On my laptop, I had nothing by trouble with Win7 so I went back to Vista. On my desktop I haven't had too many issues, other than a few BSODs and the fact that it confuses the hell out of me, it's ok.

I was running vista 64, I installed SP2 and had nothing but trouble. Switched to 7 and haven't had an issue. It runs smoother with only 2gb ram and uses less battery than vista did on my lap top. I'm torn though just got a Dell mini 9 and can't decide between Mac OSX just because I can, or 7.

On it when I bought it;
4" from the down pipe
AirAid intake
trans, EGT, and boost on the A-pillar
2.5" leveler
So far I've added;
35" Toyo M/T's on 16" KMC Enduro's
Oh yeah, and my house 1970's 8ft Rancho El Rea
With more to come
