So is this better than XP you guys think?

Vista is better than XP and seven is vista on the outside with a somewhat remodeled innards. In other words, definitely.

Junk angel;4963393uh I think 3 gigs for the 32-bit version and something along 6-7 for the 64-bit version. Not precisely sure.

The 64-bit image is about the same size as the 32-bit one, just over 3GB.

So is this better than XP you guys think?

Its much better i think.

I think Windows 7 is great, possibly worth buying with my current setup. Fewer issues than XP.

It hasn't been released yet. Its still a RC.

Yes it has. OEMs already have it and new PCs are being shipped with it, TechNet/MSDN/Action Pack subscribers get the RTM August 6th

So, you're saying that Windows 7 is sitting in stores right now under a retail package?

No, of course not. But I would expect at least a few businesses to already have copies for OEM distribution after release day, and for stocking shelves once release day comes.

Its kind of funny really... Thinking back to the DRM brouhaha of Vista. Vista was doomed from the day it was named.

Windows 7 on the other hand, actually has a fighting chance. Especially with its Windows XP mode for chipsets that support virtualization. Businesses will likely adopt it, knowing that Windows XP can only be supported for so long. That and the fact that Win7 is both scalable forward, and backwards, as well as for low end machines, and faster ones.

October 22nd for the end users. But yes, it's been in RTM for a little while now.

Yep, Geek Pty Ltd get their copy August 12th, a week after it's offical Action Pack/TechNet/MSDN RTM. So in two weeks, I'll be running RTM'd Win 7 at work and home. So excited!

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7100.

It neither detects the drivers for my frontech web cam nor does it accept the drivers which i have (manufacturers CD).

The installation setup never completes, it seems to have entered in to a deadlock.

I must admit that barring this exception, i was not asked for any other drivers like sound, display etc. - everything was smooth.

Would appreciate if somebody could throw some light on this.

It's not Windows 7 thats at fault 'sureideas' It's the manufacturer doesn't have appropriate drivers for Vista letalone Win 7 ALL Vista drivers work on Win 7, contact the manufacturer to obtain the correct drivers.
