Yeah I read about this on Micro's website, just waiting on it to come out. I am on win7 7100 at the moment, and it looks great, with the integration of WinXP Mode, it will be one of the best OS's out there... well, for those of us with decent computers anyways, people with low end machines will always complain and blame the OS lol.

i agree with Briansama. am also using the win 7 7000 and it has been great. some hiccups in the beginning but for me, it has been even better than vista. system boot is not more than a minute and boy is it faster!!!! people have always complained about new OS be it xp or vista when it is launched, little have they realised that the computer they purchased 5 years ago, simply doesn't has the juice to run the OS!!! instead of upgrading it, i think they find cribbing easier and affordable ;)
