Question VISTA 64 to win7 64 - issues???

am currently running winVISTA 64 ULTIMATE and would like to upgrade to win7 ULTIMATE RTM but i have a few ??????

- is the RTM version the same as the version that will be released to the public in october?
- has anyone else done this? any issues?
- i understand that its an 'upgrade' and not a fresh install but will everything i run now really run on win7 without new drivers or will win7 automatically get the new drivers?
- any comments on compatibility with PROGRAMS, GAMES, DRIVERS or APPS???
- if i go through with this will i then need to install the public release in october to get the full benefits or will it just be a bunch of win updates?


thanks in advance!!

Default Re: VISTA 64 to win7 64 - issues???

First of all, I would recommend installing the release version a week or so AFTER the General Availability date. This is to allow time for M$ to find the problems they didn't have time to fix before RTM (Hot Fixes).
I would also not upgrade to the RTM, as M$ can probably get you for not installing the GA version.
