I've just downloaded and installed the RTM version of Windows 7 (64 bit). I haven't noticed many differences from then RC version, although it does seem a little quicker.

It found and configured all of my devices fine, except for the Creative X-Fi card. But that was just a quick download from the Creative site.

Although I was happy with Vista (ultimate), I much prefer Windows 7.

I'm still playing with RC, not quite sure if I like the jump lists. I wish it would automatically collapse when I move my mouse away.. other than that, I'm digging what I see so far, and I'm running it on a virtual box, so I can always dump it when needed

I installed it last week on my laptop. I was running vista Ultimate (32 bit), which was running dog slow. But I have done a clean install with Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit), which has seemed to smooth out alot of the issues I was running into. Aka Outlook hanging up for minutes on end, then working again. Only thing I can not stand is the new defrag monitor, talking about a step backward in amount of information displayed.
