I also agree with the last two posts... the current release does appear to be very stable indeed, and is what Vista should have been when it was first launched!

So you are all telling me Windows 7 is completely 100% bug free and all of the security issues of the previous 6 versions have all been 100% dealt with ?

I don't think you can say that about ANY operating system, but the general consensus of opinion is that is an improvement over its predecessors!

It seems to be a heck of a lot more bug-free than Snow Leopard right now...

All I am suggesting is, successful beta test or not, when Windows 7 hits 10 million machines, all sorts of unforeseen problems are going to rear their ugly heads. The only good reason to switch is if you are buying a new computer and it comes preinstalled, otherwise, let Microsoft fix the worst problems and then switch, honestly, there is no hurry. I also give the same advice for OSX.

Since Win7 had an open, free beta, it has been very widely installed and tested. I would not hesitate to switch from Vista. From XP is a toss-up, depending on how much effort you want to go through and possibly buy new software.

I love bizarre conclusions like this which reveal the poster has lost the argument. From it's a stable operating system and there's no need to wait for SP1 to this post. Amazing.

To engage in a similar flight of fancy...Yes, Windows 7 is 100% bug free and has 0 security holes.

It's a non-argument anyway. If everyone waited until a service pack release, there'd be no OS in the first place.

Heck, I enjoy being an early adopter of 7. Like many, I was very excited for it to be released. Is it without issues? No, but then again there isn't any OS that is.

All OS'es are buggy...take a look at the issues still being found in a "mature" OS such as Windows XP.

A long time ago an IBM executive asked the mainframe operating systems team, "When will all the bugs be fixed?" Millions of lines of code and he's asking when all the problems will be fixed. Clearly he was a moron.

Wow, I mean just wow. I have never been flamed for suggesting someone wait for SP1 before. It use to be considered "Common Sense" to wait a little while and see what kind of problems crop up. Apparently today, when one person jumps off a cliff, everyone is expected to follow.
