Finally brought myself out of my XP era. I've been using it for about a month now, and I have absolutely no complaints. My computer boots/runs faster, runs games smoother and networking is a breeze. Microsoft finally gets 2 thumbs up from me!

What I've heard is xp to 7 is a must while vista to 7 isn't necessary if your content with vista. Of course that's only what I've heard. I have not tried 7 yet but I do plan on buying it once I'm in college next year.

I will most likely be upgrading from XP to Windows 7 in a few months.
But I'll wait because I don't really know if the improvement is that big.
Though DirectX 11 looks great.

I might pick a copy in the near future for my XP computer or just take the lazy way with getting a new computer already with Windows 7.
