Got the same problem... the beta has been running so damn good that it's not really worth the trouble to re-install. Unfortunately the beta will stop working in a couple of weeks, so I don't have much choice
Been thinking of buying a laptop for ages, but after using Windows 7 there's no way I'll be paying for Vista, I'm not ordering anything until they've released it.

Adds internet speed to list of reasons to move to Europe :P

I have played with windows 7 in Virtual Box, it is pretty nice, task bar still seems a little strange to me, I never used Vista so I would also have to learn UI but other than that it is pretty nice and Snappy for sharing 2GB of ram with OSX

Yeesh.. that is going hard on the interhighway..
Only the Scandinavians have those kinds of connections really.. I'm in The Netherlands pimping a 20Mbit down/1Mbit up
The only reason I haven't jumped onboard the Seven ship is because of the COD4 punkbuster issues..

Using it as my main OS and it seems to be running smoother than XP.

Moved my main system to Windows 7 RC. It's a lot more responsive, faster, overall better than Vista and XP. Good OS.

Been using Beta 7000 since it first came out and I like it a lot; had issues installing my X-Fi USB sound card at first but I came across some hacked drivers which got me by until Creative released their own (which really didn't improve upon the hacked ones; they were very good hacks!). Guess I'll have to format in a couple weeks and install the RC...*sigh*. Also, that speed is redonculous!

Bless all of you lab rats. I'm a wuss and stick to what's stable. Didn't Vista just get there in the last year or two??

If you are in Europe, make sure you have a flashdrive with a webbrowser installer in it if you plan to buy Windows 7.

I haven't had a single blue screen in 7, or even a freeze. Then again I can't recall ever having a blue screen in Vista either. XP on the other hand...

limited pre-orders for windows 7 upgrade have started and go on until July 11th, not a bad deal at 50% of retail price which brings home premium to $49 and pro to $99 respectively. Both 32 and 64bit versions are included on these discs.

While I was planning on upgrading from Vista, I was going to wait at least a month or so just in case there are some issues that need to be worked out. With the pre-order price though, I'll probably order it now and just hold onto it for a few weeks before I do the install. I'm wondering if we'll see any discounted offers even below the pre-order price.

I just took the plunge. Does anyone know if I can install on two machines (we have two Vista and two XP machines in the house)? I'm going to leave the two XP machines (both Netbooks) alone.
