    I am sticking with the RC until it expires. I can't afford an official DVD, and won't be able to for a while, so I'll be using XP come June 2010.

    I have decided I will stick with Vista until Christmas holidays. I've read far too many posts about games not launching etc I'd rather not have to go through the trouble of finding workarounds, that and I am really not looking forward to reinstalling about 30 games and tons of programs onto a new OS unless it will be a painless transition. Hopefully, by then most of the games and programs I use will work fine on Windows 7.

    I really don't see any reason why people wouldn't move to W7 unless money is an issue. I will be moving on to W7 myself.

    Aren't there still issues with games? I don't quite understand why there would be since Windows 7 drivers are supposed to be like Vista but that bugs me.

    I have just resently installed the "release candidate" version of windows 7 and must say, in terms of being resource hungry it is by far better than vista!

    I recently built a new PC for my sister and decided to put Windows 7 on it mostly out of curiosity to see how it looked and ran many games I have on my PC. So far it has been problem free and I love many of the new features (such as not rebooting after display driver install) if not for the time consuming task of reinstalling 30+ games I would have switched to Windows 7 by now.

    I have grown to like XP very much. Vista left me disappointed. Win 7 is a possibility, but the more I research, the more I want to try a Hackintosh build with OSX.

    I'm keeping Debian, it's way faster to work with than any version of Windows I've used including Vista. Never tried Windows 7 yet.

    I agree. It's hard to have an opinion on something one haven't tried.

    I have a license for Win7 thanks to being a beta tester, but haven't used it yet, because my wife has Vista, and setting up a Vista-Win7 network turned out to be a problem. We just got a new printer with WiFi (not yet unpacked), and since printer sharing is the main reason we needed networking, there's a chance I'll be able to move to Win7 now.
