Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Will you be using Windows 7's new Defragger?

After reading the article at Engineering Windows 7 : Disk Defragmentation – Background and Engineering the Windows 7 Improvements I was more inclined to use the defragger that comes with Windows rather than a 3rd party one.

I believe it to be more thorough than the Vista one and maybe some 3rd party ones as well since it takes several passes. It also is more compatible with Windows 7's new version of NTFS which 3rd party programs wont be currently.

So I shall be using it at least during the time of the beta to get the full Windows 7 experience.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Not quite sure yet, I have a license with Perfect Disk so it makes sense to use it in the moment, but maybe in the future??

Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) dual boot with Fedora KDE

Absolutely loved the fact that it takes multiple passes. At the same time regret that there is still no visual display and no way to view reports as to which files are fragmented and how much.

So, yes! I would use it since it provides all the basic functionality sans the hassles!

Win7 Ultimate x64 on Desktop / Win7 Ultimate x86 on laptop / Win7 x86 Starter on Netbook

I have been using it. The multi-pass feature is good. I have also been using jkdefrag which is also good. Not sure which is best yet?

Windows 7 RC

I've been using the Windows 7 defragger. One feature I like is the weekly schedule. Set it and forget it. The defragger (and the system backup) run at a time when I'm not using my pc. Very convenient.

What is the best FREE Defragger?
Forever I've been using a combo of defraggler, and smartdefrag. I think Defraggler does a good job, but it is seriously lacking in its inability to shut down after a completed defrag.. What is everyone personal favorite one? I really want some concrete answers. Thanks
