Windows 7 seems to be coming along nicely if recent Forum posts are an indicator . Only a few issues raised over the past fortnight
As far as I can see, having used it since May on a number of PCs, it seems the answer to our prayers after Vista, ie stable, intuitive to use and much cheaper to buy ,especially if preordered.
