As part of today’s news, Microsoft Corp. announced that the company is anticipating that the next version of its client operating system, Windows 7, will be available to customers in time for the holiday shopping season. In addition, Windows Server 2008 R2 Release Candidate (RC) is available today with the final product releasing to market in the same timeframe as Windows 7.
Meh, I'd rather stick with XP/Windows Server 2003 for a couple more years anyway. At least at work. At home, I'd upgrade just for the DirectX compatibility.
As per the SDK, There's no hardware out yet that supports the new DirectX features. :\
It'll be two years before you see any games that use them, anyway.
Given that, I see no compelling reason to update it on my kids machine: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7#New_and_changed_features
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I'll run the RC till next march. At that point I guess I'll upgrade.
I have yet to install the RC, its been sitting on my desk burned to a dvd for the past week....lol
