I also use IE8 with W7 RC but the version for sale in Europe doesn't come with IE8 and the present (XP, VISTA) IE8 won't work with W7

Did it come with the Beta or Rc version of W7. If it did it is apparently only a beta version (Microsoft), the final W7 version is still not ready for download at the moment.

just rechecked the Microsoft IE 8 site and Windows 7 is still not listed as a supported Operating System.

'Windows 7 is still not listed as a supported Operating System.'
