Win 7 RTM 7600 Ultimate 64-bit

Yes just load 7229 x64 and be done with it already. :)

Windows7 7229 x64

7000 was near-unusable for me - any build is better than that

Windows 7 Build 7229 64bit + Vista ultimate 64 bit

I have 7100 beta installed on eee pc 1000 ssd and that some preinstall compression to get on there it was a bit of a pain to get going. But the clock is ticking and have to do it. I have to tell you the beta is very very fast and I am sure 72xx will be very fast indeed.

Definitely check 7229 or 7232 out.
Likewise, 7232 x64 is AWESOME (fastest and best yet) on my Lenovo T61p. The difference is really noticeable. And this is on an "upgrade" install. Very happy I bothered to upgrade to 7232 from 7229. Well worth the minor tweaking that was required (took about 10 minutes after the install was finished). The upgrade install did take a couple of hours on my machine, however, probably because I have so many apps installed. Well worth the downtime though and much easier than spending the next couple of days reinstalling apps and settings.

But any of the recent builds are better than the original beta. No need to be afraid. Just do an easy upgrade install.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

In 7000, I pretty much encountered a bug every 5-10 minutes or so. Startup felt like it took 5 minutes, lots of programs stopped responding, and didn't properly shut down most of the time. Once I upgraded to 7068, startup was around 30-45 seconds, some programs stopped responding, and maybe 1 or 2 problems, if not no, problems during shutdown. I clean installed 7077, 7100, 7201, and I am finally at 7229. Personally, I think 7229 is almost RTM quality.
