If Windows7 Was Johnny Depp I'd marry it!

Everything I have so far works with it (printer, PSE, CS and CS3 upgrade, Family Tree Maker, MS Office, etc.) AND among one of the way cool features I just discovered --the font folder shows a PREVIEW of the font typeface -- right on the outside of each font file! All of my docs transferred right over from my EHD. I've only had this thing for less than 8 hours and I couldn't be happier. So much better than Vista...Oh, and it is nice to have a functioning hard-drive, too!
Anyway, wanted to share my experience -- so far, so good!

Thanks, Vaugnde -- My Norton 360 seems to be working....
Karen, you have no idea what a headache this computer (and more specifically -- Dell) has been for me. I finally gave up on their "customer service," even though I have over a year of my warranty left and took my machine to a local mom & pop store. They fixed me up in 2 days with NO hassles. (Though it did cost me almost $500...*sigh*)
And MLL -- I didn't get an upgrade, I bought the full platform. AND, I paid a tech to install it for me because it is scary and time-consuming, but it CAN be done! As long as all your goodies are backed-up, you should be fine. (I did have to go to HP's website and get the newest driver for my printer, but that was the only small conflict I had.) You will love Windows7!!!

Glad to hear that all went well Jennifer. My DH has it here, but not sure he'll do it at the moment as he has a whole lot of security issues he has to go through when he installs something like that!! Big headache!! After our next move he'll do that though!
I like the new font thing though - sounds wonderful!!
