Sorry, I was joking, hence the roll eyes. I was making light of how some people here react when something new comes out. They act like their OS/Browser/Hardware can no longer be used and is instantly obsolete.

Kinect? Really? Wait do you mean controlled like a Kinect? Or controlled like a Kinect WITH a Kinect?

As for Game mode, not sure what else they can do, 7 seems to run games really well... Then again, what do we have to compare to? ::

Game mode I just dont want stuff running that isn't needed which I suppose is already the case? Not sure if I want to boot into GFWL though

Maybe I should just use my 360,

No wait, its ****.

Yup. I'm pretty happy with Win7. I do have to admit my knee-jerk reaction is "No Way", but realistically I'll wait til it's out for a few months, read feedback etc etc and decide from there.

Maybe I can use it to justify a solid hardware upgrade.

I think Win 7 is now the XP.

Yeah Win 7 just runs to good to upgrade. They would have to work some amazing magic to get me to switch.

I had no problems with windows XP ,It is probbaly my favorite because I new everthing about it.I went to vista beause microsoft kindly made you since some games would not run on XP even tho they could have .I got vista bexause I wanted 64bit system ,I still can't see that windows 7 is any better then vista was,In fact I have never liked windows 7 ,I guess I was just used to vista .

I used Vista from beta and Windows 7 from beta all on the same hardware and 7 is easier to use and feel faster all over. Now having moved to SSD I can't go back. Vista lacks 7s SSD feature set. Often it's the small things that can make an upgrade worth it.
