However, I find the fact that I don't even get significant slowdown when I'm doing heavy editing in Sony Vegas and have a gazillion apps open is wonderful. Normally I would disable aero and window composition in such cases for Vista, but not so for Seven.
ha...

Hehe, I usually have Sony Vegas, Adobe Fireworks(I use that with a bunch of plugins instead of Photoshop for photo editing, I think its more streamlined though not as powerful), GIMP(for anything that might not be in fireworks, almost as powerful as photoshop), AIM and MSN, and a bunch of tabs in SRWare Iron. Once in a while I'll have my Cinema 4D open as well, as well as Adobe AfterEffects. So yea, I have a bunch of stuff open XD

lmfao - funny, I beta tested Vista on a P4 3.2 GHz machine with 3 GB of RAM and a VisionTek x1650Pro AGP Video Card with 512MB of vram....Vista runs great on my current rig, but I know already in the little bit I used it that W7 is gonna run a boatload faster and it looks better and it is every bit as stable....
