I agree. I have an MSDN account so I've been running the RTM since the first day it was released on MSDN. I've been running Win 7 x64 on my main rig since the first beta and haven't had any major problems. When Vista came out, a lot of my apps required upgrades so that they could run at all; I have'nt had to upgrade anything to run on Win 7. I had been running Vista x86 because there was no Cisco VPN support for x64, but on Win 7 I can run the VPN client in Virtual XP mode! I agree that the price of Win 7 is very high, but it is kind of a moot point for me. I haven't paid for an OS in years. I make sure that I attend a Microsoft launch event for each new OS and get a free copy. In fact, the one for Win 7 is coming up in a couple of weeks.
