    I'm looking at a new box, but it has Windows 7 on it.

    Anyone running Windows7? Home or Pro? Any words of wisdom?

    The reviews seem pretty good. However i always get a little nervous about any new operating system for the first six months after release.

    Someone on UO Hall posted that UO works well on Windows 7. You might check out their post ;)

    You gotta link on that? I always get lost in the Uhall....

    I've heard (from an admin's point of view) that the home edition sux, and should upgrade to the pro version asap. Something about the Windows Live stuff in the home edition being made "for the people who know nothing about computers" (do people like that still exist?!?). If I wanna tweak my os (dedicated threading, memory allocations, etc.) The home edition would give me grief.
