too. When I was coming from XP to Vista I thought Vista was pretty slick-looking, but 7 beats V to it. Default desktop backgrounds are surprisingly pleasant to look at unlike the generic ones in V and in XP & haven't run into compatibility issue as of yet. It's a little to early to conclusively judge but this is the best & prettiest OS I have ever used. Granted after about a week of use, I will never go back to V again.
