I'm enjoying the W7 beta, but I can't see switching back to Windows from Leopard or the Mac platform. Apple needs to copy that Snap feature though. That is really handy for going side-by-side or maximizing an open window.

I'm sure Snow Leopard will be amazing, and Apple will continue to gain market share. I would never switch back to Windows 100%, or at least not PC's (the Vaio P might be the exception, but that's not a real computer, it's a "LifeBook" ) Very Happy
...I would run Windows 7 on a Mac though

An Asus 1000h netbook shall be my W7 machine. That Vaio P is dead sexy though. Cool

I've downloaded the beta but haven't installed it yet. From what others are saying on different forums, it seems much nicer than Visa.

Yeah, I hate Visa too. You should see bill from the holidays.

Just kidding!!! I'm the king of typos. Smile

I think you'll like Windows 7. It's just as stable as Vista with a much better UI.
