Found 1st May 2009
I have some questions to those who have it or know about it, as it is going to be release to the general public on the 5th I think.

I am currently running Vista Business, is the 7 RC any good?
What version is it equivalent to? (home premium etc)
Can you just do n upgrade from Vista or would a complete reinstall be better?
Are there updates for it and when RC2 comes out can you just download an update?
What happens to the support etc when the full version comes out?
What happens next June when the RC licence runs out?

windows 7 is a inbetween win xp and vista, so dont both with it as you will be going backwards, just wait a while

1 yeah its not bad
2 its the ultimate edition
3 u can upgrade but a fresh install is most recommended

5 you will then have to buy it, though there is mention of a grace period of 12mths at mo

Cheers for that info + rep

Whats the compatibility like with programs and drivers at stuff?
Oh and most importantantly should i get the X64 or the x32 version. (i have an x64 procesor, but do the performance benefits outweigh problems that all x64 OS have had so far?)
