Anyone who does switch is either broke or a moron.

You can download the RC free from Microsoft's site. Try before you buy.
Did you mean anyone who doesn't switch?

Vista Home Premium x64 here and it's smooth as butter. I have a few friends that have pre-ordered Win7 and if it runs the proggies that matter to me better than my Vista install, I'll make the switch. There's no need for me to be an early adopter...so I'll wait.

I bought the Home Premium upgrade disc for my desktop computer which is running Win 7 RC now and I may also get it for my wife's laptop although it is running pretty decent with Vista Home Premium SP2

I'll switch. I dual boot XP and vista ultimate and ultimate (or vista in general) is just...confusing. So much is moved around and changed I had a difficult time adjusting.

Here's hoping Windows 7 doesn't suck. At least I'll get it for $50 like I did VU. Buddy of mine works at M$.

People really found Vista that confusing?

Pretty much everything was in the exact same place. And if it wasn't, it was in a submenu under the original place...

I didn't like how they moved stuff in Vista either. I really didn't mess with Vista much since it's only on our laptop and I don't really like laptops all that much so I don't mess with them either.
I have gotten accustom to where Win 7 moved things pretty quickly. Is it much different than Vista for those who have used both a lot?

Vista and Windows 7 share a lot of features in their interface.

The vast majority of anti-Vista stuff I read is just b.s. apparently, regurgitated from blogs and/or misguided views on how things work.

However, I do like the new stuff in Win 7 and will be there when it is released on MSDN

I wish I would've gotten pre-order. I installed the RC yesterday and I'm in love with Windows 7.

What build are you currently running? All smooth sailing or have you had any troubles?

I'm currently downloading the x64 version from Microsoft's website, and I plan on installing it tonight.
