I'm not sure what is to be gained by having VISTA SP2 -- you might as well go the whole piggy (hog ?) hog and upgrade to W7 straight away.

You'll have to do something to th Vista SP2 system anyway before that date.

I would have 7 installed on main machine if 7057 installed, but it won't (well i wasn't prepared to wait any longer than i did for the screen to come up and it has bever taken that long before on preious builds).. 6801>7048 have worked fine.

After trying a fresh install i tried an upfrade abd was keft with it half installed and hangng on the three valls again so had no choice but to install something else, my vista disc was closest lol..

I will just dual boot when the next build is leaked/released.

Yes the rc sp2 expires but can simply be uninstalled and replaced with the final when its released.

Strangely my install of 7057 has been fast and none of the problems mentioned above. The only 'bug' i had was the desktop.ini file.

It seems to be fast and smooth. And AFAIC it is ready....

iv had problems with the setup looking like its not doing anything with builds 7000 7022 7048 7057 all X86.

i guess its not really a problem sense it installs fine more of a annoyance then anything

i'm running on two desktops, two laptops and my primary concern has been the networking capabilities on small networks.

all told, on the desktop units there seems very little differences now between successive builds. the laptops are another matter.

the latest build seems a little more ram dependant, certainly i think that mouse or pad responsiveness has lost a bit of it's zip, not a deal killer but definately slower than earlier builds.

the networking out of the box while it works, is not without issue. i've had some units seeming to find other units effortlessly, but refusing to see a particular unit at all, then after network wide reboots being able to see that unit but not another. given enough time, the issue seems to resolve either by an hour idle or a network name and password change only to see the same issue appear after a day or two.

one thing i have notices is that the op system install sizes are creeping up so when i loaded the new build, i wondered if this were not now in the hands of the appearance and configuration guys....padding the best op sys in a decade with looping junk, i hope that turns out not to be the case.

system reliability is excellent, even on the laps outside of the networking issues, out of the box, bluetooth partnerships, printers both fixed and networking, and general reliability are excellent, even offline help is functional for the most part and more effective as a resource than in the past.

ready to go to market, i would say not yet, but it is close and surpasses vista in it's current state in almost all respects. wheither you would want to dump xp professional in favour of seven or not i'm not so sure of but reality is, it is well past time to move on. a compelling move, i would say not.

echrada,

I agree with you, no problems at all. I just fixed the ini file.

Still can't drag and drop a file on MS Word icon pinned to the taskbar and have it open the file in word, shift key or no shift key. So still using the quick launch bar. I did an upgrade which seemed to go without a hitch. Took about 1 hour. Other than that seems to go good. Haven't found any way to send feedback. Although I'm glad it's not in every window, woulda been nice to have the link on the desktop.
