This made windows 7 build 7000 faster than XP and vista. This is great because it outperforms the still much loved XP, and yes it will be a hit, but not a big hit, because everybody knows, windows 7 is just a tweaked version of vista with all these vista bloat removed, core tweaked, improved and fixed.

Am currently running the windows 7 build 7077, and i must say it really fly's compare to vista and xp.
Just cant wait for the final version..
I completely disagree. I have been running 7077 since it first came out and it has too many bugs. It will not recognize my esata drive unless I rescan disks in computer management. It will not go into or come out of sleep mode without a BSOD. It is bulkier and slower than XP. It is just a stripped down version of Vista with a few bug fixes. After going back to XP, it felt like I had a much faster computer and definetly more stable.

There are many Windows 7 fanboys here obviously, but reality will set in sooner or later or MS will fix the bugs and streamline the kernel before putting out an RC.

After the Vista experience, I don't have much faith in MS anymore to do anything for their customers until forced to by the marketplace.

And Why not. VM solutions are a finally making a serious inroad into the "Corporate workplace".

Imagine you have 30,000 PC's (OK a bit extreme I know but companies like SHELL etc have these types of numbers in their networks.).

On the Monday morning after Windows 7 upgrade do you really want a load of users who don't do anything other than email / powerpoint / spreadsheet stuff or access a CRM type application to say "Where have all my applications gone" because the basic menu system has changed.

Virtual machines and Virtual servers might just make the whole transistion far far easier for businesses.

Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64
 
 

If I was running a business network, I would think twice about migrating to a new OS until SP1 was out.

Welcome to the Seven Forums, RCrash. Enjoy.

I have been running this same build as well, and had no problems. The official build 7000 had many bugs that i experienced, but since i installed the leaked build, all my problems are gone. They have fixed alot of bugs.

I agree with you on this one, i have the same problem as well. Am sure MS are working on this, or maybe its fixed for their RC release build coming out soon.

I completely disagree on this one. Yes the overall install size is bigger compare to xp, but i would not says its bulky. This build 7077 outperforms vista and xp. Am running xp and Windows 7 build 7077 dualboot, and the overall speed difference compare to vista or xp is HUGE.
(Maybe you should update your drivers, that could help with your overall Windows 7 speed)

Thats what i said in my previous post. It is just a second version of vista, with a different name and few added features and tweaks/fixes.

I do plan to migrate all my servers to Windows 2008 R2 (Win 7 server basically) and Windows 7 when it is released. I will migrate half my servers to the beta of R2 after a bit more testing. I will migrate half my workstations to Win 7 RC when it comes out if it performs as well as 7077 does. (We have about 100 work stations.)

Reason I'm doing this is to get the user base (the more knowledgable ones) up to speed on the changes coming. I've already tested all of our work programs with 7 and the website we use most often. They all work perfectly. With the added administration and networking features of 7, my job will actually become easier when we migrate.

I don't mean to sound rude, but this is a pretty... not sure of the word... lets just say "not-well-developed" post. I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble with 7077, but your sole experience cannot account for the experiences of the rest of us.

For the grand majority of peole 7077 seems to be quite a nice release. And these are intermittent builds that no-one is supposed to be getting anyways.

Microsoft had a big blunder with vista overall. I stopped using Windows altogether and moved on to using Ubuntu. Now I'm back with Windows because of Windows 7, thats how much of an impact its made for me and others.

Have you been tracking what Microsoft has been doing with Windows 7? They've listened to virtually every major complaint I can think of, and that I found astounding as I followed the dev-team's progress. Listening to user feedback on UAC, adding aero-peek to alt-tab, making different versions of windows 7 incremental(professional has all the features of home, enterprise all the feautures of pro, etc), making the attenton status of taskbar icons more visible, among tons of other things, I actually feel very "proud" of microsoft. It's the first time I truly liked them as a company in a long time.

No offense meant, but I thought I would defend MS a bit, because I think they're doing a great job with 7.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
 
 

Given that everyone and their dog has a PC now, and having used Windows 7 as my main OS for months, i can only see it being a hit TBH. Granted i dont speak for everyone, but the general consensus, on here, and everywhere else for that matter would suggest massive hit.
