(Solved) - Any opinion to go for Windows Seven now or wait.(14 posts)

Thanks Prosthetichead & LH,
It looks like the answer is to wait, and although I say I am using XP the Windows Transformation Kit does change it to a form of Vista with the Seven additions. I do like the layout and extra functions.
It does create some small problems mainly with something called Winflip on starting. I just thought going the whole hog would get rid of the minor irritations.
the beta for windows 7 has been out for sometime now, running stable and well.
I don't think there is much reason to wait, microsoft is improving a lot from vista.
i personally do not like vista and cannot wait till windows 7 comes out, i would have installed xp on my laptop but my drivers arent supported, i was too lazy to find the time to go hunt for all of them.
In short, i say there is no need to wait, i think Windows 7 has been tested enough and if your ready to upgrade then go ahead and do so.
well, i am really anxious for win 7 and i already preordered it. those people that sometimes say they should wait in case there are problems might consider that windows 7 pro and above come with xp mode, basically allowing you to run any program like it was xp without a product key :P
btw, i only have sp1, but i really want to try it..
I hoped when I asked the question that the consensus would be in favour of going for it as reviews seem to all point that way but guess as always it comes down to individual preferences.
I suppose as this is my first experience of Vista via the transformation kit and not experiencing any of the problems I have read about with this OS I thought Seven would be even better.
Appreciate all the comments received.
