^ No, neither is better.
RTM = Release to Manufacturing
RTW = Release to Web

Whichever you get your hands on first is fine. They're identical, the only difference is the way you get it.

Not bad going, MS finally got it right, i.e. they marketed a product which is basically a moderate update of Vista but got it completely hyped to the skies. And that's every vendors dream, selling a hype.

In actual fact they just repackaged Vista and are going to (re)sell it for major bucks. Smart business acumen.

A scam also, but what hype isn't?
Under very close examination here since the beta releases I can easily dispute that one fast! 7 won't simply be any Vista Part #2 but see an entirely new core element to start with generally referred to as the MinWin kernel. Some good information is seen on the links posted on the thread that goes through that quite a bit. The truth about MinWin: the heart of Windows 7

Having both RCs on at the same time as Vista here each on separate drives as stand alone installation I have a good first hand look at how things compare especially with SP2 out. 7 still comes out on top in a variety of ways while Vista is still a good stable version seen there.

One link on the threads pretty well sums up how MS reached the same conclusion about Windows simply getting too large and the need to start over from the core elements first.

Sure. Been running side by side since day one, can't say there's a whole lot of difference except slightly lighter load on idle in 7 and some GUI additions which anyone with some skill had already adapted himself using 3rd party additions. And libraries i need like a hole in the head.

Micro, Nano, Pico kernel or not, it's result that counts.

But hey if you want to pay $$$$ for a marketing trick MS won't stop you (and me neither)

I've been in touch with a few people lately that never ran XP simply bypassing that from 2000 right into Vista now trying out the RC that would say otherwise. One was even hesitant at first not wanting to lose the time needed for seeing the 64bit RC go on replacing the 64bit Vista Ultimate until getting that on and running it a few days after getting all softwares on.

Where the differences will be noticed the most however will still be on older systems like a few running 7 with only 512mb of memory and an old single core cpu. Here besides a few minor annoyances 7 with a few small bugs it comes out in front of the pack.

YMMV. However placing a new OS as being the salvation of outdated computers is somewhat bizarre.
The only place outdated computers still have a future is in 3rd world countries and i'm pretty sure they are not going to pay $300 to run a computer they got for free.

As per my system spec i have a medium range box, and as i said often before it's not constructed to run benchmarks well but to run apps that i need in everyday life.

And if a microkernel might shave off 1 picosecond on a cycle thats very interesting for technogeeks and looks great in benchmark graphs but not adding any real value then i don't see the point paying vast sums for it.

Windows 7 should have been Vista SP2, and i'm actually quite sure it was meant to be by the developers but the marketingdepartment saw a great opportunity and took it.

And i must admit they played it very very well. First time i'm impressed by them actually.
