It seems great to me so far 7 or near it for all options other than the new taskbar. It needs work. ;)

(No, I'm not arguing about the taskbar here, there's already threads about it. :D))

You know what? it's a bloody great OS, and quick, I am very suprised. I liked Vista after SP1, but it still has to many quirks like (Folder Views , Vista never can remember your Folder View settings.) I've used Windows from Ver 3.1, and Win 7 must be one of the nicest and quickest to use, not to mention....stable thus far. I sell Win and Mac based platforms, and I must say.....Windows 7 is the "Beta1" performance king....

I love 7. I've had zero issues with it and it runs very fast. And I LOVE the Superbar. I can't see a single thing wrong, and it performs even better on my laptop than Vista does on my desktop. (Y) (Y) (Y)

The looks
4: The whole Aero thing is played out now to me, kinda tired of it already. Plus I'm not a huge fan of the new taskbar.

Overall
3: Meh, I didn't really like it too much, I don't see what the big deal is.

Honestly, first and foremost, I'm surprised at the stability. I guess I shouldn't be since this really is the Vista platform, but its impressive none the less.

The UI is what it is and to me it feels no different than xp other the some cosmetics and speed. I'd actually like to hide the superbar background and have the buttons only showing, but can't have everything can we. yes I'm a screen minimalist. :p

Only issues I've seen are third party applications but that's them and not Microsoft. So I figure in time those companies will port to 7 and all will be good.

I'm running the 64 bit version and it is smooth and functioning nicely.

So with that:
6 for looks
6 for compatibilities
7 for overall functionality (impressive as beta)

I noticed my x64 Windows 7 uses large amounts of RAM. For example, now I have running IE with a few tabs, comunicator, email, and a few gadgets, wmp... and it uses from 1.5 - 1.7 GB of RAM.
