Basically I said that other people had some "problems" with W7, not that you were "everybody"

I cant burn the .iso in xp or vista

If I use my product key in Virtualbox will I still be able to install it properly afterwards when I find a pc that doesnt crash during burning?

Do you get 30 days like a retail version?

I think it doe give the 30 days. If you need more keys though, go to that blog, or the actual key-giving-out page and grab a few more. I have a few saved just in case.

Actually most people are having a positive experience with W7. So while you are correct - he isn't everybody - he is definitely more representative.

I never said whether he was "more" or "less" representative.

But as for W7 being good for a lot of people, that would not be surprising!

I'm running the build 7100 TC and it's running great. However, is there a point in keeping it since there are leaks of advanced builds? Should I keep it going or just get back to vista? Are MS still updating build 7100 RC?
