Build 6801 didn't have to many bugs either. I've tested 7022, in fact its on another partition but I boot up every time into 7000 because the issues I have with that are no worse than 95 - 98 - 2000 - me - xp - vista. As a matter of fact I'd go as far as sayin its better than all of them, especially when they were at this stage of development. I would never go back to any of those builds, EVER!

@Night Hawk to be honest with you I think it's a waste of time and money to be investing in vistas' sp2, I think all their efforts and coin should be employed elsewhere.

You forget that there will be a lot of people that do not have they money nor the inclination to go for a new o/s. They should get the SP2 package.

Just because we all want it and want it now doesn't mean that everybody is of the same mind.

second that. Just installed sp2 final and see no reason to install win7 as main os.
One day i'll buy another box and win7 will be included. Till then i'm not going to spend $$$$ just fro some extra eyecandy and a few minor changes.

SP2 Final? Isn't Vista SP2 still in beta form?

Well technically that's not final, just Release Candidate, it could change before final. On that note, how is it? Do you notice a difference in speed?

ok, technically it might change, but not really in areas that matter.

Well speed. I don't do benchmarks which to me reflect only the way how well your box does a benchmark.

I did notice a very significant change in processor load on idle however.

Whereas Vista SP1 ran quite hot on idle with an average load of 15% (all kinds of utilities installed, Deskscapes running HD dream) running Win7 in dualboot showed an average idle load of 3% with most utilities also running (without Deskscapes, doesn't install) and 5% running standard dreamscenes. The core temp differed by 5 C.

After the first few batches of sp2 idle load actually increased. The latest RC build however gives me about the same result as win7.

What that does for speed i cant tell, (you'd need a microtimer to measure) but it sure shows that sp2 contains win7 optimizations.

I'm not a speedjockey, and fail to notice a realistic everyday usage difference in speed/snappiness between the 2.

If anything the added layer in the W7 gui slows me down. Cant really appreciate f.e. the Libraries, just another layer of mud to wade through.

By the same analogy you could also say that SP3 for XP should have never been released. Yet that contains some 1,000+ fixes for the older version there with plenty of people still staying with that version having refused to upgrade or backed away from Vista.

2000 saw SP4 for the even older version seen there before support was dropped. NT 4.0 saw an SP6. What you are suggesting there is that MS should instantly drop support for their presently latest version before 7 is even out by the sound of that.

Sorry I still have XP and Vista on here even with both 7 betas installed. Once someone finally comes out with something that will actually capture video in Vista and 7 then I'll be parting ways with XP entirely especially for the next build to come.
