Been using ti for about 6 months now on various computers - it is FAR FAR better than Vista - almost as good as XP!!! Seriously if only they were go to carry on supporting XP it would be no contest but as they aren't then with newer hardware you will have to change.

Explorer is a nightmare - incredibly slow to read any folder as it is constantly looking for the DRM on each file but just found a way around that.

How well it will work on large corporate networks will remain to be seen though............

I bought it through work/school. It is a lot better and only cost me 30.

If you have kids at school then you are entitled to the student version of Win 7 and Office.

I have heard very good reports on 7. I skipped Vista as I did not hear much to make me want to upgrade to it, however a lot of the companies and banks I deal with are talking about upgrading to 7 so it must be good !
