MSNDAA ftw!

I'm glad my school gets MSDNAA. Saves me some money, especially on full version since it's free.

I've preordered the x64 Pro version, but I'm still working on RC wrinkles, so I hope they have them ironed out by the release date.

I'm on 32 bit, coming from XP Home. It actually helped solve some crashes I was getting in XP after overclocking. So far I love it, and all my programs are working great. It's a lot faster, or so it seems that way. Only program I haven't tried to install is the drivers for my Creative MP3 player, but I'm going to hope that the Vista edition will work with 7.

EDIT: Pretty awesome, Windows 7 recognized the mp3 player and installed minimal drivers for it, which is actually what i wanted because the bundled software was terrible. I love this OS, haha.

Upgrading my home machine from Windows Vista Ultimate (32-bit) to Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) sometime after launch, within the first month. My wife will be selling her old XP machine for a MAC.

Good to hear. Lemme know how it goes with the Creative Mp3. I myself own an 8GB Zen.

This format/reinstall will prolly keep me busy for most of the night.

Heh, just edited my post probably right before your reply. On my Zen Vision:M the software was decent, but with the Zen X-Fi i had to use Creative Centrale which i hated. I mostly used windows media player to sync music and videos anyways. The windows media player on 7 seems to organize and import songs a lot better, too.

vista does the same, creative software is not necessary.

Creative MP3 playes are PayForSure devices (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win.../playsforsure/) no drivers are needed, all included in OS

Going from Vista Home Premium x64 to 7 Home Premium x64, got 7 RC installed and it works perfectly. Not using any of the Ultimate stuff so I will stick with Home Premium

I'm thinking the same, but I really really want to get an SSD to go with it.

The current Belkin drivers for my Wireless 'N' USB adapter won't install. I think I've found a way round it though. But TBH I'm a bit fed up with the rigmarole of installing betas every few weeks. I'm just gonna wait for the full release and bung it on the SSD.
