There is no option for yes and not having used the RC.

Preordered on Amazon the first day it was available.

You don't need to upgrade hardware.

Today hardware are cheap as hell anyways.

I am able to install Windows 7 on a 10 year old laptop (Dell Inspiron 8000). Used to have Windows 2000. That's mean it runs better than XP.. You should get Windows 7. XP is going down this year.

I already have the latest RTM build installed, but I chose Windows Server 2008 R2, as it is less bloated.

I'm still on the official win7 RC.

Will definitely go RTM with a new machine.

I experienced many blue screens of death and crashes in otherwise stable software, when i ran the RC.

I later found out that the RC is an old version/build of windows 7 and that the rtm is a better build... so i'm trying out build 7600 x64 to see if it's not s*** like the RC is.

I haven't been running the RC, but I am happy with Vista and this is an improvement on that, so yes I'm upgrading. Already bought a technet subscription for the release of the RTM (and Office 2010 next year).

. or as we say it wukkin.

I can attest to that too judging by the RC version!

Though I haven't had much use of the RC version, I can still definitely say my experiences with it have been pleasurable and I would upgrade to the RTM.

well if build 7600 is any indication (or really RTM version)

whar are the differences???

none really. Other than it does boot a lot faster,

3D?

my 3D Vantage scores seems same (pretty much between build 7100, 7200 7600), Crysis and Far Cry2 benchmark?

about same (all though I have changed video drivers on my 9800 GX2 a few times though...with i7 920)

but really no difference

I bet the verified RTM will be no difference, a tiny tweak here and there

it is obvious to everyone that Windows 7, is just Vista done proper.

everything they did (even DX11) I am sure could have been updated to Vista

(but I guess Gill Gates needs some more cash for his retirement fund...lol)

but yah. Vista wasn't bad, and Windows 7 is faster booting and openning apps, I would get RTM, and probably purchase even (forced to for DX11 anyway...lol)

funny thing

the only thing I found that doesn't work in Windows 7?

my LIFECAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Microsoft Webcam! lol

it didn't work in RC, and in Windows 7, they pop up a box stopping it from running, due to problems

lol

the only thing that don't work in Microsoft Beta OS is a Microsoft product!!!

but yah,(7600) boots faster and thats it, I bet RTM will even have a few MINOR tweaks like that thrown in.

I don't really understand why people think W7 is so good, Everytime I install it, its nether faster or more compatible than XP on my desktop or Vista on my laptop. I always had to go back to XP or Vista because something just won't work properly. Do people have something special in there computers that work better with W7 or something cos I just don't see how much better W7 is compared to XP or Vista. I find the GUI a bit anoying also, every icon opens up a menu with a gazillion options? seriously I just need one option open or closed...

I'm actually someone who used to be obsessed about having the latest stuff, probably still am a little, but when the latest isn't exactly better, I find it hard to understand what so good about it.

Try to get used to it or look in the options...
