They should force 64bit only.

They should have done this with Vista.

Oh well Windows 8 i guess..

I think it is already better than Vista

GUI looks better - better taskbar(assuming you guys aren't using the Vista taskbar), and the libraries are very handy

It could just be a placebo, but on my laptop it feels faster than Vista as well - which ran just fine.

No it isn't. If you haven't unlocked the new Windows 7 visuals...then yes it is, but no version of windows is all that different appearance wise (besides looking more "pretty")

It boots quicker and everything feels "snappier"

-The new taskbar is the greatest invention in windows history bar none.
-It is much much faster than Vista
-All of the controls, UI and Layout are much betther thought out.
-Even though this is a Beta im ganna use it as my main OS.

And everything is working as it should - no weird crasher or something like that? I'm pretty tempted to try it out, but I'm not sure if I'd be comfortable going back to using a 32bit OS. Are there any compatibility issues with programs/drivers?

You can enable the new task bar in Window 7 here: http://www.technixupdate.com/windows...cks-and-hacks/

I have not had the system crash on me yet but I am not playing crysis or anything. I am using Nvidia 178.24 drivers without any issues at all.

The only downside is IE8 Beta 2 does not work with all sites so just stick to firefox.

Forgot to add im using 64 bit with 64-bit media player. I heard some problems with 32-bit media player so i just skipped it.
