I've been holding the 64bit RC here thinking about trying it. really worried about drivers and such. I do use pretty standard name brand chipsets.

Currently on XP on this system not having any problems. create another partition and go for it? Is it worth it?

Windows 7...

Like all previous OS's, play with it but give it about a year to mature before you start going crazy and installing it on everything you see (especially your own box). Better to have a higher compatibility ratio than a higher feature ratio.

Well said.

Red,

On the note of you still using XP... any particular reason you haven't upgraded to Vista 64bit yet? It is a mature product and that is probably the first step before you dive into Windows 7.

$300? That's like 2 Windows Vista copies or 1x Office Professional copies but you get just about everything and 10x licenses or cals of everything too.

Easy cost IMO.

i went XP to Vista 32bit (and hated it but stick with it) to windows 7 RC 64bit and loving it. Have had no driver issue so far and I've actually had less driver problems than I did when I went to Vista.

I'm using it as my main OS and I'm reali enjoying it.
