I can understand your dilema

The only trial about atm is the enterprise (ultimate) trial for IT pros which I think is still available (Live ID required)

Windows 7 Enterprise| Trial, Evaluation, Test, Deploy

or if you have an RC install media or can borrow one a key shouldn't be a problem

I would have thought you would have had Technet/MSDN or Partner access but it's definitely worthwhile to give it a trial

i dont regret it, i love windows 7, i did a clean install. from windows vista 32bit home premium to windows 7 ultimate 32bit. i didnt hate vista is was ok, spped was pretty good on my machine not to much slower then 7 about 5 seconds-ish. i had network issues with vista, it kept going to limited connectivity. and i dont in 7, also i like the way 7 just finds all the drivers for you, i didnt even hav to download the display driver from win update or from nvidia's site. it was there all right resolution from a clean install, all i had to do is get the control panel for nvidia.

I don't regret it, I skipped Vista like many others due to XP being very stable for me. I got 7 for the directx 11 and stuff.

Windows 95 was great, but Windows 7 rivals Windows 95 as the best Windows yet.

I got Windows 1.0 for free with the purchase of a Hercules InColor card...back around '87. Oh yeah...it was the best PC in the office...and we still lined up to use the Lisa.

Loving version 7.0

uhhhh-no.

I was a huge XP fan, but 7 is leaps forward.

Meh, my desktop is staying on Vista, which is a very good OS, and very stable and fast OS, and has also been much less trouble than XP(which was very unstable on my system). I absolutely love Vista for all the features and customizations we can do.

I did a clean install of win 7 Pro on my laptop though, which I was having some trouble with, but had Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit on it. It is much easier to connect a projector or just another screen and have what you want with it, either expand, duplicate etc than it was on Vista where I had to go to the catalyst center and all that stuff (never am I going with Ati again because of that experience with them).

Windows 7 Was a step forward even if Vista was already a step forward, It runs much faster too than the Vista and beta/release candidate of win7 did.

I've read some of you saying ME wasn't good, but I've used it 7 years and never had problems with it. I've actually had more problems with XP than ME, pretty weird. I've been using Windows since 3.1 :P.
