I'm about to venture in to the unknown...anyone else tried it yet?

I'll report back once I get it all installed and configured.

Here goes nothing...

I installed the 64bit version of the release candidate this week, I'd been using the 32 bit version of an earlier build for a while prior to that.

Seems pretty nice, I've been using it to play WoW and Quakelive and so far its been stable.

Like in Vista, you'll want to disable the very annoying 'user account controls' that prompt you constantly.

I wish i could get windows to remember the gamma setting for my primary monitor, seems to drop it after every reboot but this is something that vexes me on XP too.

I have it all installed, still working on the configuration part. I never made the jump to Vista, so I'm very unfamilliar with the UI. I have to dig around to find what I'm used to finding easily in XP. I'm going to give it a long hard look, and if all goes well, I'll keep it until the RC runs out and then make the purchase. Looks pretty good so far though...lets see if LoTRO runs first though!

Yah man, it's working. I have to run it in "administrator mode" though, which is frustrating me. I obviously have some tweaking to do in Windows 7 to get rid of some of these annoyances, but otherwise, it's running well, and yes, most importantly, LoTRO runs :)

yes I have tried the BETA and just installed RC before I left town.

It is awesome IMO.
