Tonight I installed Windows 7 for the first time after seeing it in the Community Technical Preview release a few months ago. I'm quite impressed by what Microsoft has released. Brings back a lot of the same feelings when the upgrade from Windows 2000 to Windows XP happened. Plenty of good things included with the software, installed without a hitch, drivers worked out of the box and the machine was overall snappy in regards to performance.
Looks like Microsoft has a winner again after the failure of Windows Vista.
