Are you going to purchase Windows 7? If so then why would you not try the builds inbetween to watch how the product develops?

If you don't like Windows Vista, you aren't going to like Windows 7. There really isn't all that much of a difference with SP2 vista and Windows 7.

The only negative I can really see at the minute is for COD4, Punkbuster will not run on Windows 7. The game runs so smoothly but Punkbuster say they will not support a BETA OS (Even though it was in...

No I love Vista, but it's disabled in vista, it litterally can't be done.

They've re-enabled it in 7.

From what i understand about that build, it could be the build itself which is the problem. I'd recommend just updating to the next build. I almost installed it myself, but ended up skipping it.
