Good luck with that. If the performance hits are as bad in Windows 7 then I think a lot of the systems I play with will stay on XP. But if they can make it efficient, THATS a different story.

A lot of people still uses XP. Heck, a lot of them still uses win98/ME. And with the system reqs Vista has and Win7 will have .. it's just not an option to get it, and a lot of people don't really want to upgrade their computers.

I might get IE7 some day though.. At least I'll try the RC's out (if there will be any) if I have the system for it. :laugh:
