    I would think about because it is overpriced and I wonder whether it's worth it or live with XP for one more generation.

    Easily the best OS i have ever come across.. Have tried almost all of Windows flavours and only XP SP3 comes anywhere near stable as this one.. never had any trouble during the entire Beta period...... Defenitly will buy this..

    The only thing that I didn't like here is MS leaving Vista Ultimate users out in cold.

    First, they didn't provide any useful ultimate extras. And now, Ultimate users cannot get any rebate to migrate to Windows 7 Ultiamte and to downgrade to win7 profession or home premium, they need to do full reinstall.

    I'll wait till Indian prices come out. Then wait for them to touch all time Retail low of Windows Vista @ 3.5K. Once this mark is reached, I'll consider buying it after seeing if I really need windows for the professional apps and games which don't work on WINE and only on windows and evaluating my financial situation.

    even if you try win7 beta or RC, you will doubt whether it's beta or final release. yes, win7 is not yet finalize and hence the question whether we are ready to buy or not and for people like me, to make a purchase of 7k-8k, have to plan ahead.

    Too early to jump to that conclusion. I'm not getting a PC upgrade anyway until next year. And when I do its most likely going to be a laptop (obviously I'm waiting for Intel arrandale and AMD Fusion for laptops). If I get windows 7 home basic for cheap, say a price of 1.5k over the version with windows (that's the price difference when it comes to OEMs usually) there is a 90% chance that I'll buy it.

    Windows 7 is probably going to be Microsoft's best OS ever. I just wonder about the other software and the security. Windows OS can never avoid viruses becuz of the pop.

    don't worry about viruses. Vista has been the most secure windows and win7 is going to take that to next level. :)
