I will be, I did start the download but it was going to take more time than I was prepared to allow and it got stuck after it had downloaded a couple of hundred MBs so I decided not to bother.

I would have had to start dividing up my disc so it had it's own partition then it would only be valid until August and as I only bought this machine in July it will be a few years before I'm in a position to be able to buy another or even an upgrade OS so I'll do what I usually do and carry on with what I have and read all I can about the new one so when the time comes I'm better able to understand it

I voted 7, although I am (was) a Vista advocate.

Even with the few problems I'm having with 7, (such as trying to get VirtualBox to run, and for some reason Everest won't start and run in the sidebar) this OS shines.

I think this has been a brilliant move on MS's behalf, I'm looking forward to the official release.
