     I have been beta testing Win 7 RC1 for a couple of months now on three different machines, x64 flavor and I can't say enough good things about it. Though, Vista x62 in which I have had no problem with to really report as far as stability goes. I know for most people, why upgrade?

     Personally, I will get Win 7's final release next month. But for the masses, sure get more bang for the buck and get a new machine when the time comes, makes reasonable sense. If you're personally happy with Vista, stick with it until then. Besides, there's no rush.
