[citation][nom]68vistacruiser[/nom]I've done beta's since win95 on floppys, and I've never pulled one as fast as I pulled win7. I have a new build with an I7, and I had nothing but problems trying to run older but still solid programs like Nero 6. I understand a lot of software companies will hype up win7 because that will force people to update their programs. I also understand that some of those companies may have people post on sites like this to counter the people like me who have problems. But in the end, if I have to spend a thousand dollars to update the rest of my software for a $150(?) operating system, you can bet it will be a long time before it happens. BTW, I've got 6 gig on Vista64 on that I7, and I've never been happier. Rock solid! I couldn't care less how much memory it uses. It works and hasn't crashed yet.[/citation]
i fear that too, as a software developer ive spent a lot of time over the years retrofitting software so that it would run on new versions of windows. i mean like windows 2.x, 3.x, 9x, nt, 2k, xp, 2k3, vista, 2k5, 2k8, w7... it never ends each of the sdk are like different. i've also had to support all flavors of windows ce, windows mobile, embedded nt, xp, 2k, ect, it's like nuts. i have dlls from hell.
