    Don't have any personal experience with it yet, I'll get back to you in two days. I'm running XP now.

    My techie friends who beta-tested it said it was amazing, as big a jump from XP, as XP was from 95. Luckily, I've got the academic discount, and so ordered my Windows 7 pro for $35.

    I'm getting it in two hours! Can't wait...

    I just bought a laptop with Vista but I got a coupon for Windows 7 free. It is supposed to ship 10/25.

    Yea, I am a MAC guy...... I'm not ashamed.

    I had written a long explanation but really, what's the point, most take my enthusiasm for Apple the wrong way. I hope Windows 7 is everything they claim it will be, you guys deserve to finally be almost as happy as we are with OSX........ good luck with that.:razz:

    This is being written from a Win 7 machine. It definitiely performs better than Vista.

    I did add a high performance video card and went with 64 bit. 8GB DDR3 and dual core.
    It better perform well.

    Indeed. Except, I'll admit, how to masterfully stack luggage, tetris-style, on a cart to be wheeled to the tarmac. I bow to your expertise in this particular field of knowledge.

    thats how im getting my copy as well. I look forward to the upgrade. XP users get ready for a format and full install. Start backing up now.


    and don't worry about Shitarro. The endometrial lining of his uterus is starting to swell and discharge.
