    Is anyone here running Windows 7 on their computer? I know it has only been released in beta version, but would like to hear what others thought of it and how stable they found it to be?

    I tried it out last week after reading so many positives online about how stable and how much better than Vista the latest beta version was. Within two days of running it, I had to go back to Vista. Windows 7 kept freezing whenever I did heavy multitasking, which I always do on Vista without any such issue. I'm also positive this wasn't caused by low memory... I have sufficient memory that meets the requirement of both OS (2GB.

    So now I'm back running Vista Service Pack 2 (beta service pack. I have to say, Vista with service pack 2 is the most stable version of Windows I've used so far.

    But I still would like to hear the views of those who have tried Windows 7 beta but have found it to be great.

    I comparison to Vista it's a dream. I loaded it on several machines for testing, and now keep it on my netbook (as I get about 15% more battery life than XP or Vista).

    It's solid, and I haven't see a blue screen yet. :)

    I think its great.
    I have it both on my main computer and netbook and it works like a charm compared too its last generation vista.
    I also do multi-tasking even programs like adobe photoshop and have never been frozen yet.
    I would recommend it to all.

    I'm was running beta 7048. maybe you guys who have found it ok so far can tell me which beta version you find to be the most stable?

    I must say, Windows 7 is like a beautiful girl... take one look at her and you become so memorized that you would like to be with her at any cost. That is why I'm desperate to find a stable version. I love you way it looks. :D

    @ Arthas, got mine from a Torrent site.
