I don't care I hope this new OS perform better than Vista. I still use XP and I will be this way until something better apper. I don't care about directX 10, I'm more concerned about the woay it works and not the way it  looks.

64-bit only is good is time to make some revolution and not just an evolution. the 95% of the actual market is around the 64-bit ready processors but we need to take the extra juice of the processor and not only the 32-bit part. Is like Mr. Jekyll and Hide.

Please allow Custom Install. Please.

I would really really love it if Microsoft actually gave it's consumers the

option to do a custom install alongside the express install option.

What I mean by this is things like Windows Media Player, Live Messenger,

Windows Mail, Internet Explorer, SmartCard, etc. should be optional to

the consumer. Why must I have every single program and/or service and/or

process installed on my system by default? Sometimes turning it off isn't

enough. I realize you have the ability to uninstall the above items after

install. But why does the consumer have to uninstall it? If I fork out my hard

earned cash for a retail copy of your OS, why can't I say what things I want to

never be put on my hard drive? Please at least consider my plea. I really do

beg of you to seriously consider this install option.

Fanboys are annoying. Price/Performance is top priority. Patience=Awesome.

imo windows 7 should only be 64 bit

 Not enough x64 software is available. It'd be nice, however, it would alienate too many people and companies, unless a super awesome x86 emulator is included in the OS to seemlessly allow the execution of x86 code (also, drivers)

16 bit applications work fine on 32 bit OS, if MS announces 64 bit only now by the time 7 is released it'll be standard

I don't recall anybody making suggestions regarding supporting only 64-bit (x64) in Windows 7 at the e7 blog. I think there's some merit to the idea, especially if Redmond can solve the problem of x86 drivers and shell extensions working in x64. It's worth a comment on the e7 blog.

It's amazing how illogical a business built on binary logic can be.

THE REASON MICRO$OFT MAKES WINDOWS X86 IS BECAUSE OF US WHO CANT GO DOWN TO BESTBUY AND BUY 12 GB OF RAM AND ONLY HAVE 1 GB OF RAM!

Wow, really? Micro$oft? Is this 2001 or something?

you don't need 12GB of RAM to use 64bit Windows. Heck, it runs just fine on 1 or 2 GB of RAM. The majority of the world's software is still stuck in the 32bit realm, along with the majority of PC's.

If you have more than 4GB of RAM though then ya, you'll need 64bit Windows in order to use it.
