Although Microsoft is saying that everybody should use Vista, I would say wait. Windows 7 is gonna be close enough to look like Vista without all the performance issues. To my knowledge you would only be waiting around a year.

I was actually planning to install Vista Business on my Macbook. They completely killed any potential customers by announcing Windows 7.

They've ironed out the problems in Vista. It's getting better. Trust me, I used to hate it. I'm getting Windows 7 when it comes out. I'll build a new PC for it.

If you have money, you can get both. I don't think 7 will be perfect when it comes out. They will time just like they do with every other OS. I'll be waiting for service pack 1 on that as well.

The deadline for the release of windows 7 will get pushed back as always IMO.

I still need to get Vista. I'm just waiting for someone to tell me which one of the RAM's I chose is better. I just ordered a new case, power supply, and card. Why not upgrade the OS, as well?
