I can get a license key for cheap through a school thingy, so for 20$ I am going to partition a new system folder on my 5 year old XP machine.

I'm in the same boat you are with the older HP desktop. Scared to try to do that though lol, I'll just get a new comp. Maybe someone can buy it for me for Christmas

Yeah, a decent PC is cheap as hell these days. They seem to be throwing 4 GB of RAM into everything, even the lower midrange computers.

I remember your workspace pic from a while back.......if you get a new PC promise me you'll get a 20'+ widescreen monitor. It's been the best computing/work/everything investment I've made in the last 5 years.

Tesco Direct (UK) are taking pre-orders for Windows 7 Home Premium (Full version) for £44.97 delivered if you use voucher code "TDX-SFFT".

There's a big thread on the Hotukdeals website about this if you need more info.

Haha well at work we got new Dells with duel core processors (holy crap I cant believe how much faster it is than my home comp) and huge widescreen monitors I cant tell you how much it makes me enjoy going to work now.

At home my desk is pretty small. I have a regular flat screen and it does seem chinsy compared to the work monitor but it still takes up a lot of space.

No way am I going to buy a Windows OS just after it's been released. I'd wait at least a year until they've worked out all the major flaws and released a service pack or two.

Well I crashed my laptop yesterday (my fault, but I jacked up the OS and video drivers) so I installed Windows 7. I got the newly released version from MSDN (I think it's the real deal, not the beta or RC). So far so good! I've installed everything I use except Microsoft Office 2007 Suite and Adobe programs I have at home. I had to use the x86 b/c my computer is 3 years old, processor wouldn't work with the x64.

Been running this for a while now on my desktop but I finally bit the bullet and installed it on my Acer Netbook. Runs like a charm for anyone concerned. Can't wait for the release.

The new Windows Movie Maker is two thumbs DOWN. I installed the old XP version.

i've had an official released and activated Windows 7 Professional now for about 3 weeks and can tell you so far so good. I upgraded from 2GB to 4GB and installed the 64-bit version as that is simply the best upgrade path

bye bye 32-bit OSs

the new Aero features are nice

I bought the Home Premium upgrade edition (going from Vista). The upgrade setup fails in the middle and tech support is useless. Might have to return it.

Everyone told me to do a clean install rather than upgrade (same with going from XP to Vista).

Good point - tech support had me do that on the next call. The upgrade thing is useless - have to reinstall everything now. Oh well - everything is a LOT faster now. I can't believe I put up with Vista for a year.
