Thanks Groovicus, I was really upset buying Ultimate right before the announced 7, I felt cheated. My 32 bit rig is running great, audio sonic is much better than XP. I may try 64 bit next year.
If you have Vista, there is no real compelling reason to upgrade just yet. Windows 7 is not all that different, and patches to Vista have sufficiently fixed the problems that people complained about during the initial release.

I concur. I say if what you're working with is working great, why go up to 7. If it ain't broke don't fix it, right? However, I am so pleasantly surprised by how outstanding Windows 7 has been so far (using Windows 7 Pro for over a month now, in a 500+ PC networked environment) that I urge anyone who can upgrade to go for it. Obviously it is ESSENTIAL to run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to make sure your PC won't have any performance, compatibility or driver related issues. (I'm still without audio.

The reason is you'd be actually missing out on fantastic features that'd increase your productivity. The snap feature to compare windows, the jump lists, and simply, it's just downright pleasing on the eye.
While I do agree they improved Vista significantly, I would have to disagree with not having a reason to upgrade to Windows 7. They got it right this time, thats for sure.

Another reason to wait to upgrade (or install next to your current OS as dual boot instead):
Windows 7 endless reboot answer evades Microsoft
This is apparently a huge problem for people upgrading from Vista. I have not had one problem doing new installs (of the RC) on multiple computers in my household. Sounds like the upgrade path is causing nightmares for some people and needs to have some kinks worked out. Best to wait till they figure out what this is!
Llyn Speaking of the upgrade path, I have a client who didn't register XP, now they bought an Upgrade disk Vista Basic. I can't do a clean install on another hdd with this disk fresh can I?
