does anybody know how well this works with vmware fusion?

@terbor: I've used it with the latest version of fusion on snow leopard and it works, but without the aero interface.

Either way, this is an absolutely great OS.

Huh? I have Windows 7 running in VMware Fusion 3 right here and Aero is running. Performance is pretty good, but it doesn't feel 100% solid.

Windows 7, 64 bit came installed on the new laptop I bought 2 weeks ago, and I have to say I love it!

Was going to reformat and install XP until I got to using 7, am quite pleased!

With all I've read about Microsoft declaring war on OEM software "abuse" I would look long and hard into the affair before even considering this deal !

This is the best OS around. I am running it on my laptop and everything just works. super Stable and works with all of my apps.

What about Microsoft customer abuse, how about any version of Windows but specifically Vista! I think they should charge a whole lot less for those of us that may upgrade from Vista.

Happy camper here with Windows 7 ultimate x64. And if you miss XP (or need it), you can always get it running on Windows 7 Pro and Ultimate for free

@voxtred,@terbor Fusion 3.x supports Aero (WDDM). Runs Windows 7 great on Snow Leopard host, in either 32-bit or 64-bit kernel mode. Unity mode a little flaky.

This comes with a stick on COA License ...

So remember to stick it on!

@rwkmann - I agree. I spent over $300.00 for Vista Ultimate for those special features that were in development during release. I'm still waiting. Please don't tell me I spent extra money for Texas Hold em'

@metldude: you did my friend.
I am running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate RC and I absolutely love it. I would definitely recommend getting it if you have the money and want a nice easy to use interface.
