So I got Win 7 installed and with only minor hassles I got all drivers installed, even the ones that wouldn't work. I eventually one. Now my only problem is Vista. I like it and it works great. I don't think I'm ready to let go because I just paid for the OEM version not even a year ago. Sure, I didn't pay for Win 7, but it feels like I'm throwing money away by not using Vista x64 . Anyone else suffer from the same Dilemma?
Nope, I'm triple booting XP, Vista and 7RC so I can compare functionality in all three OSs. I intend to continue triple booting after 7's release until I am convinced that it can do it all and the others are superfluous.
I bought Vista Ultimate 64bit and used it for about 4 months before I switched to Windows 7 RC1. I kept Vista until we bought my wife a new laptop and opted for the cheapest OS option, and when it arrived we wiped the drive and installed my Vista 64 on it. When Windows 7 comes out in a week or so I'm definitely going to get each of us a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. I'm excited to see what the battery life will look like with Windows 7.
I'll most likely continue to dual boot for the foreseeable future until I get an SSD. Then I'll switch to Win 7 for the TRIM command. That's literally the only thing I am curious about in Win 7. The rest just seems like incremental upgrades, as it should. I don't want to go through the hassle of setting up an SSD in Vista, so I'll keep my mechanical drives spinning until SSDs come down further in price.
