I hope the word on 7 continues to indicate a solid OS. I am desperately needing to replace my primary machine and am looking to go very high end on a new custom box. Vista pushed me back and have been making do (very unhappily), and replacement is near critical. If I can nurse it along until 4th quarter and 7 is getting high marks I may wind up with a good Christmas season buying opportunity; especially with the power user budget. Simply running too many powerful programs at one time and the machine isn't worth upgrading. It cost a truckload of money at the time, as will the next, but if 7 is solid somebody is going to get a huge order. If 7 sucks I don't know what I will do.
