Windows 7: Why are you testing Win 7?

Window's 7 Ultimate 64bit
 
 

I was a beta tester for MS with Vista and am doing the same with Windows 7 to get another free copy of 7 or perhaps Vista. Plus it helps to get the bugs out of this operating system before it is released to the general public.

For me I tried Vista and if I uninstalled a program and wanted to reinstall it, it seemed to always end in failure. File access errors. I know of at least two major programs that I just could not uninstall completely and had to download the microsoft uninstall tool to remove them. With Windows 7, I can uninstall and reinstall at will, kind of like XP used to be. So I'm looking to get RC 1 and try the 64 bit version.

Im not testing it... Im using it as my main OS!
The only problem I have had is with the mic (which I think its because of the damn crappy creative drivers), 64bit wlan encryption, and 2 user logged in at the same time.

Everything else works perfect
My games and apps run better than ever.

Im still on the 7000 build

Curiosity mostly but the gift of Office Ultimate in the Feedback panel program is also an incentive.

Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64
 
 

A while back MS offered a fixed number of people a free dvd of either vista ultimate or office 2007 for allowing them to collect extra info from their comps for a certain period of time. You had to send an email and then they got back to you if selected. There's an old thread around about it, but I can't find it at the moment.

Same here, I want a head start on the new OS, and I have been using it since Oct of 08, and will continue to use it until Windows 8.
