Windows 7 RC: Reliable?

So the RC has been out for a while now, people have had the chance to mess around with it. However I've notice a lot more posts with people having stability problems, etc. So I wanted to get a poll of people's view on how reliable/better the RC is than older builds (specifically 7068 and 7077).





Mods: if you could fix the Poll question by deleting the "(7" part and just adding a question mark to the end, that would be awesome. Sorry I should have previewed first.

unlike some (maybe even most) people

RC has been great overall.
too bad the new feature "Guest Mode" was dropped. MS made me fall in love with it and then they took it away. totally heart-breaking.

I've had less initial issues overall out of the box with 7100 than any of the other builds.

Same as mate. I only ever had problems with 7022. With the rest I have seen positive progress. 7100 for the past 2 weeks as been as any os I have tried and I been working with computers since the old bbc days. 7100 is by far the best os there is bar non. Imagine then what the official release will be like. I cant even imagine service packs being needed(except for security).
