Not really bothered as Vista for me is well, useless.

Will be looking forward to Windows 7 final release and 7lite.

Want to see some testing done gaming-wize.

To this point, although the OS is meant to be all that Vista wanted to be, the Vista gaming performance on the current platform has been champion.

With 11 on both, it would be nice to see the comparisons again.

No matter how good 7 may be, if u don't use it for everyday stuff and only launching games, if it still proceeds to lag behind Vista - Vista's stable enough for me and I won't be buying 7.

Other pcs that do everything everyday, that's another question, but people also dual boot "a" windows with ubuntu etc..

No, spell check doesn't work on titles / subtitles.

The issue the other day was down to Jim updating the spell checker and me not clearing my cache. Anyway back on topic.

You've raised an interesting point there rasta, It would be interesting to see the difference, if any.

I also decided not to move to Win7 as it is similar to Windows Vista.

Windows 7 doesn't really bring me anything new in terms of innovation and the increase in loading times and such aren't going to change my mind.

Thing to keep an eye on also is if it effects Dx9 ofc.

Many game devs haven't heard of Dx10 yet.
