I run W7 Ult x86 (RC) on a Tosh Tablet, connecting wirelessly to a data projector and a school network. It is SUPERB, never crashes, is far more intuitive any previous version and pretty much makes desktop icons a thing of the past since you can do it all from your taskbar. So far no issues with drivers etc at all.

Running Windows 7 Pro 64bit on a 2007 HP 6710b notebook. So far it's running much better than the supplied Vista Business ever did. And the Windows XP Mode is handy too. All up not perfect, but I like it! Have Ultimate also but not sure what I'm going to use it on yet.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I've been running W7 32bit (beta then RC now RTM) on my HTPC for months and it's been superb.

I've just installed W7 Ultimate 64bit on my desktop, and 32bt on my Asus EeePC and both run really well.

I've been running W7 Ultimate 64 since it went onto MSDN. No major problems, although I don't use it for much (dual boot with OS X). I have PowerDVD 7 up and running for Blu-ray and it handles all the movies I've thrown at it.

So far working great on my 2 & 1/2 year old Acer laptop - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.
XP mode works great with Quickbooks, which wouldn't work correctly natively in Win7.

My old compaq PC made for vista home basic runs it perfect, (I use windows 7 ultimate atm). Only problem, I have had more virus's since using vista. My c drive keeps getting renamed to "DEATH", the clock resets to 1:30am on the 6th/06/2006 when ever I restart or turn off pc. It wakes from sleep mode alot during the night also. but It doesnt seem to be alot more stable than vista, havnt had BSOD once since upgrading (I got it every single time my pc woke up from sleep with vista). Anyways, I love it and am happy with it. :D

Running W7 Ultimate x64 at home, runs circles around Vista and looks great too.

We run W7 Pro x64 on all our work machines now, I thought Vista Business x64 ran quite well on those but the performance difference was amazing on what are really just mid range machines. Very noticeable when when running a lot of heavy programs at once. I'm usually running Expression Web 3, Photoshop CS4, Flash CS4, multiple browser windows and Office 07 apps and it never misses a step.

I personally enjoy Windows 7 right back from the Beta > RC > RTM and I'm fortunate to have a business signed up to Microsoft BizSpark Program. I can run all versions of Windows 7 and Server 2008 for a final cost of us$100 after 3 years in the program.

Yea, loving 7 x64 on Mac Bootcamp, wakes up from sleep instantly which is great compared to the 20 second wake up from Vista - should save a a bit of time over the next few years haha.

Although I can't get firewire to work full speed on my WD MyBook External HD which is my only W7 problem :S

Even infected windows 7 runs sweet :P - but seriously dude, you should look at that sooner rather than later, no idea what information your comprimised system is giving away.....

Running Windows 7 Enterprise at work on my 3 year old HP laptop, perfect work tool.  Running Windows 7 Ultimate at home, very nice OS, doesnt have that strange, not-sure-if-I-like-it feeling that vista had.  (kinda like how ME felt)
