It's based on the Windows 7 codebase and not the Vista codebase like 2008 is, so it benefits from all the improvements that 7 has over Vista,eg lighter install, power management, less resources required which is a real benefit considering we have everything running on a VM cluster with limited space on a fast SAN

I just don't see the point in deploying a 2008 based system at this stage.
For us for now, it's just going to be on our own IT admin systems, we've all been running it full time since beta and it's lovely. I'd love to roll it out everywhere, but as we're still presently on XP it will require a lot of user retraining and testing first. Also it's not yet officially supported by Capita to for running SIMS, so we're stuck until they and various other pieces of software do.
People are rolling out Win7 straight away?!

Oooo - and me for my wife's new Dell Laptop. We will get the upgrade for free soon but cannot resist the download.

This is the only thing stopping us from a full rollout also!

On the machines that use SIMS, dont add it. Use it in classroom environment only in that instance! Staff will have to use it sooner or later!

We are moving to Vista this year, 7 just had a release date to far into the holidays and our AV and SIMS are not yet compatible.

Just ignore them and tell support you are on Vista instead. If it is anything like our SMS then the issues are almost never OS related. We only got official Vista support 7 months ago, I'm not waiting until 2012 just to upgrade to the next version because of the bunch of slackers that run MUSAC.

If we weren't rolling out SIMS at classroom level in September I wouldn't hesitate.
