A bit off topic:
My son loaded Windows 7 and was surprised: It seems to be sleeker than Vista, runs like hell. Some features seems well thought out. Son is totally happy so far. Let's wait for post beta times...

WE are in the market for a new laptop....sorry if this is off topic.

Should we wait for the new Windows 7 or go with the Vista?  Could we download and install the beta version of Windows 7 over the Vista?

Mark, I would recommend buying now and upgrade to Windows 7 when it's released.  MS has been notorious (as has most of the industry) in slipping their productions dates so waiting could turn into a long time.

I have been using Vista for 3 years since it was in beta and I love it. What amazes me about Vista is that the people who are bad mouthing it are not the people who are actually using. Better to believe a good rumor than to find out for yourself.

I've been using 7 for a week or so now, and I think I like it.  I've run into a few issues with virtual drives, but overall, it's stable, fast, and I like the new taskbar (a little macesque, but pretty swift anyway ;-) ).

Also, I'm not a FT and don't use my data card regularly, but I ran across an article here:

that looked promising for those of you with multiple pc's in your rig.

This time I have to agree with the bird man.  I have had Vista and I have had no issues whatsoever.  I will likely try 7 at some point, but one of the fun things in the computer world is to bash MS.  For whatever reason.  SUre they have had issues in the past, but their good outweighs their bad.  I don't have to reboot to make things work, it just works.
