    Hey Everyone,
    I was just wondering. I got my Macbook this past March, and I love it, I had been using XP for years. However, I have been using the Windows 7 RC and I love it. Been using it a little too much, been feeling a little guilty about being a Mac user, using Windows so much :p Was wondering if anyone else here has been enjoying Windows 7 this much that they have been lessening their use of Mac OS X, or maybe its just because I am new to the Mac and the familliar is appealing as well as finally a good working version of Windows.

    So, is anyone else really enjoying Windows 7?

    Replies would be great,
    Thanks.

    I've just installed Windows 7 RC on a triple boot Dell Mini 9, and it's not too shabby at the moment.

    The interface is very modern compared to XP although I'll reserve judgement againt OS X until Snow Leopard comes out. Not having used Vista, it's like a shiny new toy that you play with but whether Win 7 has that lasting appeal, I'll have to wait and see.

    I tried the win7 beta and will I thought it was a vast improvement over vista, I'm still not "in love" with it. In fact I found that Ubuntu is a superior OS over windows. Smaller footprint, better memory management more stable, no activation needed, etc.

    Well its definitely a lot better than XP. XP looks pre-historic compared to it.

    I have been running win7 on my dell XPS for months now. My vista machines are pretty well tweaked and run nicely. the win7 stock utilizes resource far better than the tweaked vista machines.
