Windows 7, anyone ?

I've been using windows 7 (ultimate) beta version, for a few weeks,
I must admit that I'm not that keen on it at present, very much like using vista,
maybe in a few years time when its ironed out a few problems I'll have changed my mind
but for now, for me Win XP Pro rules.........

.....have moved over to Mac.....the whole lot of gizmos I have is Mac now.....

...Just fed up with Windows....they just can't bring out a system that will work on day one...and when it is nicely settled, they bring out another version.....

...Just fed up with the buggers....so have ditched them for good....

Running Win7 64 beta on both my gaming and my trading rigs. No problems at all, much less of a memory hog than Vista.

....Why bring out Win 7 when XP is doing great job...??....

....MS has always issued different operating systems on a willy nilly basisi....

....Windows 3.0.....Then 95....98....Millennium...

...NT....

XP.....Vista....

...and now Win 7...and the EEC people will NOT get upgrade version....They will have to pay full price..!

IF it works why change it...?

Running WIndows 7 Enterprise here since about a month. Slowly moving all workstations over Works likea charm, very nice. Great move forward, I really like some of the gems in there (taskbar with previews - now I need a trading software using it; remote desktop for MULTIPLE SCREENS finally; ability to boot from VHD files, so I can keep multiple installs around without partitioning; ability to play back dvd's without third party, as well as integrate Divx). Lots of nice evolutionary things under the hood
