    We've been using the release candidate on of our PCs for a while - it's pretty nice. Our upgrade is due 29th Oct (no I don't why there's a delay? :unsure: )

    So looking forward to all the PCs in the house going over! :yes:

    I use Vista but my bother hates it and uses XP, I'm happy as long as it works and I can do what I want.

    I liked XP but Vista made me stone cold which was when I defected , interesting how many of the features they are selling win7 bear a striking resemblance to some other systems ;)

    win 98 omg talkabout live in the dark ages.....most BSoD' are the wrong drivers, ie written by MS to get the machine up and running, the you download the correct manufacturers ones, or even a bad memory stick, the codes are there to determine what the probs are.

    ive never ever had a BSoD at home :D

    even you said yourself SL has its faults :wink: :taunt:

    Everyone knows I'm a unix/mac guy but windows 7 is really good. It's what vista should have been for sure.

    Some things are done even better than on macosx (shock!). The task bar at the bottom now just shows one icon per set of windows (rather like a certain macosx ;) BUT when you click on the icon, you get a full mini preview of every window open AND closed for that application making it very easy to see which windows you want to click on.

    I still think macosx is better and laptop wise, there simply isnt a pc laptop in the world to touch the macbook pro (in my humble opinion) but windows 7 is a really good worthwhile upgrade. In fact, if anyone reading this has Vista left on a machine, either downgrade it immediately to xp or buy windows 7. It'll feel like you've bought a brand new faster machine

    Yep windows 98 and if we upgrade or do any updates the whole server crashes pretty much on the NHS - I kid you not
