    After a couple of months of using windows7, since it was alpha, I think it is safe to say this one thing and one thing only - I AM GETTING A MAC !!

    I do like it. There are just some incompatibilities with that are not right. I am sure they will be worked out. But it gets annoying when it happens ...

    I wouldn't say that I am a traitor lol

    Yea, this might actually be the first OS I go and buy on release day, cause I am cool like that. Unless its a very VERY crazy price.

    I am finding issues with program compatibility, windows media player video playbacks, and printers. I am also kinda tired of this theme . I want to be able to skin it like vista and such, not have the same type toolbar look all the time.

    I am sure that the little annoyances and kinks will be worked, maybe when sp1 one comes out in December; either way, it is a real annoyance at times. I will probably be putting vista back in ..

    well, I did some research and think I found the issue. After looking at a couple of support sites and various google searches, it appears to be the x64 os, so instead of putting vista back in, I am going to be putting windows7 x68 in ..
