Yes, the space it requires on disk is huge, Vista was the same. My hardware is more then capable of running it.

That doesn't mean I'll stop running it, just disappointed they didn't focus on reducing bloat in disk size.

This thread is hilarious.

Anyone reading this who has tried 7 and prefers Vista/XP/Jaunty/Mac - fair enough - each to their own.

For those who want to buy 7 and can't decide which Edition - this may help:

Hey I know that they can lower the disk size a bit but it could come down to two things....HD size is enormous now and cheap, most new computers come with HDs so big it bewilders me (I have never been able to use more than 60GB....) and the being of 7 compared to XP....7 has alot more code to it because there is more of it....XP is very basic with windows that don't do anything....basic apps included by default (and not many of them)....and very early versions of them as well (without no inclusions of new features or bug fixing or what not)....and a really bad security layer. Maybe if they plan on revamping Windows itself with Windows 8, disk usage might come back into the spotlight (but I highly doubt it)

Vista Ult 64bit - Windows 7 Ult 7264 64bit
 
 

I guess the ones who are disappointed with W7 because they think there's just a few UI changes and tweaks really haven't read about (or understand) the changes to the core of the system, and are only relying on what they "See".
There have been MAJOR kernel upgrades that make 7 more stable and secure over both older OS's, and so many other function changes that are too numerous to list right now. Maybe you guys should find out what's changed under the hood and not just at the paint job before making those statements.

I must say, that's a front loaded poll. I obviously answered yes, and on a forum called "seven forum", I expect that poll to be 20-1 ratio on YES!
