Default Anyone running Windows 7?

I can get a full retail copy of Windows 7 right now through my university. I currently have Vista x86 and I would like to get Windows 7 x64 so I can throw 4 more gigs of ram in the system in my sig. I'm just wondering how people like it and what are the pros and cons.

I've been running it since the beta, and love it. Very stable, too, and a little faster than vista

Much, Much better than Vista! It's almost like a rebuild of XP.

Get it! I love it. One of my favorite OS's. Seems to be fairly stable, and so far the only software issue I've had was Starcraft (still works, but some of the textures are screwy). Also the only drivers I installed were video drivers, which I didn't even really need to.

I never had issues with Vista X64 since day one, but Windows 7 is great! Been using it since the RC was released and it has been a WONDERFUL OS! Not one issue at all! Plus, Win7 looks awesome, and there are very nice things you can do with it.

Sick, I'm home for the weekend to help my bro move into college. As soon as I get back to my house in RI I'll download it. I'm more excited to get 4 more gigs of RAM lol.
